WorkBuzz has today announced the finalists of the 2021 Best Franchise Awards, sponsored by Lloyds Bank. What makes these awards unique is that they are based on feedback from thousands of franchisees – meaning they highlight the best franchises out there.
To be considered, franchisors must have taken part in the Franchise Satisfaction Benchmark programme. Franchisees are asked to complete a confidential online survey, rating their franchisor on qualities such as initial training, ongoing support, their relationship with the franchisor, and whether they would recommend the franchise to a prospective franchisee. The top-performing franchisors are then put forward as finalists in the Best Franchise Awards.
The 2021 finalists are:
|Best Franchise Business to Business||Best Franchise Business to Consumer||Best Franchise Management||Best Franchise Children’s Services|
|Card Connection||Language for Fun||Betterclean Services||babyballet|
|TaxAssist Accountants||We Love Pets||Molly Maid||diddi dance|
|The Alternative Board||Wilkins Chimney Sweep||Right at Home||Little Learners|
Best New Entrant Award
Shortlisted for the Best New Entry Award are babyballet, Card Connection and Tappy Toes. This award is open to franchisors who have participated for the first time and received outstanding feedback from their franchisees.
Steven Frost, CEO and founder of WorkBuzz, said: “The last 18 months have created unprecedented challenges for virtually every type of business, and franchising is not immune. These franchisors have shown outstanding leadership and supported their franchise networks during challenging times, with many bouncing back even stronger. They should be proud of what they’ve achieved and the difference they’ve made to their franchisees.”
The winners of the Best Franchise Awards 2021 will be announced at the bfa annual conference, supported by WorkBuzz – an event that brings together the franchise industry from across the UK to network and share their experiences.
