Taking place on November 30 at the Vox, Birmingham, 10 categories will be contested, including three new ones: International Superbrand, the HSBC Best in Class Multi-unit Leader and Local Focus.

Local Focus and the HSBC Best in Class Multi-unit Leader awards are franchisee categories, the former focusing on businesses that have made a difference in their community and the latter for multi-unit franchisees either with the same brand or numerous companies.

Businesses don’t have to be bfa members for the franchisee to be entered into the multi-unit category.

International Superbrand focuses on brands that have been able to expand successfully outside their home country, while managing growth and increasing brand value.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the bfa, says: “Every year the quality of entries gets better and better as the industry continues to make new records.

“I’m certain that the awards will reflect how the industry continues to break barriers and I wish all those shortlisted the best of luck. Just to get to this stage is a humongous achievement.”

Andrew Brattesani, HSBC’s head of UK franchising, says: “With so many franchise systems entering and showing how they have excelled, anyone getting to the final should be exceptionally proud.

“We were looking for businesses that have driven innovation and continue to adapt their model and what we received was actually beyond our expectations. This year could well be the best yet.”
