We are extremely proud to announce that Wagging Tails franchisee Teresa Bowers has been announced as a Finalist for Woman Franchisee of the Year at the 2013 EWIF (Encouraging Women into Franchising) Awards.
Having joined Wagging Tails in December 2010 Teresa successfully launched and developed the Oxfordshire (OX Postcode) franchise before deciding to take on a second territory in 2012 when she launched the Reading Branch of Wagging Tails.
Now in their third year the EWIF Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of women in franchising. EWIF co-chair, Louise Harris said;
“Reading through the entries I was totally inspired by the professionalism and achievements of these women; they’re all tremendous role models, not only for women in the UK franchising industry but also for the wider business community and they should be proud of themselves for having made the finals of the EWIF 2013 awards against, what has to be said, some pretty stiff competition from their peers. The aim of EWIF is to encourage more women into franchising and with examples such as these I’m sure we’ll see many more women choosing franchising as a career in the future.”
The winners will be announced at the Awards Ceremony which will be held at RBS House in London on 16 May 2013.
I’m sure you will all join us in wish Teresa the best of luck!
