ActionCOACH is the world’s number one business coaching franchise, with more than 1,000 offices in 40 countries. Founded in 1993 in Australia by Brad Sugars and established in the UK in 2002, ActionCOACH’s business coaching is based on tried and tested systems that increase profit, improve time management and create better performing teams. It’s used on over 10,000 businesses every month with huge success worldwide.
The shortlisted franchisors were selected based on feedback from over 2,000 franchisees gathered through an industry-wide study of franchisee satisfaction. Richard Holden, head of franchising at Lloyds TSB Commercial and sponsors of the awards initiative, says:
“We are delighted to support The Best Franchise Awards which recognise outstanding franchisors and help to drive up industry standards. The UK franchise market continues to display strong growth, reflected in the shortlisted nominees, and plays a vital part to the UK economy. We’d like to wish all the finalists the best of luck.”
Most businesses excel at their trade or profession, but that doesn’t mean they’re great at the ‘business of business’. So, in reality less than 10% of businesses survive the first 10 years of operation which is why ActionCOACH’s business follows such an exponential growth pattern.
“We are pleased that we have been shortlisted for the Best Franchise Award in the Large Franchise Category, which will help to raise the profile of Action Business Coaches and prompt more high calibre people to take a look at the ActionCOACH franchise opportunity. To be a finalist alongside McDonald’s and TaxAssist is a tremendous achievement only 10 years since our first UK ActionCOACH franchise partner started their business and I would like to thank all of our team for their skilled input, which has won this deserved recognition,” says Ian Christelow, UK managing director of ActionCOACH.
The winners of the awards will be announced at the end of November, at The Best Franchise Conference in Oxfordshire. ActionCOACH currently has a network of over 90 coaches in an industry that is growing by 40% a year with some of our coaches achieving turnovers of £40,000 per month and a net operating profit of 70%.
