Franchisor of the Year success for Agency Express

Agency Express are delighted to announce their silver success at the 2018 ‘bfa HSBC franchisor of the Year’ awards.

The multi award winning van-based franchise is the UK’s largest provider of professional estate agency board services, and via a network of 114 franchise operators they service and maintain over 51% of all UK estate agency boards – completing over 100,000 visits to properties every month.

Franchising for over two decades, Agency Express delivers world class support systems, proven business formulas and industry leading technology to franchisees. Which is why Agency Express have been judged as one of the top 3 franchises in the UK, alongside multinational franchise McDonalds who were presented with the coveted gold award.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the bfa and Andrew Brattesani, UK Head of Franchising for HSBC, said:

Winning a bfa HSBC Franchisor of the Year award is a massive achievement as it shows the company not only demonstrates operational excellence but supports the entire network and ensures franchisees have the training and development to reach their full potential. This award recognises the entirety of the business and McDonalds, Agency Express and Driver Hire Nationwide all really impressed us with their commitment, innovation and business acumen, many congratulations to all three of them on winning these awards.

Agency Express Managing Director Stephen Watson commented:

This revered award showcases the UK’s most exceptional franchises and to be recognised in the ‘Franchisor of the Year’ category for a second time in three years is an enormous accolade.

This award shines a spotlight on our ongoing commitment to the industry, our franchises and the advances we continue to make to ensure their wellbeing and success.
