Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Korea Franchise Association Los Angeles, CA

This is Ho-Wook Lee, .President of the Korea Franchise Association L.A. Office

South Korean Franchise industry that is thriving with “Korean Cultural (Hanliu) Boom into global world” has grown further from Food & Beverage industry to a broader spectrum of other industries like Wholesales / Retails, Services, and etc. The Korean Franchise Industry has already become one of the major strategic industries of Korean economy and emerged as a new axis of the 21st century retail systems.

With a little less than 30 years of franchise history in Korea, the Korean franchise industry is knocking door of the home of franchise, the U.S.A. market after successfully launching various franchise models in China and Southeast Asian markets. Some are even successfully settled in the U.S.A. market.

Just like any other markets, all foreign companies who enter into the USA market must understand the laws and survive from fierce competitions of the local retailers/distributors.

It is certain that the U.S.A. Franchise market offers exciting and lucrative new business opportunities based on a steady growth of the US economy and a wide spread of the Korean Wave; however, entering the U.S.A. market could be fatal without pre-formulated strategies for those dynamic challenges like federal/state/local laws, language and cultural barriers, differentiation and localization issues, master franchisee selection and management, location selection, labor and tax regulations, building codes and interior permits, exit strategies, and etc.

Therefore, Korea Franchise Association L.A. (KFA LA), is established to provide a comprehensive ONE-STOP understanding and convenient services in “New Franchise Distribution System” covering vital key dynamic challenges such as early market research, investment analysis, location selection, legal advices, interior design & construction, management and operations, etc. to all Korean franchisors who like to soft land and successfully expand their franchise models in U.S.A, the home of franchise.

With KFA Central Office at Seoul, KFA LA is also committed to direct its best efforts to facilitate efficient information sharing, establish firm network, strengthen legislative activities with city/state/federal governments, institutionalize Korean franchise expansion within the USA franchise industry, and support ALL KFA LA members including those existing Korean franchisors in U.S.A. I look forward to servicing you in the near future. Thank you.

Sincerely.

Ho-Wook Lee
