The bfa HSBC Franchise of the Year awards are a fantastic opportunity to be recognised by your peers as one of the best within the franchising industry, while delivering a major boost to your business and brand image. Being named a winner is a tremendous honour and one that can reap major promotional benefits for the winning businesses.

This year the Franchisor and Franchisee of the Year awards have been combined to make one big night of celebration, and we are now opening the entries for Franchisors. 

With new categories this year to enter, including a new award for International Development, there is more opportunity than ever to get involved. 

The Water Babies team, led by founder Paul Thompson (front row, left), Franchisor of the Year 2016Last year our awards programme gained a PR value of over £830,000. This is a great chance to get your name out there to a wider audience, and also promote the success of your brand. We are able to champion good ethical franchising by circulating your winning case studies across extensive media channels, both online and offline.

The application process can also help you re-evaluate your business, allowing you to assess both your current and future business strategies and ongoing aims and objectives. 

Most importantly, it can be used to motivate and highlight the good work of your franchisees to provide them with a level of confidence that will generate productivity and growth throughout your network. After all, success in these awards is a reflection of not only your success, but the success of your entire network!

To get involved, download our entry pack here, and make sure your entries are with us by 5pm on Friday, 3rd February 2017.

Good luck!
