bfa and ITN Productions announce collaboration in ‘Franchising the Next Generation’

Posted 17/12/2018 : By: Debbie Dennis

Due to the success of The Future is Franchising, the British Franchising Association’s (bfa’s) and ITN’s first series on the franchising sector, the bfa has partnered with ITN Productions again to create ‘Franchising the Next Generation’.

Presented by national newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, the flagship news-style programme will take an in-depth look at how modern franchises operate and will spotlight the huge opportunities open to potential franchisees.

‘Franchising the Next Generation’ will showcase the people behind these success stories and will explain how young entrepreneurs looking to start their first business can become part of the growing phenomenon. Furthermore, the programme will examine why international brands look to the UK as an example of how a business should be run, explore how international franchises operate in the UK and will highlight the integral role the bfa plays in setting the very best of standards.

Drawing upon ITN’s 60-year heritage and expertise in storytelling, the news-style piece will combine interviews and reports with sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations and will premiere at the bfa’s annual conference in June 2019.
