As a finalist Driver Hire is up against two other franchised businesses in the category for: Best Franchise - £25k - £75k investment level.
The shortlisted franchisors were selected based on feedback from thousands of actual franchisees, gathered through an industry-wide study of franchisee satisfaction.
The Franchise Satisfaction Benchmark survey, carried out by Smith & Henderson, invites franchisees to anonymously complete the survey and rate the training and support provided by their franchisor, the franchise system and their overall franchise ownership experience.
The top rated franchisors are then shortlisted and invited to present before a judging panel before the winners can be announced on 27th November at the Best Franchise Conference in Milton Keynes.
David Williams, Director Franchising at RBS England & Wales said: "The Best Franchise awards bring together some of the UK's finest franchisors and celebrates their success and the opportunities available for franchisees.
"With increasing numbers of new business start-ups following the franchise route it is vital for franchisors to make their business model stand out and set high standards for the implementation of the franchise. The finalists shortlisted have all set themselves apart from the competition and we are delighted to be part of the awards and congratulate all the finalists."
Graham Duckworth, Franchise Sales Director at Driver Hire adds, “As an established franchise with a proven business model that has been operating since 1987, it’s great news to hear Driver Hire’s ongoing work to support, train and develop our franchised network is recognised and appreciated by our franchisees.
"By working together we’ve seen some great results for the network and in particular over the last 12 months, where turnover records have been broken. Our nomination is a fitting thank you to everyone involved.”
