Take a look at some of the existing Social Franchises and what they do.

If you are a social franchise, aspire to be a social franchise or wish to support the development of social franchising, join the Europe's social franchising membership organisation set up by social franchises.

We provide a range of membership benefits including:

  • Promotion of your social franchises through a range of activities including an annual conference, our Business in a Box social franchise workshops and a Directory entry on this web site
  • Access to a wealth of knowledge on social franchising including our "Opposites Attract" guide to social franchising
  • The credibility of being a member of the Europe's only social franchising membership organisation
  • An opportunity to be part of a rapidly growing new form of social enterprise development
  • Links with European support agencies and policy makers

To be a social franchise both the social franchisor and franchisees must be social enterprises (ie businesses that trade and have a social purpose) and there should be:

  1. An organisation that replicates a social enterprise business model - the social franchisor
  2. At least one independent social franchisee that has been replicated by the social franchisor
  3. A common brand under which the social franchisees operate.

You can also join as an Associate member for aspiring social franchise and those who support of social franchising.
