The highest level of bfa membership, it's a stature reserved only for those franchisors that have demonstrated a successful trading, financial and franchising record over an extended period of time. The accreditation process also includes an examination of franchisee performance and the opportunity for confidential feedback.
Kelly Blackmore-Lee, head of compliance and finance for the bfa, said: "The attainment of Full Membership is a testament to the long-term investment in ethical franchising shown by Oven Wizards. Mark and John have worked hard to develop their network according to high standards and in support of their Franchisees. We look forward to working with them as that development continues."
The news comes as Oven Wizards builds on a record-breaking year. Demand for Franchisees' services was at its highest-ever level in the last 12 months, with December especially busy for the network. Managing director, John Graham said that demand has extended into January in what has been an excellent start to 2016 for the company.
He commented: "Becoming a full member of the bfa is fantastic news for Oven Wizards. This is a further acknowledgement by the bfa that the work we have been doing behind the scenes to ensure new and existing franchisees have the best possible support to run their own successful oven cleaning businesses, is paying dividends. We take great pride in helping our franchisees grow their own businesses, under the Oven Wizards brand name, in their chosen Territories”
The bfa is the 'voice of ethical franchising in the UK' and as such has strict and extensive criteria for companies wishing to become accredited to pass, before they can become members.
Graham concluded: "It is great to have achieved “full” membership status in such a relatively short period of time. We look forward to sharing our successful business ethos with even more new recruits to our community, as the Oven Wizards brand becomes even stronger.”
