The company, founded in 2004, has many accolades to its name, including winning the BFA HSBC Franchisor of the Year - Gold Award in 2022, the Workbuzz Best Management Franchise award and featuring in Elite Franchise magazine’s Top 25 British Franchises for the sixth consecutive year.

The BFA (British Franchise Association), is the hub of franchising in the UK. The association strives to brighten people’s futures by showcasing the opportunities for businesses and individuals to transform their lives through franchising, whilst also providing an educational space and accreditations, governed by their high standards and a code of ethics.

The awards often referred to as the Oscars of franchising were held at The Vox Conference Centre in Birmingham on November 9.

Commenting on their win Terry Mullen, managing director (Finance and Operations) at Revive! said: “We are so proud to win this award, it means a great deal to be recognised by the British Franchise Association for the work we have done to build a strong and positive culture across the whole Revive! network.

"Our focus on Leadership and Culture right at the start of our journey has enabled us to support our franchise owners to grow strong and successful businesses of their own.

"One of our values is Unity and across our head office team and our franchise owners, this value is evident every day. As we’ve grown, we’ve kept our values at the heart of everything we do and that has enabled our staff and our franchise owners to buy into the vision and join us on the journey.”

UK Head of Franchise, Commercial Banking at sponsors HSBC Bank Gillian Morris said: “The diversity of franchising on display at tonight’s awards ceremony – across so many brands and sectors – demonstrates the strength and reach of the industry.

"Choosing a winner is never easy and I’d like to join Pip in thanking everyone who entered and send our warm congratulations to Revive! on this very well-deserved award.”
