The EWIF Awards honour and encourage the determination, hard work and amazing achievements of the female franchisees and franchisors of their industries.

Their network still continues to grow at a remarkable rate with a further 5 franchise units already signed for start-up this year.
Ginny has said she is thrilled to have received this award, commenting “we pride ourselves in always striving to do all we can for the business and all of our franchisees, we work hard and achieve amazing results, I am so pleased that this has been recognised”.
