Martin and Co has been awarded “Franchisor of the Year” at the Negotiator Awards. This national recognition confirms this UK wide lettings brand as a key player in both the property industry and the franchise arena.
Martin & Co are no strangers to winning awards having entered this award category twice and winning on both occasions. Martin & Co has over 170 offices around the UK, and is one of the leading lettings brand, and has developed particularly over the last three years – with a dedicated brand for London and student homes being rolled out successfully alongside an new on-line agent franchise proposition.
Scott Burgess, Franchise Director commented: “It is a tribute to the hard work, dedication, and passion of all staff, but more than that it is a reflection of the proven systems and process already in place, after all that’s what franchising is all about to enable our letting businesses to prosper even in these competitive times”.
This franchise brand has set new records this year with over £3 million in group fee income in October and delving deeper into the figures Martin & Co is on track to achieve £36 million in group fee income in 2012.
In a highly competitive market the strength of a brand is key, and the challenges of the downturn in the economic climate and keeping a business afloat can be a tall order, but achieving growth and a money-spinning business demands a strong business model. With over 15 years as a franchise Martin & Co are on the right road to continue their development with launches scheduled already in 2012 for new on-line agents, new franchises and company shops.
