Right at Home UK swept the board at the BFA HSBC Franchise Awards last week, picking up three national accolades, including the Gold Franchisor of the Year Award.
This year saw the franchise sector’s two leading national awards presented at the same event – the British Franchise Association (BFA)’s annual conference – after their organisers launched a partnership earlier this year.
And after picking up the WorkBuzz Best Management Franchise Award in the morning, the celebrations continued at the gala dinner that evening, when the national support team collected the top-tier Gold Franchisor of the Year Award.
Right at Home was recognised for demonstrating resilience, upholding quality standards, committing significant investment and fostering a family-friendly ethos to achieve sustainable growth.
Pip Wilkins QFP, CEO of the British Franchise Association, said: “It was my absolute pleasure to crown Right at Home winners of this award. The Right at Home model is built, as they say, on trust, and the company understands that profitability only comes from being the best at what they do. A truly deserving winner, whose core values set them apart.’’
Right at Home UK’s CEO, Ken Deary, said: “To say I am proud would be an understatement. This award is a true testament to the hard work and dedication that has been demonstrated by the network over the last 12 months. This tremendous achievement is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to upholding franchising standards. It is wonderful to see that the brave steps we have taken to innovate and future-proof our network are receiving this recognition within the franchising industry.’’
Also at the event, Alistair Shanks, owner of Right at Home Guildford & Farnham and Right at Home Twickenham picked up the Local Focus Franchisee of the Year Award after going the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of staff, clients and members of his local community.
His win comes just two months after he took home the Home Care Initiative of the Year accolade at the Leaders in Care Awards.
