With 2020 being such a turbulent year, a little celebration is something we could all use right now, and the AFA Awards is something that does just that!

The Awards ceremony celebrated achievement, development and ongoing growth of the franchising industry, harnessing the power of franchising in the UK. 

This year, we successfully drew the attention of the jury and were recognised in not one but four categories:

Franchisee of the Year – Golden Award

Area Development franchisee, Ivanka Obreshkova grabbed the golden awards in Franchisee of the Year category. Apparently, hard work does pay off! Being a true inspiration for the company and the whole franchise industry, from a working-on-the-field franchisee, Ivanka became one of the most successful Area Developers of the brand. Last year, she was shortlisted as a finalist in Inspirational Woman in Franchising 2020 category at the prestigious Nat West EWIF Awards.

Best Franchise Support – Silver Award 

Our fantastic franchise team took a prize in the Best Franchisee support category, which is a big appreciation for all the devotion and efforts we endlessly give out to our franchise partners. It’s an honour to be recognised by such a powerful organisation like the AFA. 

Franchise Leader of the Year – Silver Award 

Our co-founder Anton Skarlatov is a true visionary and natural leader. He believes in empowering innovation and inspires each of our franchisees every day. We’re lucky to have such a powerful leader from whom we can learn valuable lessons every day. If you want to read more about his journey of becoming the leader he’s today, see this interview
