Bluestones Logistics Join British Franchise Association
Continuing on from their successful application with the FTA earlier this year, Bluestones Logistics has successfully joined the British Franchise Association (bfa). The bfa is the only voluntary self-regulatory body for the franchise industry in the UK. The accreditation process involves companies being tested against strict and extensive criteria, and the recent success is an exciting win for the company.
Operating in a niche recruitment market, Bluestones Logistics offers both the opportunity for ambitious and hungry recruitment professionals to open their own franchise, as well as placing drivers and logistics personnel, in roles with a variety of clients. The accreditation will cement their reputation within the franchise industry, and help to promote them as an ethical franchise opportunity for potential business.
Director Ken Rush said: “To be accepted as a member of the bfa after only a relatively short time of franchising, is, as far as I’m concerned, the icing on the cake. Due to the very high standards required by the association, a great deal of hard work has gone into preparing our application to ensure it meets the bfa’s stringent requirements.
"Our membership will provide all our potential franchisees with the peace of mind that Bluestones Logistics operate an ethical franchise model and will deliver on all its promises.”
Simon Bartholomew, Chairman of the bfa, said: “By joining the bfa as a Provisional Member, Bluestones Logistics has undertaken to develop their franchise network from the outset in accordance with the bfa’s strict set of criteria relating to best practice, operational procedures and franchisee support. This is an important and welcome first step towards their long-term commitment to ethical franchising.”
The Bluestones Group offers a platform designed to help budding entrepreneurs make the transition between dream and reality. With back office support for HR, accounts, systems and process, marketing, and web, the Group is able to help potential partners to achieve their vision.
