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 entries will be treated confidentially. 


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.
