Finalists for the Awards, sponsored by RBS and supported by Franchise World, were announced on Tuesday 4th November by Smith & Henderson. The shortlisted franchisors were selected based on feedback from thousands of actual franchisees, gathered through an industry-wide study of franchisee satisfaction.
Franchisees from across the franchising industry were invited to complete the anonymous Franchise Satisfaction Benchmark survey and rate the training and support provided by their franchisor, the franchise system and their overall franchise ownership experience.
David Williams, Director Franchising at RBS England & Wales said:
“The Best Franchise awards bring together some of the UK’s finest franchisors and celebrates their success and the opportunities available for franchisees. With increasing numbers of new business start-ups following the franchise route it is vital for franchisors to make their business model stand out and set high standards for the implementation of the franchise. The finalists shortlisted have all set themselves apart from the competition and we are delighted to be part of the awards and congratulate all the finalists. We look forward to hearing who the winners are and meeting them at the awards ceremony on 27th November”
The Award Winners will be announced at the Best Franchise Conference on 27th November, in Milton Keynes.
