You are reading a Directory of embers of the IFA's Supplier Forum presumably because you are either curious about the membership, or because you need a product or service which may be offered by someone identified in the directory. At this time Supplier Forum members are represented in 32 business categories. These Supplier Forum members are a sell-selected few among the thousands of companies that offer services and products to franchising companies. The companies listed in this directory have set themselves apart from the multitude of suppliers in two significant ways. By joining the Supplier Forum they have, through their dues contribution and, often, their active involvement in the organization's activities, demonstrated their commitment to the International Franchise Association (IFA), its members, their principles, mission and goals. They have also made an effort to develop services and products that are specially suited for franchisors and franchisees. They have generally invested time and money to better understand and serve the needs and problems of franchising systems. As a result of their interest and experience, you, as a franchise company executive should have every reason to expect that these qualifications will make them better able to provide the programs, services, products, creativity and insights that can make a franchising organization more efficient and more profitable.
