Expense Reduction Analysts (ERA) has been named International Superbrand finalist at the upcoming British Franchise Association (bfa) HSBC British Franchise Awards.
Known as The Oscars of the franchising industry, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards evening is the flagship event in the franchising calendar, which will take place on 24 November at the Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham.
The awards will celebrate the best of the best in franchising, showcasing franchisors and franchisees alike who are committed to ethical franchising.
