Pip Wilkins, CEO at the bfa, states:
“There have been incredible displays of commitment to franchising over the last year. I have been overwhelmed by the resilience of the industry and how so many have come together to support one another and their communities. I can’t wait to hear from the brands who really have gone above and beyond.”
Andy Brattesani, Head of UK Franchising at HSBC, adds:
“If ever there was a year to be proud of what you have achieved this is the one. I fear the judging will be tougher the more we hear about the resilience and adaptability of the world of franchising”
