Hundreds of nominations were received across eight categories of excellence with activ claiming the top honours with a Gold Award for New Franchisor of the Year and Gold Award for Marketing Excellence, as well as claiming Bronze Award recognition for Best Adaptation to Change.
Managing Director Katie Bullon was delighted to receive the awards, “To be recognised as a new franchisor within such an established industry at an uncertain time, where many people are seeking franchisee opportunities , is really exciting.
“Myself and my team have worked really hard for the past two years since I became the franchisor of activ to ensure the company is a really attractive franchise to make running a successful business easy for budding entrepreneurs,” she added.
“These awards are particularly significant because they include the whole franchising community and we were in successful company within our categories.”
“We firmly believe that franchising is a fantastic opportunity for those in business to expand and grow whilst maintaining the freedoms that come from being your own boss, however, having that team support from the franchisor I believe creates the best of both worlds of self-employed and employed.”
“I bought the business after being a successful franchisee, so I’m passionate about offering a low cost option for businesses with myself as a mentor, knowing what makes a successful franchisee.”
The Marketing Excellence Award recognises exceptional franchising marketing skills, whilst the Best New Franchisor of the Year Award recognises New Managing Director Katie Bullon’s huge efforts since she took over the activ franchise in 2021.
“Since I acquired the company I have worked hard to recruit a talented team at Head Office who have all the required experience and skills to drive the business forward.” added Bullon
More and more small businesses are requiring digital marketing support and activ are fast becoming a go too Plug-In Marketing Box for those wanting to develop and grow their business in the future.
Bullon is preparing for an equally successful rest of the year, “We are prepared for many people to seek franchising opportunities this year and look forward to welcoming a new wave of franchisees in 2023.”
