Proving age is just a number!

Richard Swayne, one of the youngest franchisees in the Snap-on network, has just been shortlisted for the bfa Young Franchisee of the Year Award. Richard started working for Snap-on as an employee of an existing franchisee. 18 months later, in 2014, he took over the franchise and hasn’t looked back since.

The bfa Franchisee of the Year awards are designed to showcase the best franchisees in networks both large and small across every sector. The awards highlight the achievements of franchisees and demonstrate what really makes them stand out from the crowd.

At the age of just 26 and only one year into his business, Richard has achieved many accolades already and doesn’t have any plans to stop soon.

Richard, who was the number 1 franchisee for sales in 2014, consistently reaches sales of almost twice the national average. He is already number 2 for sales in 2015, has paid off his initial business loan of almost £50,000 and has even expanded into his second territory. It’s clear that Richard is more than worthy of being shortlisted for his award.

We were blown away by the way Richard has run head first into his business and just hasn’t stopped! After seeing the heights he’s reached in his first year of business, who knows what he’ll do in the next couple of years!” says Lisa Law, Snap-on’s National Franchise Manager.

Being shortlisted for this award will not only benefit Richard’s business but the whole franchise network. It gives franchisees more recognition and the credibility of being part of an award-winning brand.
