Further award success for Mac Tools
Continuing its impressive record in franchise awards success, Mac Tools has finished the year with further recognition for the strength of its franchise model and the support provided to franchisees.
Last year we were proud to be named the best van-based franchise in the UK at the Best Franchise Awards, based on anonymous feedback from thousands of franchisees across the UK.
This year Mac came up just short of being the first company to retain the title after finishing runner-up in the 2018 awards.
That was followed last week by Mac Tools rising to number 20 on the annual Elite Franchise Top 100 rankings, which grades franchisors based on their growth, support and franchisees’ financial success. Mac Tools rose from number 34 on last year’s equivalent EF100, reflecting a strong year of development for the business.
Franchise Manager Lesley Cobb said: “It’s great for the team here to be recognised for their passion and tireless effort in helping franchisees succeed. We’d have loved to win the Best Van Franchise award again, but finishing second after our triumph last year is a wonderful achievement.
“The award is unique because it’s based mainly on the opinions of franchisees, collected anonymously and directly from the business owners themselves. To have been a winner and runner-up in consecutive years is very special and I think it reflects the difference that our team makes to our franchise.
“We’re also thrilled to have jumped up on the EF100 rankings. Mac was placed ahead of some of the biggest brands in UK franchising thanks to a year which has seen us strengthen our support team, develop our technology and increasingly involve franchisees in both network and product development.
Mac Tools was also named as a finalist this year at the sector’s most prestigious accolades, the British Franchise Association HSBC Franchise Awards, for its innovation.
Lesley added: “In our 80th year in business, we’ve shown that we remain at the forefront of not only the automotive industry, but the franchise sector too. We’re proud to be one of the country’s best choices for aspiring business owners looking to change their future through franchising.”
