Associate Membership

The SFA Associate Member program is designed to bring value to franchisees and valuable benefits to participating vendors. Each year, you will have the opportunity to renew your membership with your conference registration. If you wish to join mid-year, your fee will be applied to the following conference. Membership runs from July 1 – June 30 each year.

Becoming a member is the ONLY way for you to access the franchisees directly through the SFA. No other advertising or meeting opportunities are offered.

There are several requirements the SFA looks for before signing on a Vendor:

  1. The Vendor must be able to provide value to SFA Members, whether through cost savings, benefits or services
  2. The Vendors must be able to position itself ahead of its competitors, whether through pricing, quality, service, benefits and/or technology
  3. The Vendor must be able to meet any applicable CKE or SFA Standards
  4. The Vendor must provide references and may be researched by the SFA

Although membership is combined with our conference registration, it is possible to join mid- year at a pro-rated amount. To receive information on membership please email
