Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence
About the Centre
The Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence was created to help people like you find independent information and research on franchise best practice.
Several years back it came to our attention that a lot of information available on franchising on the internet was mostly PR material issued by franchises to help recruit franchisees.
It didn't really provide much assistance to people wanting to gain a better understanding of franchising - whether to buy a franchise or to franchise their business.
At the same time Griffith University had been researching franchising for more than a decade, yet most of the research findings were mainly published in academic journals, which are mostly read by other academics and university students, rather than by the people that can use the information the most - franchisors, franchisees, head office and support industry professionals.
Our aim is to help advance franchise sector best practice through independent research, education and the dissemination of information via the Centre's website www.******.**.
We also offer a wide range of franchise courses (online and face-to-face), professional development events, online seminars, research reports and more.
