AVA Creative Solutions is a Cairo, Egypt-based professional services architecture organization. AVA Creative Solutions offers fast, cost-effective architectural services to homeowners, designers, contractors, and other professionals in the home improvement segment of the building industry.
Founded by a group of young professional entrepreneurs in 2001, With the broad vision of extending its services to new markets, AVA Creative Solutions currently offers its experience through affiliates in Qatar, as a regional startup in the Middle East, in addition to Zambia in Africa. As the market demand increased steadily for architectural services not only in close-by regions but also in Canada, the U.S. and Europe, the relevance of franchise expansion became clear.
Franchise Marketing Systems was hired to develop the franchise model for International franchise expansion, specifically targeting the Middle East and African markets. Franchise Marketing Systems franchised the business model in 2015 and developed the platform, business model, systems and procedures necessary to open new offices in countries around the world.
The business model leveraged architects based in Cairo, Egypt who provided professional architectural services to franchisees in other countries. New franchise offices were opened in Canada, Africa, Southeast Asia and Eastern Europe. Franchisees have generally been professionals who could sell and market the services to commercial customers in their market and represent the brand in their area.
Depending on the market, many of the franchise owners did not need to be licensed as an architect. AVA was able to expand into these countries through this independent ownership without the expense, cost and difficulties of staffing company employees in these markets. Franchisees benefit from having access to a proven brand, resources and architects to deliver the services needed.
The mission of AVA Architects is accomplished through the development of long-term partnerships with our clients which extends to after-sale commitment in all of our projects and long-term client relationships.
Vision: To develop a professional, multinational service-based group, through the fine selection of young, well-educated talented, high-calibre professionals and stakeholders in the group.
The development of the AVA Architects franchise platform has allowed the brand to expand globally and into markets in far-reaching regions through independent owner-operator franchisees.
In particular, in a business segment like the architectural services market, where licensing is unique and can be complex, having franchisees who manage the business and can confirm that they are compliant with local laws and regulations was a significant benefit.
