Dubbed ‘The Oscars’ of the franchise industry, the prestigious event celebrates the best of the best in franchising, showcasing franchisors and franchisees alike who are committed to ethical franchising.
The awards provide an exceptional opportunity to recognise your dedication, innovation, and devotion to your business and the franchise industry overall. Just being shortlisted for an award brings significant brand exposure for your business and an increase to your reputation.
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”
Being shortlisted as a finalist for the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards is so much more than the chance to claim a shiny trophy and a framed certificate. It is an opportunity for self-reflection – essential for ongoing business growth, a chance to recognise and celebrate tenacity, creativity and innovation and finally it presents that all important accolade for you and your brand to shout about.
