Ripples has been named as one of the UK’s top franchise businesses in the HSBC Elite Franchise Top 100 awards (HSBC EF100). Shortlisted from hundreds of entries spanning multiple franchise sectors, Ripples has been ranked with an overall position of 93, a title it will hold for the duration of 2022.
Established in 2017, the HSBC EF100 recognises the sector’s brightest businesses and ranks them according to a broad range of criteria; from heritage and financial performance, to their contribution to the community and the way they embrace innovation. This year’s list features many top franchise names including Vodafone, CeX and Subway.
Scott English, brand director of Elite Franchise said: “We feel that Ripples has well and truly earned its place in the Elite Franchise Top 100 list. This definitive league table of the Top 100 Franchisors shows just what Britain has to offer. Each year, the ranking becomes more competitive and this year has been no exception for our panel of industry-leading judges.”
Paul Crow, MD of Ripples, commented: “We are delighted to rank in the award’s Top 100 on our first time of entering. We worked alongside our franchise partners throughout 2020 and 2021 to rapidly evolve and develop the business to cope with a challenging environment, doing so with great success. Not only have we increased sales for our existing network but we’ve also increased the number of businesses within our group with the opening of brand-new showrooms. This prestigious acknowledgment caps of a great year for the whole Ripples team and we are proud to be recognised as an award-winning business opportunity for ambitious entrepreneurs too."
