The bfa is proud of the standards its members uphold to the world at large and one of the most important objectives is to celebrate those standards. For more than 30 years now the bfa has hosted annual awards to showcase the very best in British franchising.
Building and maintaining a strong, successful network, one that fulfils the mutual needs and objectives of both the franchisor and the franchisee, requires a huge
investment of time, effort, and commitment, not to mention considerable skill and judgement. The ethos of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards is about recognition and reward for this effort and achievement, and as the top accolades of the franchising industry, they set out to acknowledge the most outstanding performers within it.
It is a tremendous honour for franchisors and franchisees to be shortlisted and one that can reap major benefits for the winning brands for many years. However, as many discover, the very process of entering these awards can also bring valuable business benefits as preparing the entry gives the brand an opportunity to reassess their business strategy and objectives. These established awards really put the finalists in the spotlight too with a PR reach in excess of 74 million and a PR value of over £1.1 million.
Entering an award is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the amazing milestones and achievements that were had by your brand over the last year from both the franchisor and the franchisees. To have the chance to examine the good work of your team and your franchisees will provide them with a level of confidence that will generate productivity and growth throughout your network. If you believe you and your team have done a top job this year, then don’t miss the chance to show it off. Celebrate yourself and your team’s hard work, commitment and dedication to the business and be recognised by the wider franchise community. You deserve it!
