The Global Franchise Awards 2021 reached over 500,000 industry members.



Christine Kelly, Founder & CEO of Little Kickers

Global Franchise Champion 2020

“Winning this award was a huge honour for Little Kickers. We’d won smaller, national awards before but had never won an international award where we were up against more established, international peers. The Global Franchise Awards brought Little Kickers to the attention of global organisations who have approached us about forming partnerships. It has cemented our position as a leading organisation in the international children’s activity franchising space and has led to many approaches by potential investor organisations in Europe and North America”
