The Global Franchise Awards were launched and are run by the Global Franchise magazine team. They aim to celebrate the brands that are working hardest to advance the cause of international franchising.

Global Franchise aims to recognize excellence within the field of international franchising, and we do this using four values:

  1. Has truly global intentions. Whether or not this franchise is established in many countries at the moment is not the point – we want to see whether this franchise plans to go global, in a sustainable, ethical way.
  2. A great relationship between franchisor and franchisee. Regardless of whether a brand is global, what underpins any good franchise business is the level of communication between franchisor and franchisee. The support systems not to be impeccable, especially during the coronavirus crisis.
  3. Will have an innovative marketing and promotions plan. We want to hear about what your promotions plan for 2021 looked like. Tell us about your promotions online and in print, and provide details of your social media channels.
  4. Has advanced the cause of international franchising. From exhibiting at shows, joining organizations and giving speeches at events, we want to know about your company’s extracurricular activities in this sector.
