We're very pleased to announce that Lee Brimecombe and Paul Nebbett of in-toto Exeter have once again been shortlisted for a bfa Franchisee of the Year Award!

Lee and Paul impressed the judges in last year's awards, making it all the way to the 'B2B Franchisee of the Year' final, and have once again been named finalists in this category!


in-toto Exeter has been a successful kitchen studio in Exeter for 23 years, with Lee and Paul taking over the business from Gordon Bates (Lee’s Father-in-law) in 2015, and continuing to run it as a true family business, joined by Lee’s wife Joanne.

The team at in-toto Exeter has nurtured the strong relationships they have all built together, due to the contacts within the local building industry and client recommendations, and has created a successful family business, centred on great customer experience and design. As well as operating as a retail kitchen showroom to consumers (consistently ranking in the top 5 in in-toto ‘league’ year to date, out of all 49 studios), they also have a very successful ‘Contracts’ arm of the business, providing excellent service, design and installation of quality in-toto products to several developers and contractors in the area.  

The overall UK Franchisee of the Year 2016 will be named from one of the six category winners. All finalists will present their case to a panel of expert judges on 13th and 14th July, and the winner will be named at a black-tie ceremony on Thursday 29 September at Birmingham Town Hall.

Best of luck, Lee and Paul! We're sure you will do great!
