Rainbow International were recently shortlisted for the bfa’s Franchisor of the Year Awards and were in attendance at the awards ceremony to support the winners. Although they were narrowly pipped to the post, the Rainbow International Head Office team were still extremely proud to have been shortlisted among so many large brands.
Franchisors in the category were judged on the support they offer to franchisees, their business growth, engagement with franchisees and a dedication to ethical franchising. To be shortlisted was a huge honour for Rainbow International and not winning won’t put them off going for Gold next year! They were still happy to celebrate with the other nominees and winner at the Black Tie event hosted by the bfa after their annual conference.
“We might not have won the top prize this year but to be shortlisted alongside some of the best in the industry shows how strong our business and our entry for the awards was. We work hard to support our network on a daily basis so it was great to have our work recognised by such an influential industry body. We know that training and support is key to a strong franchise network which is why we put so much time and effort into our franchise network. To explain everything we do on a daily basis in one award entry was a challenge but the judges could clearly see the effort we put in to maintaining a strong and successful franchise network,” explains Simon Ford, Operations Director at Rainbow International.
