Corporate Franchisor/Franchisee Membership


Thank you for your interest in the Southeast Franchise Forum. We receive a tremendous number of inquiries from suppliers, and as a result we have had to establish some criteria to ensure a balance of suppliers and the services they provide.

The first is the number of supplier member companies will not exceed the number of franchisor member companies. The second is that we will have no more than two suppliers per business category (with the exception of those SEFF supplier members in categories that exceed two at the time of institution of this policy) following the supplier category list established by the IFA. The objective of each of the criteria is to ensure a balanced membership and a variety of support services to our franchisor members.

As openings become available we will take recommendations for new suppliers from our current SEFF membership, and we will consider suppliers who are current IFA members. If you are not a current member of the IFA you can learn more at

Please note if you are a member of the IFA you are welcome to attend any of our SEFF quarterly luncheons where we host the IFA’s Franchise Business Network by registering on the SEFF website and paying the luncheon fee.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at Again, thank you for your interest in the Southeast Franchise Forum.
