bfa HSBC Franchisee of the Year Awards

Supported by Express Newspapers

You can enter one franchisee in up to 3 categories. Alternatively you enter a different franchisee for each of the categories.  

The entry process
You will receive a hard copy of the full brochure and entry form in the post, but if you want to get started right away you can download a copy of the entry form.  

Here are the key things you need to send us when entering:

  • A fully completed award entry form.
  • A  1,000 word outline written by the franchisee of their achievements, facts, figures and story behind their entry.
  • Up-to-date audited franchisee accounts, or if they are unavailable, management accounts, which must be signed by an accountant.
  • Please supply any additional material in an A4 format.

All entriies will be treated confidentially. 


Please remember:
The Award entry has to be provided in A4 hard copy format. Unfortunately we can not accept DVDs, CDs or other electronic submission or evidence. 

Please avoid heat/spiral binding your entry. Entries will need to be copied for the judges so any heat/spiral bound entries will be separated. If you prefer, you can use a clip presentation folder, ring binder or similar. 

The judges want to see that your business is operating healthily and is profitable, much like we do for bfa accreditation,  so please do not submit accounts that are more than a year old. 

What if I want to enter more than one award?

If you are entering your franchisee  into more than one category then you will need to send in a written entry for each one you are entering. You will only need to submit one set of supporting documentation i.e. most recent audited accounts as these can be used across all categories your franchisee is entering.
