The Significance of Franchising: A Resilient Pillar
In an era of global economic challenges, franchising is a beacon of success. Its enduring track record of long-term sustainability and a promising future stands as a testament to its resilience. Over the last six decades, franchising has become a substantial driver of South Africa’s GDP, constituting an impressive 15% through a network of nearly 800 franchise systems. The country proudly hosts 68,000 franchises spanning fourteen sectors, offering employment to nearly half a million individuals.
Fred Makgato, CEO of the Franchise Association of South Africa, articulates, “The unifying factor that binds franchising globally is the determination to overcome obstacles and emerge more robust as the world’s economy recovers.
“Whether you are an established business, a start-up or an emerging business, you cannot miss the opportunity to showcase to thousands of visitors what you are offering and, in turn, how they can craft their own financial security by joining the franchise community.”
