تميزت مجلة “الفرانشايز” بمقال للدكتور خالد الشرفاء ، رئيس مجلس إدارة جمعية الشرق الأوسط وشمال إفريقيا للأمتياز التجاري “.

يسرني أن أشارك أفكاري ورؤيتي في منح حقوق الأمتياز بمنطقة الشرق الأوسط بصفتي رئيس مجلس إدارة جمعية الشرق الأوسط وشمال إفريقيا لحقوق الأمتياز التجارى (منافع) حيث تساهم الامتيازات في البلدان المتقدمة بنسبة تصل إلى 50 المائة من قطاع تجارة التجزئة.

شراء امتياز فى أفضل الحالات يسمح لك بتجنب العديد من المعوقات عوضا عن البدء بعمل تجارى من الألف إلى الياء كما يحسن الأمتياز التجارى من احتمالات النجاح و لقد رأينا أن حق الامتياز لديه نسبة نجاح 90٪ مقارنة مع البدء فى عمل جديد “وفي أسوأ الحالات إذا كان قرار التفكير بالقيام بإستثمار يبدو قاسيا بعض الشئ ويمكن أن يكون كابوسا إذا لم تسر الأمور علي ما يرجي لها لأنه لا يمكنك ببساطة الأبتعاد بعد الشروع فى العمل بهذا القرار. فأنت لا تزال مسؤولا عن قيمة الإيجارات على المدى الطويل لمساحة التجزئة الخاصة بك كم أن القرض المصرفي الكبير الذي أخذته لتمويل الأعمال التجارية و  الإلتزام طويل الأجل تجاه مانح الأمتياز كل هذه عوامل قد تزيد من إحتمالية أن تتأثر جميع جوانب حياتك بهذا القرار حيث أن الأعباء المالية تؤثر حتما على حياتك وعلى تفكيرك و تقديرك لذاتك وإمكاناتك لذلك نحن نعتقد أن جمعية منافع تلعب دورا هاما في تعزيز وتطوير صناعة الأمتياز في منطقة مجلس التعاون الخليجي لتفادى بعض القرارات أو الممارسات الخاطئة وتساعدك لأختيار الأمتياز المناسب”
