Wilkins Chimney Sweep reaches finals of the Best Franchise Awards 2022

Franchise awards

Wilkins Chimney Sweep has been announced as one of three finalists in the ‘Business to Consumer’ category of the 2022 WorkBuzz Best Franchise Awards sponsored by Lloyds Bank.

Successful franchise

The awards are unusual, as it is the franchisees who vote the franchisor into place.

To be entered into the awards, Wilkins franchisees were invited to take part in an anonymous survey about their Wilkins Chimney Sweep franchise. Wilkins scored extremely highly.

British Franchise Association conference

The three highest sets of results, from all the franchises that took part, become the award finalists. The winners will be announced at the BFA conference on 24 November 2022 in Birmingham.

Happy franchisees

Lisa Kimber, franchise manager at Wilkins Chimney Sweep said: “We won this award in 2019 and were finalists again in 2021, a huge accolade in itself. This year our franchisees gave us a 97% overall satisfaction score, scoring us 100% in 18 out of the 27 questions asked including topics such as trust, head office support, peer support, the brand, proven system and respect and feeling valued.”

Franchises thriving

She continued: “We are delighted that not only do our franchisees think we’re great but we’ve made it into the finals too. Wilkins Chimney Sweep is an extremely successful, happy franchise, with franchisees building large, profitable, sustainable businesses to support them and their families. We work very hard to ensure they are happy and their businesses are thriving, so it’s really rewarding for the whole team to be recognised in this way. We’d like to thank WorkBuzz and look forward to seeing them at the finals.”

Resilient franchisors

Steven Frost, CEO and founder of WorkBuzz, said: “Following the pandemic we’ve seen franchising bounce back fast. These franchisors have demonstrated the resilience of their business models and shown great leadership. They should be proud of their accomplishments and I’m excited to see what they go on to achieve together with their franchisees.”
