The Creation Station Scoops Best Franchise Award

6th December 2017

The Creation Station Scoops Best Franchise Award

smith+henderson have named the winners of the 2017 Best Franchise Awards, sponsored by Lloyds Bank. The announcement was made following their annual Best Franchise Conference.

The Best Franchise Awards are unique because they are based on the satisfaction of current franchisees. Franchisees are asked to rate their franchisor on everything from training and support, to shared goals and how the experience of being a franchisee has compared with their expectations. This genuine recommendation by existing franchisees is a powerful marketing tool for winners, as it demonstrates a genuine testimonial from people living and working within their brand every day.

The Creation Station won in the Best Franchise Children’s Services category.

Steven Frost, CEO of smith+henderson said:
"We would like to congratulate all the winners and finalists, recognised in the 2017 Best Franchise Awards, sponsored by Lloyds Bank. What makes these awards unique is they are based on feedback from the real experts, thousands of actual franchisees. In 2017, the quality of entrants was fantastic, with the vast majority of franchisees saying they would recommend their franchise to a prospective franchisee."

Sarah Cressall Founder and Managing Director of The Creation Station said:
"To gain this prestigious award is a real testament to our collaborative approach with our whole Creation Station family - our franchise owners and our Creative Hub head office team. We know that together we can create a greater positive impact to inspire imaginations and nurture creativity. I’m thrilled we’ve gained this award and I would like to thank smith+Henderson, Lloyds bank and all the judges for their support."

Sukhdeep Dehal, Franchise Development Manager of sponsors Lloyds Bank, said:
"Lloyds Bank are delighted to have supported smith+henderson with the Best Franchise Conference & Awards this year. As a member of the judging panel I have seen first-hand the calibre of franchisors When hearing the recount from The Creation Station it clearly demonstrated the impact franchisee feedback can have to the future ambitions of the business, culminating in their success in their category."
