Radfield Home Care wins BFA Emerging Franchisor of the Year Award 2019
Radfield Home Care franchising was announced as the winner of the British Franchise Association’s Emerging Franchisor of the Year 2019 Award. Specialising in private care at-home services for the UK’s ageing population, Radfield was selected by the judges due to its franchise support systems, ethical business model and community involvement - beating numerous franchise brands, both home care and non-home care.
Founder and Franchisor, Dr Hannah MacKechnie was delighted to receive this major franchising award: “I am so proud that Radfield has been recognised at the UK’s most prestigious franchising awards! When we began franchising just two and a half years ago, we knew we had spent the time over the past eight years to develop a strong, rewarding and successful opportunity for franchise partners - but this recognition is the icing on the cake and acts as a seal of approval for our current and future franchise partners.
“This would not have been possible without our fantastic support team that helps make our franchise partners’ goals a reality. They are all experts in their field and have the experience, knowledge and expertise to guide our franchise partners to success. With this prestigious industry award and ongoing investment, we look forward to supporting more franchise partners in the coming months!”
In order to be shortlisted for the award, Radfield Home Care’s franchise model went through rigorous rounds of judging, to be narrowed down to one of three finalists. During this process, HSBC’s Head of Franchising and awards judge, Andrew Brattesani said: “Radfield Home Care is a great example of how a business can scale up and help the community. Run for over 30 years as a small business before becoming a franchise, the company started franchising in 2016 and has scaled up with the customer at its heart.”
With franchise partners currently operating across the UK, Hannah and her brother and co-founder, Alex spent eight years developing Radfield’s award-winning home care business model. As a result, the model was rigorously tried and tested prior to launch in late 2016. Before developing Radfield Home Care, the siblings grew up and worked within the residential care home owned and operated by their parents, and Hannah went on to become a qualified and experienced GP - providing them both with a lifetime of extensive healthcare knowledge to share with franchise partners.
