GutterPRO nominated for franchising award

GutterPRO has been shortlisted in the ‘emerging franchisor’ category at the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards, to be held at the Vox, Birmingham, on 30 November.

‘Safe and sound we do it from ground’ is the mantra of GutterPRO, using vacuum systems to clear the gutters of clients both domestic and commercial - founded in 2015 and based on an embryonic operation starting in 2013.

Tony Rafferty, director at GutterPRO, said: “Being recognised as a finalist in ‘emerging franchisor of the year’ is recognition of the innovation and efforts of the HQ team and the network of franchise partners.”

Pip Wilkins QFP, CEO of the British Franchising Association, said: “In little over three years, GutterPRO has now grown to have 56 territories, with 43 franchisees in the network. Because of this, head office continues to scale up and the network has continued to show significant year-on-year growth.”

Andrew Brattesani, head of franchising, HSBC, said: “Numbers, for most people, are dull, but GutterPRO uses gamification to see how you are doing against the top performing franchisee, so you have something to strive for. Something so simple can make such a difference. Furthermore, there is a tried and tested marketing strategy to really help franchisees get their name out there.”
