2019 Awards Eveningby Janine, Feb 2019
This Saturday, we hosted our 2019 awards dinner at The Hilton Metropole in Birmingham. This is an annual event we organise for the purpose of celebrating the success of the previous year and to create an opportunity for networking amongst the franchisees in a more fun, less formal way! After all, we doesn’t prefer a 6pm champagne reception to a 6am coffee morning?
With over 70% of the network in attendance, it was a busy night! We had a a presentation, a quiz, a prize draw, a live band, a 3 course meal, a few too many bottles of vino flowing… and of course, the awards themselves!
This year, there were 7 awards up for grabs including Best Newcomer, Best Conversion, Best Retention and Highest Growth – culminating in the big one – Best Franchise. We also gave out two Director’s Special Awards, which are designed to recognise a franchisee who has contributed to the overall success of the company in someway.
And the winners were…

What a wonderful evening it was. Part of what makes being a Well Polished franchisee so wonderful is the incredible support network of other franchisees. The delight of others for the success of their peers is testament to the strong bond formed & the positive, ‘build each other up’ attitude that all our franchisees display time & time again.
