The Franchising and Licensing Association (FLA) (Singapore), first launched the FLA Awards in 2005 to recognise and honour distinguished achievers in the local franchise and license industry. Through the years, the awards have recognised visionaries who have introduced innovative ideas and concepts and honoured distinguished and promising businesses and brands which have inspired others to explore new frontiers and achieve excellence. The ultimate goal of FLA is to cultivate a pool of franchising and licensing players to strengthen Singapore’s position as the heart of franchising and licensing in Asia.
The 16th edition of the Awards serves as a formidable platform for successful franchise concepts and businesses to be showcased in the international arena, as well as sets the national benchmark for franchise concepts aspiring to greater heights. Over 280 brands have benefitted from the Awards since its inception for example Ng Ah Sio Bak Kut Teh, Benjamin Barker, Seoul Garden, Anytime Fitness, Dancing Crab Global Art, Eimaths, Pezzo and many more.
The Awards, which consisted of both Competitive and Recognition Awards, comprised 11 different categories that recognized and honored the various stakeholders in the franchise and license industry — Franchisors, Licensors, and Franchisees.
