TAB is the world’s largest franchise system providing peer advisory boards and business coaching for business owners
The Alternative Board (TAB) has named Elliot Rich its Franchisee of the Year 2023.
The award was announced at TAB’s recent Annual Facilitator Conference for franchisees hosted at the Crowne Plaza in Leeds.
The conference brought together TAB franchisees from across the UK to celebrate the franchise’s stellar international growth while also sharing best practice and future ambitions. Elliot was selected as TAB’s Franchise of the Year 2023 having achieved phenomenal success with his York-based franchise, which has become the company’s highest earning territory in just six years.
Such has been the success of Elliot’s business that he has been joined by his wife Natalie to continue its expansion across the Yorkshire region. Natalie brings a wealth of corporate expertise to the franchise having previously worked for brands including Marks & Spencer, Hallmark Cards, Boost Drinks and BMW.
Ed Reid, TAB UK MD, presented Elliot with his Franchise of the Year award and said: “This award has been hard won by Elliot having fended off some extremely stiff competition from fellow TAB franchisees. Elliot stood out for us this year because of his hugely giving personality and approach to franchising. Elliot never misses an opportunity to learn or support others, he is continually embracing new developments in our sector and is often the first franchisee to try something new.
“It has been a joy to watch Elliot’s franchise grow over the past six years and, as two of his clients so warmly attested during our annual conference, his input is having a huge impact on Yorkshire-owned SMEs. Elliot’s success is the epitome of what can be achieved through our franchise model, and with Natalie now on the team, we are incredibly excited to witness his franchise’s next phase of growth.”
