Auditel builds on success with latest set of high-quality franchisees
Award for best practices
Auditel is riding high again after being nominated for this year's Franchisee Support Award for a second year. Sponsored by HSBC, the award recognises the best practice in the franchising industry today and Auditel's success coincides with them taking on four new franchisees as part of its latest recruitment intake. The HSBC judges commented on Auditel having the best business model, with excellent future proofing and a strongly ethical approach.
Auditel has made it to the finals of the HSBC Franchising awards for the past three years. The company is the lastest consultancy specialising in cost management, purchasing and supplier management. Auditel continues to attract increasing interest in management professionals who are seeking self-employment through the franchising model.
Rob Andrew, one of the four newest entrepreneurs, has a background in IT & telecoms business development. He explained that he researched the franchising market carefully before making his decision, believing Auditel to have the strongest, most ethical and most 'future proofed' business model, which was backed up by a firmly robust infrastructure.
Alex Chewins joins Rob in the newest group, and was previously running a property management business. Geoff Dale joints from a former business development background for a national point of sale software provider, and Ian Hopping joins Auditel too from a variety of self-employed positions, including time spent working as the Marketing Director for a chain of convenience stores.
According to a survey carried out in 2011 by Natwest and the British Franchise Accosiation, the franchising model is becoming ever more attractive to those keen to run their own business. Crucially too, 90% of franchisees, remain profitable. For Auditel, many potential franchisees are keen to invest in the franchise because the company has enjoyed Full Membership status for some years. The BFA explains that this membership can give real confidence to prospective investors, customers and stakeholders alike. Member franchises effectively put their business forward for careful, in-depth scrutiny - which signals their commitment to providing sustainable and ethical business models.
Edware Brewer, the Franchise Development Director at Auditel explains that the company's training package, along with ongoing development and support, is crucial to Auditel's success, and the franchise is delighted to have been recognised for the third year. Brewer adds that many of their franchisees are already enjoying lifestyles they had previously just dreamt of. The message from Auditel remains - if you're a professional from a management background and looking for a new career, why not look into Auditel?
