With over 90 percent of franchises in South Africa home-grown, it was a logical step for the Franchise Association of South Africa to be a strong proponent of Proudly SA. “Franchising is represented in almost every industry sector – from FMCG, real estate, education, retail and business to business,” says Tony Da Fonseca, FASA’s Chairman. “If each and every one of us, as franchisors, pledge to procure locally grown, produced and manufactured raw materials for their operations, we could generate much needed revenue that will, not only create much needed jobs but boost the country’s economic growth.”
“Buy local to create jobs is our mantra,” says Proudly SA CEO Eustace Mashimbye, “and we are proud that such an important sector as the franchise sector is giving us their support.”
As an incentive to all FASA members, Proudly SA offers the association members a 10% discount on their first year’s membership fees, and a 20% discount for those signing up for a two-year membership. For more information contact the FASA office on 011 615 0359 or email email@example.com.
