Time is ticking closer until the winners of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards are announced. X-Press Legal Services are proud that Tom Mannion, Owner of X-Press franchise office for Central, South West, and North West London, has been named as a finalist for the ‘Next Generation’ category.
This award is for franchisees 35 and under. The judges are looking for a young franchisee, who has established a profitable franchise and achieved success beyond their years.
Lynne Lister, X-Press Legal Services managing director said, “We are delighted for Tom and his team. Being shortlisted in this category is wonderful, as it celebrates younger people in franchising. Here at X-Press Legal we believe in the power of all ages being able to set up their own franchise business. Everyone can learn from each other and we are proud that our network of 26 offices all work so closely together.”
Tom set up his X-Press Legal franchise six years ago, aged just 23. He has recently developed his business by providing specialist agricultural and landed estates searches. These searches are far more complex than a standard residential search with issues such as public rights of way and road closures.
Tom commented, “I was surprised and delighted to have been nominated for the awards. To become a finalist is incredibly rewarding.”
Andrew Brattesani, Head of Franchising at HSBC, added, “Sharing his best practice with the wider network, and winning accolades with X-Press Legal Services and getting shortlisted for external ones, Tom has excelled as a local business owner.”
The team at X-Press are excited to attend the bfa virtual annual conference and awards on the 30th November.
