Well done to Award Leisure who have just been short listed for the BFA HSBC Franchise Awards. As one of 3 companies in the 'Emerging Franchisors' category, Award Leisure have earned their place at the top. Working wth The Franchise Company, Award Leisure took a established business that was nearly 30 years old to the franchise market, and in 2017 exhibited at the NEC BFA franchise exhibition.
Julie Waites from The Franchise Company says '“Right from the first meeting at the National Franchise Exhibition at the NEC Award leisure were committed to franchising and doing it the right way. They invested in the development of their franchise model working with ourselves and a BFA affiliate solicitor and within 3 months of the NEC they received accreditation from the British Franchise Association to join as a franchisor member and exhibit at the London franchise exhibition. They take advantage of their membership by attending a range of BFA events with the opportunity to network, listen and learn from the experiences of a wide range of franchisors across many sectors and we continue to support them in their network development. Their investment is paying dividends with the appointment of their first franchisee who is sharing in their success in the operation of the business model. A text book example of how to approach franchising in a structured and ethical way. They deserve every success.”
Good luck guys!
