The Quality Franchise Association Virtual Franchising Awards are the UK’s first virtual awards for

the franchising community. Running since 2021, they are back for a third year and we are

delighted to announce that Zoe Fearnley, Franchise owner of both Harmony at Home Somerset

and Bath, and Harmony at Home Gloucestershire and Bristol, has been shortlisted in this years

‘Franchisee of the Year’ Category.

The Franchisee of the Year Category recognises individual franchisees being an integral part of a

franchise network, helping the Franchise to build a strong brand and having a strong impact on

their reputation.

Zoe, who is herself, a Norland Nanny, began her franchising journey with Harmony at Home in

2018 when she purchased the Somerset and Bath Franchise. She has since grown her presence

in the South West by purchasing the Gloucestershire and Bristol branch in 2021. She now runs

two very successful branches from her home office, making positive and thriving placements for

clients and candidates alike, across Somerset and Gloucestershire.

Zoe’s clients and candidates regularly give fantastic feedback on her services, often noting her

fantastic skills at matching profiles and always putting the family’s needs at the forefront of her

search. Her candidates see her as a friendly and supportive recruiter who helps to guide them

through the processes required and matches them with families who best suit them.

On her shortlisting, Zoe says,

“It was an honour to be nominated for the National 2024 Quality

Franchise Association Virtual Franchise Awards and I am so proud to have reached the finals. I

am passionate about providing an excellent service to both my clients and candidates, getting to

know them and their individual needs and going above and beyond to make the process as

smooth as possible. I also offer to meet the families and candidates in person to build stronger

relationships with them and learn what their individual requirements are. Leaning on my 30+

years of experience within the childcare sector and the customer skills I have gained through my

career ensures they are in safe hands. Thank you to the Harmony at Home team for all their

support and to Frankie Gray for believing in me. Good luck to all the finalists in the awards.”

Harmony at Home Founder, Frankie Gray says, “I’m so incredibly proud and excited for Zoe who’s

grown from one franchise to two, significantly increasing her successful placements in doing so.

Her nomination and shortlisting for the Franchisee of the Year Award in the Virtual Franchising

Awards 2024 is incredibly exciting and so well deserved! Zoe is an invaluable member of our

network who proved to be hugely insightful and informative to all our franchisees, during our

recent ‘Fireside Chat’ at this years Harmony at Home Annual Conference. Zoe also passed our

Annual Audit with flying colours, proving her high level of understanding of our franchise business

and she continues to maintain her very high standards consistently. We are thrilled for Zoe and

love watching her business grow and develop with Harmony at Home. ”
