Driver Hire is one of eight finalists in the prestigious 2015 bfa and HSBC ‘Franchisor of the Year’ awards.
An award winner in 2006 and 2012, Driver Hire has regularly been in the finals for the past decade. A finalist nine times out of the last ten years.
Commenting on the nominations, Andy Brattesani, UK head of franchising for HSBC, said: “Thanks to the calibre of entries, we’ve arrived at a list of businesses that really highlight the diversity found in modern franchising. The finalists, a strong combination of established and newer franchisors, should be very proud to have been shortlisted for their dedication to exceptional business practices. We look forward to hearing more about their success at the judging.”
Chris Chidley, Driver Hire’s Chief Executive added: “Our business model, franchise support and customer service all contribute to our ongoing success. It’s great that our efforts have been recognised in this way. To repeatedly make it to the finals says a huge amount about our business and what it offers our franchisees.”
Finalists will present to a judging panel of industry experts in London on 20 & 21 May, with winners announced at a black-tie dinner on the 25th June at the ICC in Birmingham.
