We've won in the Service Provider of the Year category at the National NatWest EWiF Awards 2020!
Every year, EWiF holds an annual award’s ceremony designed to celebrate the achievements of women in franchising. This year, the awards took place online, bringing together over 150 franchise professionals in celebration of the successes of women across the UK, in an industry which had been very much dominated by men.
“The rise in the number of women who are breaking into franchising, and carving out their own businesses in this industry, is such a joy to see! We have been encouraging women to consider franchising as a route for business success since 2008, and are honoured to be able to award Platinum Wave for their contribution to franchising!” said Helen Mansfield, Managing Director of EWiF.
EWiF is a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, providing advice and guidance to anyone looking to break into the franchise industry. Their remit is threefold: to encourage women to consider buying a franchise, to encourage businesswomen to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their network. EWiF focuses their time and energy on supporting women who are looking for a route into the franchise industry. With regional meetings, an annual awards ceremony, annual conferences and much more taking place for their members, EWiF has become a valuable community and source of information for so many people.
It's been a challenging year for everyone, but we are proud to have been able to support our clients and the franchise community wherever possible, to help our industry come out on the other side stronger than ever. We've been busy throughout lockdown to help our clients remain flexible in their approach whilst supporting new initiatives and strategies for success. Our weekly Franchise Advisory Board call and online community group has also been a great source of inspiration, guidance and support for franchisors across the UK.
Let's stay agile and we will get through this together!
