The BFA (British Franchising Association) awards dinner and awards ceremony was held in June where Rainbow were one of the businesses shortlisted in the Franchisor of the Year category.
The evening was a great showcase for the franchising industry, which is worth £15.1 billion to the UK economy and was exceptionally well attended with 350 people attending the black tie dinner.
While the evening was a great success, Rainbow were disappointed not to receive the winners medal for their achievements in the Franchisor of the Year award, but did have our business showcased and were called onto the stage to receive their certificate for being shortlisted.
The final decision was, according to Pip Wilkins, Chief Executive of the BFA, very difficult and those shortlisted represented the very best in British Franchising. Rainbow was shortlisted down to a final 7 from a total of 901 franchised businesses across the UK. The Franchisor of the Year award for 2015 went to Water Babies.
