Shortlisted for the Social Enterprise accolade, focusing on how a franchise system goes above and beyond to help a community, Swimtime UK has been nominated alongside some of the best in the franchising industry.
Speaking about the lead up to the awards, Swimtime franchisor Theo Milward, states:
“We’re incredibly excited for the awards evening in June. Being placed alongside some of the best in franchising. It’s a fantastic opportunity to get in a room with like-minded and driven people while celebrating each other’s achievements. “We look forward to seeing how we get on, win or lose it’s great to see the work Swimtime is doing is being recognised by such a large industry body as the bfa.” Since 1997, the bfa Franchise Awards has proven to hold franchising to a higher standard year on year, highlighting business that work ethically and in the best interests of franchisees and staff.

Swimtime UK will go face-to-face against two other franchise units in June, one that hosts arts and crafts classes for children, and another that provides healthy microwave meals to your door.
