Giant franchisor celebrates historic news at recent gathering of business partners in Birmingham

Neighbourly post ‘best-ever’ annual UK sales

It was drinks all round when many of Neighbourly’s UK franchisees met up at the National Exhibition Centre for their annual conference. This three-day event was attended by more than 500 of the company’s franchisees, who own businesses across Neighbourly’s six UK brands.

During the gala dinner which took place on the final day, the managing director of Neighbourly UK, Phil Carr, told members that the franchisor had posted annual UK sales of over £190m during 2022.

He also used the occasion to welcome the company’s newest recruit, Greensleeves, to the Neighbourly family. The other five brands are Bright and Beautiful, Countrywide Grounds Maintenance, Drain Doctor, Dream Doors and Pimlico Plumbers.

Those who had travelled to the midlands were encouraged to network, collaborate and enjoy the many inspirational talks on offer. And Phil Carr told the arena: “Reunion is all about bringing our franchisee community together, so we can share business updates, provide networking opportunities and celebrate success. It’s also a time to have some fun.

“Last year was a fantastic time for us, as we achieved record-breaking sales across our brands. And meeting up here gives us the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the hard-work and commitment shown by the network.”

The event itself was called ‘Bold and Courageous’, and included an awards’ ceremony on the final day. Those honoured at the gala dinner were:
