WorkBuzz has announced the winners of The Best Franchise Awards 2022, sponsored by Lloyds Bank. The presentation took place at the British Franchise Association Annual Conference and Awards in Birmingham at The Vox.
The Best Franchise Awards are unique because they are based on feedback from thousands of actual franchisees. Each franchisee completes WorkBuzz’s confidential online Franchise Satisfaction Benchmark survey, rating their franchisor on everything from training and support to shared goals and how the experience of being a franchisee compares with their expectations.
The 2022 winners were:
Best New Entry – Soccer Stars Academy
Best Franchise – Business-to-Business – Pink Spaghetti
Best Franchise – Business-to-Consumer – We Love Pets
Best Franchise – Children’s Services – Swimtime
Best Franchise – Management – Revive!
Steven Frost, CEO of WorkBuzz said: “We would like to heartily congratulate all the finalists and the winners of the Best Franchise Awards 2022. It’s been a big year and the quality of entrants has been consistently impressive – and, adding to that, we’ve seen an ever-wider field of competition, with 23 first-time entrants.
“Of course, what continues to make these awards truly unique is that they are based on real feedback from the people who should know: thousands of actual franchisees. Looking ahead, we’re excited to continue to recognise excellence in franchising.”
Suki Dehal, Franchise Development Manager at sponsors Lloyds Banking Group, said: “Lloyds Bank are delighted to support WorkBuzz with The Best Franchise Conference and Awards again this year. It has been wonderful to hear success stories from brands across various sectors to see how they are thriving in the challenging economic climate we are currently seeing.
“To see how the event has grown in stature over the years is testament to the work done by the team at WorkBuzz to provide in-depth feedback, which has been invaluable to the growth of franchise brands.”
The FSB is overseen by WorkBuzz. The benchmark works by inviting existing franchisees to participate in an anonymous online survey which asks them 32 questions about their franchise ownership experience. Using a consistent methodology, the franchise is assigned an overall FSB score. The highest performing franchisors are then recognised in The Best Franchise Awards.
