WorkBuzz publish list of franchise finalists

Survey specialists WorkBuzz have just announced the finalists for this year’s Best Franchise Awards. WorkBuzz, which prides itself on helping companies discover what their employees and business partners think of their bosses, will be unveiling the list of category winners during November.

The annual awards ceremony, which is now in its 11th year, includes a number of different categories, such as ‘Best Franchise Business to Business’; ‘Best Franchise Business to Consumer’; ‘Best Franchise Children’s Services’ and ‘Best Franchise Management’ – among others.

But before a full list of finalists (documented below) can be reached, WorkBuzz collects feedback from thousands of franchisees. For a company to qualify for this prestigious event, franchisors must first take part in the Franchise Satisfaction Benchmark programme. This programme asks franchisees to complete a confidential online survey, in which they are asked to rate their franchisor in a number of categories.

These include their experiences regarding initial training, ongoing support, the franchisor-franchisee relationship, and whether they would recommend the franchise to a prospective franchisee. The top-performing franchisors are recognised at the Best Franchise Awards which are sponsored by Lloyds Bank.

Steven Frost, the chief executive and founder of WorkBuzz, said: “Following the pandemic we’ve seen franchising bounce back fast. These franchisors have demonstrated the resilience of their business models, and have shown great leadership. They should be proud of their accomplishments.”

The list of finalists for a number of leading categories is as follows:

Business to Business: Tezlom, Pink Spaghetti, ActionCOACH.

Business to Consumer: Wilkins Chimney Sweep, Language for Fun, We Love Pets.

Children’s Services: Swimtime, The Creation Station, Kidslingo.

Management: FASTSIGNS, Revive!, Molly Maid.

New Entry Award: Soccer Stars Academy, The Little Sensory Company, Time For You.
