Nominees announced for European Franchising Federation Awards 

Franchising associations of various countries across Europe have put their nominees forward

The European Franchising Federation (EFF) has announced the nominees for the European Franchising Federation Awards, put forward by the brands’ respective national franchising associations. Sponsored by Global Franchise, these awards are the first of its kind by allowing national associations to put forward their own country award winners to be judged. 

“Our awards are all about acknowledging some of the excellent companies and leaders in this sector. It also supports our mission to truly build a community across franchising in Europe, bringing together franchisors, franchisees and industry leaders,” said Alisdair Gray, executive director of the EFF.
