Monkey Music is delighted to announce that it is a finalist in the 'Franchisee Support' category of the prestigious British Franchise Association (bfa) Franchisor of the Year Awards.

The next stage of the Awards, a key event in the franchise industry calendar, will involve a presentation to the judges that will take place at the offices of Express Newspapers in London on May 20.

Angie Coates, Founder of Monkey Music, said: “We’re obviously delighted to be on the final shortlist, especially in the 'Franchisee Support' category. The dedicated support and high level of training that Monkey Music HQ share with the Monkey Music network is at the heart of our day to day work - so to be recognised as providing something special by the bfa means a great deal to all the HQ team! We’re looking forward to the judging and hope to be able to announce some really good news afterwards!”

Monkey Music is an award-winning national franchise – the UK’s premium music group for pre-school children. More than 50 franchises currently operate in over 300 locations across the UK and every week more than 10,000 children visit Monkey Music classes.

In the past two years, Monkey Music has recorded an average franchisee turnover growth figure of over 30% - during a similar two year period an average growth of just over 4% was reported across the franchising industry (source – Natwest/British Franchise Association survey 2012).
