Lee Brimecombe and Paul Nebbett of in-toto Exeter have been named finalists for the ‘B2B Franchisee of the Year’ award.
in-toto has been a successful kitchen studio in Exeter for 22 years. As well as operating as a retail kitchen showroom to consumers, in-toto Exeter has also nurtured strong relationships with the building industry and local businesses to create a very successful ‘contracts’ arm of the business too.
Cathryn Hayes of the bfa, who chairs the judging panel, commented: “This is welcome recognition of outstanding business people who have harnessed the support found in ethical franchising to achieve their self-employment goals.”
Sean Hammon of Express Newspapers said: “We’ve seen the standard of entrants for these awards continually rise and this year is no exception. Franchising has never been in better health and these business owners are shining examples of what’s possible within the sector, rightly acknowledged for their dedication, acumen and results.”
Finalists will present to a judging panel of franchising experts on 15 & 16 July 2015, with the winners announced at a black-tie dinner on Thursday 1 October at Birmingham Town Hall.
The prestigious bfa Awards have six categories in total, and one of the six category winners will be named overall bfa HSBC Franchisee of the Year 2015, which comes with £10,000 in prize money from HSBC, as well as significant prestige. Each category winner takes home £1,000.
Congratulations to everyone at in-toto Exeter for their superb work in being nominated for such a prestigious award, and we wish you the best of luck in bringing the much-deserved award home.
