National Awards are a perfect opportunity to showcase our achievements and demonstrate our commitment to delivering the very best support to our franchisees across the network.
We understand franchising is underpinned by a unique relationship and as a market leading franchisor we continue to invest in our franchisees. To be recognised for our commitment to our business and its future is a great honour.
Over the last year we have developed and implemented new technology within the care sector and created a number of new initiatives, raising awareness of industry related issues and ensuring our franchisees and their teams are recognised for their dedication, hard work and commitment through our own 'Franchise of the Year Awards' and the 'Bluebird Care Awards' respectively.
Following a rigorous judging process Bluebird Care were awarded Gold at this year's bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year Awards.
Pip Wilkins QFP, Chief Executive at the bfa, said:
Bluebird Care's achievement is truly inspiring and as judges, we couldn't help but notice the team's hard work and overall excellence in growing their franchise. We are excited to see how the business shapes itself in the near future,
The Inspirational Woman in Franchising Award recognises the most inspirational woman involved in franchising and was open to Woman franchisors, franchisees and service providers.
Reflecting on her win, Fiona said:
I am overwhelmed to have received this award, it is a privilege to be recognised as an inspirational woman within the franchising industry, each award category had so many strong finalists so I am thrilled to be given this award. I get up every morning and I feel driven to go into work and be a champion for what’s best in our industry. I hope that this achievement gives everyone in my network a great boost and I hope I can continue to inspire everyone around me.
Bluebird Care, the UK’s leading homecare provider, have won The Franchise Award for Innovation at the workingmums.co.uk 2nd Top Franchise Awards 2017.
On awarding Bluebird Care, the judges commented:
Bluebird Care presented a gold standard for other franchises. They were leaders in their industry in terms of their investment in technology to support franchisees and the elderly people they were caring for. It was both innovative in a business and social sense and its innovations could be adapted by franchisors across the board.
Bluebird Care won the ‘Continuous Improvement’ Award at this year’s Best Franchise Awards 2016.
Bluebird Care Franchise Recruitment Manager Carole Stubbs commented on attending the event:
This award is a great affirmation for our team at Franchise Support Centre who work so closely with all our Franchise Business Owners.
