Commonly referred to as the nation’s ‘Oscars’ of franchising, the award ceremony is set to take place on 30 November.
The awards pays honour to the very best in franchising, specifically spotlighting franchisors and franchisees who have acted in an ethical fashion.
Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchise Association, said: “There have been incredible displays of commitment to the franchising over the last year.
“I have been overwhelmed by the resilience of the industry and how so many have come together to support one another and their communities. I can’t wait to hear from the brands who really have gone above and beyond.”
Andy Brattesani, head of UK franchising at HSBC, said: “If ever there was a year to be proud of what you have achieved this is the one. I fear the judging will be tougher the more we hear about the resilience and adaptability of the world of franchising.”
