We’re All Winners
Entering for the growing number of industry awards, from franchise marketing and franchisee performance through to environmental prizes, takes up a considerable amount of time and internal resources, so we tend to be quite sparing in our participation.
Nevertheless, it’s good to benchmark our performance against that of our industry peers, including major FMCG brands, so we do pull out the stops occasionally, often with considerable success.
As you’ll see below, we and one of our pioneer franchise owners gained notable accolades in the major award schemes recently and, in the immediate future, we plan to enter more. So watch this space.
Peter Morrison, Bronze Award bfa/HSBC Franchisee of the Year
We submitted one of our top franchise owners, Peter Morrison, for the nationwide Franchisee of the Year Awards in 2010. He won Bronze overall and topped the Midlands category. The judges commended Peter for his application of imaginative, creative business solutions, enabling the continued prosperity of his business. He also won our own Franchisee of the Year award, after exceeding the £1 million turnover mark.
Granite Transformations, Winner Franchisee Marketing Support Award
In 2010 we won one of the most respected franchisor prizes in the UK industry calendar, in the Franchise Marketing Awards. Winning the overall prize, we were recognised by the FMA for our innovative and effective marketing campaigns for products, service and franchise support. We were also recognised as a finalist in the best TV advertising category.
Granite Transformations, Runner-Up bfa/HSBC Franchisee Support Award
Underlining our continued commitment to franchisor support, we were runners-up in that category in the prestigious bfa/HSBC Franchisor of the Year 2011. The fact that our franchise owners had collectively achieved 23% in revenue growth, during the previous financial year, undoubtedly contributed to our success.
