#Winners at franchise awards revealed

It was an exciting time for franchisees right across the country this month as the Franchisor of the Year Awards took place in Nottingham.

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the prestigious event as franchisees came together to celebrate their hard work.

In April, the 15 finalists presented to the judging panel and this left them with a very difficult decision to make. But they chose three winners who had shown real innovation and excellent business sense at a time when other business struggled through the recession. And now, the winners have finally been revealed.

For the bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year Award, TaxAssist Accountants was awarded Gold, Dominoes Pizza was given Silver and Autosmart was given Bronze.

The HSBC Franchisee Support Award went to Revive! and the Express Newspapers Brand Builder award went to Cook.

It was an exciting event which really saw the hard workers in the franchise world receive the rewards they deserved.

Brian Smart who is the director general of the British Franchise Association (bfa) said that all the winners are a credit to the franchise sector and that they should be ‘commended for their hard work and dedication which has served their franchisees so well.’
