Agency Express ranked top 50 in prestigious Elite Franchise 100
Agency Express are delighted to announce that we have once again been recognised as one of the UK’s top franchise opportunities, raking within the Top 50 of the Elite Franchise Top 100.
From hundreds of entries across every franchise sector, Agency Express has been ranked 31st in the prestigious EF100 – a title which will be held for the duration of 2023.
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 £17billion 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 like Agency Express 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.
Anita Roberts, Franchise Director at HSBC UK added:
During judging, we consider 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 damaging aftereffects of the pandemic, along with how they would continue to grow their brand during the current financial crisis. Securing a place in the top 50 is a testament to all that Agency Express has achieved over the past year.
Ben Brookes, Agency Express Managing Director said:
We are absolutely delighted to be recognised as one of the UK’s top franchise opportunities for a second consecutive year. To be featured within the EF100’s Top 50 Franchises is a rewarding end to the 2022. The EF100 represents true excellence in our diverse and resilient business community, and we look forward to being featured among the best of the best again in 2023.
