Agency Express ranked 30th in the prestigious Elite Franchise 100

Agency Express are delighted to announce that we have been celebrated in the Elite Franchise Top 100 (EF100) esteemed league table.

From hundreds of entries across every franchise sector, Agency Express has been ranked 30th in the prestigious EF100 – a title which will be held for the duration of 2022.

The EF100, established in 2017 in association with HSBC, is the franchising list to watch. It recognises the sector’s brightest businesses and ranks them according to a broad range of criteria; from their financial performance and heritage, to their contribution to the community and the way they embrace innovation.

The franchise industry contributes over £17 billion to the UK economy and more than 700,000 people are employed in franchising across the country. Despite a difficult economic climate, the last 12 months has seen franchise brands survive and thrive thanks to their robust infrastructures and proven business models.

The EF100 multi-disciplinary panel of judges commented:

We feel that Agency Express has well and truly earned their place in the Elite Franchise Top 100 list,” said Scott English, Brand Director of Elite Franchise. “This definitive league table of the Top 100 Franchisors shows just what Britain has to offer. Each year, the ranking becomes more competitive and this year has been no exception for our panel of industry-leading judges.

The Elite Franchise EF100 team added,

At EF100 we take into account entrants’ sales and growth figures as well as the training and support systems in place for their network of franchisees. This year, brands were also judged on any measures they initiated to survive the challenges of 2021, along with ambitions and growth targets for the next financial year. Achieving this position is a testament to all that Agency Express has achieved – they have consistently demonstrated a gold-standard level of franchising.

Ben Brookes, Agency Express Managing Director said:

Following another rollercoaster year for UK businesses, Agency Express is very proud to not only of the exemplary service we provide to our clients and franchisees, but also to be named as an award-winning business opportunity by EF100. To be featured within the EF100’s top 30 franchises in the UK, and to be noted as ‘one to watch’ is a humbling and rewarding end to the 2021. The EF100 represents true excellence in our diverse and resilient business community, and we look forward to being featured again next year.
