When trying to get an idea of the best franchises this country has to offer, you could do a lot worse than to ask their franchisees. This is something the Smith and Henderson Best Franchise Awards are well aware of, recognising the UK’s best franchisors as rated by their franchise owners. And it seems the nation’s franchisees have spoken: the finalists have been announced ahead of the awards later this month.
The finalists are split across three categories based on level of investment. Included in the shortlist of franchises available for under £25,000 are Diddi Dance, Music Bugs and The Best Of, while ActionCOACH, Coversure and EweMove Sales and Lettings have been named the cream of the crop for those costing between £25,000 and £75,000. Finally, the finalists in the over £75,000 category are Home Instead Senior Care, Right At Home and TaxAssist Accountants.
Steven Frost, director of Smith & Henderson, said: “Many congratulations to all our finalists; because of the unique way our awards work, based on testimonial from their own franchisees, these finalists should be congratulated for already being amongst the best of the best in British franchising.”
David Williams, director of business development for franchising at Royal Bank of Scotland, the awards’ sponsor, said: “The standard of entries has once again been very high and demonstrates the strength of the franchise industry and its contribution to the growth of the economy. We are delighted to be sponsoring the awards for a second year and wish all the finalists the very best of luck. All are deserving winners and we are pleased to see some new names being recognised for their success.”
The winners will be announced at the Best Franchise Conference in Milton Keynes on November 26.
