We’re extremely proud to be the ONLY window cleaning franchise that are members of the British Franchise Association (BFA), the trade body and guardian of standards for UK franchising.
Membership is not acquired, but granted by the BFA only to franchisors that can evidence their professional standards, business systems and ethics criteria. It’s a rigorous process: we provided the BFA with various documents, including our standard Franchise Agreement, our company accounts and our business models, each of which has been scrutinised and approved.
Having been offered membership, there is then a significant financial contribution that My Window Cleaner has to make, each and every year. This demonstrates how serious we are in:
Ensuring that we run and operate our business in a professional and ethical manner, to the industry’s highest standards
Being fully committed to our franchise partners
Britain’s Best Emerging Franchise
In November 2020 My Window Cleaner was thrilled to be named Britain’s Best Emerging Franchise by the BFA and HSBC, ahead of other brands including Vodafone. This is the highest accolade possible for a new franchise brand.
The BFA describes the awards as “the flagship event in the franchising calendar, with nominees and winners proving the business works ethically and in the best interests of franchisees and staff”. Here’s what they and HSBC said about why we were recognised:
“There are more franchise systems than ever before, showing that businesses are choosing franchising as an ideal model for them. The fact My Window Cleaner managed to win this accolade, when so many new companies are entering into franchising, is a testament to the company’s values and culture.”
Pip Wilkins, CEO, British Franchise Association
“My Window Cleaner impressed the judges with its state-of-the-art IT system and innovation. It’s been a difficult year for all businesses, so we are pleased to see members of the franchise community thriving, having adapted to operate successfully despite the difficulties thrown their way.”
Andy Brattesani, UK Head of Franchising at HSBC
