About this award
Introducing the Franchise Awards
Franchises are a shining light within local economies across the world. They stand as excellent and exciting gateways for entrepreneurs to begin their business journeys, with the foundations already set by the dedicated franchisors. With cultures that tend to grow and rise to meet the needs and demands of the consumers, the franchise industry truly shows no signs of slowing down.
As such, the 2019 Franchise Awards will return for the second year to again showcase the very best in this industrious industry. Corporate Vision wants to do more than just celebrate the accomplishments of the leading franchisees, but to also celebrate the franchisors who make these opportunities available.
The 2019 Franchise Awards will recognise those who make all these opportunities possible, from the dedicated recruitment pioneers, to those who make everything financially possible. Everyone who makes this industry tick will be considered, and those who provide trailblazing services will be in-line to receive one of our illustrious and industry-recognised awards.
Our Awards stand as a unique opportunity for franchisees, franchisors, and the associated support services to have their dedication to the industry spotlighted and recognised. Our awards are open to all firms across the industry, regardless of size or region. Nominated by clients, peer and fellow professionals, voted for by our readers and agreed by our industry experts, the 2019 Franchise Awards provide a comprehensive go-to resource for those seeking the truly outstanding enterprises from across the world.

Nominating parties are invited to put forward either third-party businesses whom they hold in high regard, or their own organisation.
All nominees are formally requested to accept their nomination. Should any firm or individual rather decline at this point, they are simply taken out of the running.
Nominees who formally accept their nomination are given the opportunity to submit additional materials in support of their initial nomination. Although there is no obligation to supply material, we have found that many nominees value this stage in the process as much as our research team.

Our dedicated research team will assess all material submitted by the nominee in order to determine winners based on merit, not popularity. The team also gather information independently from a variety of publicly accessible sources.
Ultimately, the research team casts their judgment based on various criteria, including:

- Business growth
- Online reputation
- Customer feedback
- Business performance
Once winners are determined, they are personally notified before any public announcement is made, allowing time for any communications throughout the wider business and the coordination of marketing strategies.
