The British Franchise Association (bfa) is to assume a key role in two new television series designed to promote understanding of key franchising issues.

The bfa has worked closely with the BBC on the new series of Fake Britain, which exposes dodgy products and practices in the business community.

The new series, which begins next month, will highlight the dangers posed by businesses using franchising terminology, in an attempt to help prospective franchisees make better decisions when exploring new commercial opportunities.

Furthermore, the bfa has taken part in a new series for Sky’s Showcase channel, which will explore the various aspects of investing in a franchise.
