Apollo Blinds is an associate member of the bfa
Apollo Blinds was one of the original members of the British Franchise Association (bfa) when it was formed in 1977 and is proud to be an associate member of the organisation, which promotes ethical franchising practice in the UK.
The bfa is the voluntary self-regulatory body for the UK franchise sector, and franchise businesses must pass a standards-based accreditation test before they can become bfa members.
In order to become an associate member, Apollo Blinds has undergone detailed and rigorous scrutiny of its business model to ensure that it is robust and offers long-term security and opportunities to run successful businesses for people who make an investment to join the Apollo Blinds network.
The bfa has also looked into franchisees who have joined the network within the last 12 months and people who have left the network within the last 12 months. It has left no stone unturned, and our membership denotes our compliance with the highest standards of ethical franchising.
With more than 45 years’ experience, Apollo Blinds is very proud that it has developed and refined a franchise model that is sustainable and offers people the opportunity to run their own businesses. And it’s testament to this that we have franchisees in our network who have owned and run businesses for more than 30 years, and others have second generations of the same family running their franchises. We know that. And the bfa agrees.
