Dundee franchisee is a finalist for national award
Congratulations to our Driver Hire Dundee & Perth franchisee, Jordan Tracey, who is in line for a national award.
He is one of the finalists in the 2021 bfa HSBC Franchise Awards, in the ‘Next Generation’ category.
Jordan bought the Driver Hire Dundee & Perth franchise in spring 2020 aged 23. Within weeks the country went into lockdown and Jordan, along with thousands of other UK businesses, was in uncharted waters. Through hard work and steely determination, Jordan hasn’t just weathered the Covid storm, he’s mastered it and is on course to comfortably exceed £1m turnover in the current financial year.
However his CV started long before that. After school, Jordan helped to stack shelves at a newsagents, where his mum was manager and upon leaving school aged 17, he moved into retail sales where he completed a business management course. Jordan went on to become a manager of a nightclub before spotting an advert for an office temp with Driver Hire.
It was Jordan’s energy and drive that impressed Driver Hire and he was soon offered a permanent position. He had found his niche and has never looked back His nomination is well deserved.
Commenting on the commitment of this years’ finalists, bfa CEO, Pip Wilkins said, “The standard of this year’s applicants has been outstanding. We have seen incredible displays of commitment, dedication and passion across a multitude of sectors throughout the franchise industry”.
Hosted by the British Franchise Association and supported by long-term sponsors, HSBC, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards 2021 will take place at the Vox, Birmingham, on November 30.
