Tutor Doctor has been shortlisted in the Franchisor of the Year category of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards.
Tutor Doctor is the fastest growing in-home tutoring franchise in the world. Their franchisees manage a team of tutors and work closely with families to identify the needs of students. As a successful business owner at the heart of the local community, franchisees help children to achieve their potential and change lives for the better.
Known as the ‘Oscars’ of the franchising industry and set to take place on 24 November in Birmingham, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards evening is the flagship event in the franchising calendar and finalists are definitely ones to watch.
This year saw a record number of entries submitted across all categories, leading to an overall increase versus 2021. Despite what continues to be challenging times for most independent businesses, the franchising sector has shown strength and resilience. As a result, many bfa members have reported strong financial performance and continue to build strong, healthy networks.
Tutor Doctor will be battling it out against six other franchise brands to take home the coveted Franchisor of the Year accolade.
Becoming a finalist in this category is recognition of strong ethical franchising credentials and a commitment to franchising. It serves as a marker of success for any franchise, proving the business is working in a structured and well balanced way to serve the best interests of franchisees, head office staff and consumers.
Commenting on this year’s awards, Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association, said:
“To be announced as a finalist for this award is a huge achievement and a real testament to any brand’s hard work and determination. Each year, these awards let us show franchisors that we’ve noticed their efforts, we’ve recognised their dedication and resilience and we are thankful for their commitment. A big congratulations to the whole Tutor Doctor team.”
Gillian Morris, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said:
“The annual awards are a celebration of the achievements of the franchise sector, as well as the high standards of the finalists, their innovation and resilience demonstrated over the past year. We look forward to celebrating success with Tutor Doctor and their team.”
Frank Milner, President of Tutor Doctor, said:
“Since our launch in the UK in 2009, we have strived to the best. And this shortlisting is great recognition of that. Over the course of the last 15 years, the brand has changed in many ways, including a total rebrand and a pivot to a hybrid service offering, but there’s two things that have remained the same – our mission and values. Now, to be recognised for it in all its glory is a very proud moment indeed.”
