Michelle Collins, owner of Pink Spaghetti PA Services Chester and North Wales, has returned from the Approved Franchise Association Awards night triumphant, as the proud winner of the Franchisee of the Year award.
The AFA was set up in 2012 to support the rapidly growing UK Franchise Industry.
Their aim is to help grow and support the franchise industry in the UK by providing accreditation and membership to franchises of every size, and this year marked the inaugural annual conference and awards.
Michelle was thrilled to find out in July that she had been nominated for the Franchisee of the Year award, and travelled to Milton Keynes on Thursday, September 19 for the awards ceremony.
Michelle said: “I have been running Pink Spaghetti Chester & North Wales for the past five years, and have many happy customers who needed the 25th hour in the day my team and I provide.
“Providing an efficient service to satisfied customers is, of course, its own reward, but it’s always nice to be recognised for what you do, so I’m thrilled to be coming home with this award.”
Michelle is going to have to make a space in her trophy cabinet as she is no stranger to winning industry awards. She is a Small Business Saturday #SmallBiz100 Alumni, and is the current Pink Spaghetti Franchisee of the Year. She has also won the Pink Spaghetti ‘People’s Choice’ award, as she is always willing to share her expertise, and is highly regarded within the nationwide Pink Spaghetti network.
Michelle understands her strengths, and is a capable businesswoman who regularly seeks opportunities to develop both her own skills as well as those of her team.
These are some of the strengths which won her the award. A spokesman for the AFA said: “The standard of application was so high and many awards so close.”
