Award Leisure not only promote equal opportunity for women in business, but we also rely on their expertise and knowhow to achieve our massive successes. So far in 2021 we are 40% up on sales compared to 2020, we have seen huge interest for the Award Leisure Franchise Opportunity with our new franchise coming on board within few weeks.
Who would have thought that a year ago when the world was turned upside down by COVID, that it would be possible for a business to successfully execute a plan for growth – BIG growth!
Jessica Anthony QFP has played a huge role in franchising the Award Leisure opportunity, with the support of her sister Charlotte Anthony.
Jessica’s role within the business over the last 12 months shows the progression possible for women in business. From a Franchise Development Manager to the General Manager of Award Leisure. The glass ceiling should no longer exist or be a stigma in business for females in today’s society, and at Award Leisure – it doesn’t exist!
‘’We are excited to be driving the business forward and being at the forefront of the business growth’’ - Charlotte Anthony.
At Award Leisure we have an employee ratio of 50% females. We encourage and empower women in our business and allow equal opportunities across all sectors. Women are essential to the success of our operation. We have equal % of both females and males in Management roles, that’s well over the UK average of 29% females holding a senior management position.

Studies have shown over the last 10 years that women have superior communication skills, are key net-workers and less prone to financial failure, which is a brilliant quality to have as a business owner. These are traits that are perfect for becoming a franchisee.
The percentage of women who own their own franchises has risen by 50% in the last 5 years…we want this to increase!
From the initial start-up, Award Leisure offered extensive support and training in all key factors of the business; sales, service, system. This includes one to one training with the National Sales Manager, a complete guide on how to use the CRM and Epos till system. We also shadowed experiences and qualified engineers to be shown how to complete an install and a thorough service of a hot tub.
’I love it! It’s the most fun I’ve had at work in the last 20 years.
Becoming an Award Leisure franchisee has made my business more efficient by using new systems and having a bigger network to work with. Having additional products in my portfolio allows me to retain relationships with my customers through the service plans I offer. I benefit from a national brand as the consumer interest has increased.
