A Simple Model That Produces Attractive

Since its founding in California in 1985 by Dr. Ivan Misner, BNI has grown into a worldwide phenomenon, operating in more than 78 countries. We’re looking to continue our remarkable growth with exceptional franchise business leaders who are personally engaged in growing the brand and sharing our core values every day. 

As a BNI Master Franchisee, you will be instrumental in starting and growing chapters. Members are attracted to the organization for access to the network of fellow members who represent a wide range of business disciplines—essentially a roomful of new salespeople and potential leads for their own businesses. Members benefit from more members, so they double as recruiters, growing your chapter. You earn revenue from each member’s dues.

The Rewards of a BNI Master Franchise

Only BNI offers the structured, positive and results-driven referral program that produces long-term, meaningful relationships that result in more successful businesses. Beyond the financial rewards, our national directors make a major positive impact in their communities. Many leverage their work within their BNI chapter into higher profiles in their business community.

A Clear Sense of Purpose

BNI Master Franchisees repeatedly report that their job of helping business people achieve success is personally fulfilling. BNI Master Franchisees see the difference they are making in the world and they’re part of a company that believes in social responsibility.

Business people who are service-oriented and committed to doing good, who have strong sales and marketing skills and are looking for recurring revenue would make a great fit as a BNI Master Franchise owner.

BNI Master Franchisees Relish Meeting People and
Building Connections in the Communities They Serve

BNI Master Franchisees enjoy helping people connect and doing work that makes a major positive impact in their communities. That’s the common passion that binds everyone in our organization together.

The reliability and trustworthiness in our network BNI – this is what the entrepreneurs at BNI stand for and we are successful with it.“

Michael Mayer

National Director, Germany and Austria | Since 2009

In terms of skills and backgrounds, Master Franchisees also called National Directors come from all walks of life. Dr. Ivan Misner, BNI Founder and Chief Visionary Officer, has seen people with many different strengths make for outstanding franchisees. “I’ve seen analytical people run very successful regions because they surrounded themselves with very outgoing people; I’ve seen promoters and go-getters who are really good because they surround themselves with analytical people. Successful franchisees have confidence in their ability and know their style and they know how to form a winning team”.

Training People, Mastering Processes

A successful Sub-Franchisee also called Executive Director at BNI realizes that the recipe for growth lies in recruiting the right people for the team and empowering them with the right tools, such as training to succeed. An Executive Director must have the ability to connect with people. BNI has clearly outlined processes to follow at every stage of the business from conducting weekly meetings to hosting visitor events. A BNI franchisee must either be detail-oriented or surround themselves with others who possess those skills.
