Breaking Records with Caremark
Now that the NatWest Encouraging Women into Franchising (EWIF) Awards are over, we’re putting the spotlight on each of our award sponsors as we thank them for their hard work and commitment to the EWIF cause. This year, Caremark sponsored the Young Franchisee of the Year Award won by Claire Roberts from Magical Maths.
“Caremark Limited was delighted to sponsor the EWIF Young Woman in Franchising Award 2016. It is exciting to see an increasing number of female professionals who are keen to explore the franchising route, either to franchise their existing business or who are considering looking into franchising. With an increasing number of highly successful female franchisees in the Caremark network of offices, it is safe to say that more female professionals are interested in exploring the franchising route as a means to starting their business or to grow an existing one,” Mary Wardell, PR & Marketing Executive.
Claire is one of the youngest franchisees in the Caremark network and, before joining Magical Maths, she had no experience in business ownership. However, in her first year as a franchisee she has already broken the record for fastest franchisee to book 10 schools (it took Claire 10 days), fastest franchisee to book 20 schools (it took Claire 12 days) and the fastest franchisee to book 30 schools (it took Claire just 17 days!). Claire is no stranger to hard work and has pushed her business forwards with determination, making her more than worthy of winning the award.
Caremark are great supporters of the EWIF cause and continue to support women both at our awards and within their network.
“Franchising offers individuals great opportunities and we are thrilled to be supporting EWIF and encouraging the business women of the future to start their franchise journey. We were very impressed with the calibre of particular finalists. They all demonstrated a high level of innovation, passion for their business and entrepreneurial flair,”
“Sponsoring this award has given Caremark the opportunity to recognise and celebrate up-and-coming professional women within the industry and it is both a pleasure and a privilege to be part of EWIF and supporting the growth of women in franchising,”
EWIF’s primary focus is to support women who are looking for a route into the franchise industry. Our remit is threefold; to encourage women to consider buying a franchise, to encourage business women to franchise their existing operations and to help franchisors attract more women to their networks. We are a not-for-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, providing advice and guidance to anyone looking at trying to break into the franchise industry.
