The International Franchise Association (IFA) and the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) have launched a new online matchmaking portal designed to streamline franchise companies seeking real estate and landlords and brokers looking for retailers to fill open space.

The ICSC/IFA Matchmaking Database (icsc.org/ifa) can be accessed by thousands of retail and real estate professionals online daily. Retailers can post their need for space and landlords and brokers can post available retail space. The searchable databases contain available retail properties by location, size, ownership/management and demographic information.

"This new tool will help link new franchise developments with available real estate, thereby escalating the pace at which businesses are coming to market and speeding up the creation of new jobs," Steve Caldeira, IFA president & CEO, said in a press release.

Retailers can list their need for space using common fields including, size of property, scope of business, space needed (type of shopping center), demographics and other parameters. All active ICSC and IFA members may post all their available properties and space needs for free. Listings on the site are secure and members provide continuous updates so they remain timely.
