David Tuck, Franchise Sales Manager at Venture Marketing Group, commented: “The Franchise Marketing Awards are important in that they recognise the creativity of companies and individuals who gain the attention of the world through innovative marketing in our dynamic and fast growing industry, something that probably would go unnoticed if it wasn’t for these awards.”
“The standard of entries this year has surpassed all expectations, so much so that the judges have introduced special commendations in some categories. Congratulations to all those who were finalists, those who received special commendations, and particularly the winners!”
The Franchise Marketing Awards are held in association with The Daily Mail, sponsored by Lloyds TSB, and supported by the British Franchise Association (bfa).
