Baby and toddler swimming franchise Turtle Tots was delighted to win the Rising Star of the Year Award, and Franchisee Outstanding Achievement Award at the recent prestigious HSBC Elite Franchise Top 100 awards in London, having been included in the Elite Top 100 franchises list for seven consecutive years.

The Rising Star award was given to the franchise that jumped the highest up the Elite 100 Franchise list, and franchisee Sam Taker who runs Turtle Tots Staffordshire brought the room to their feet after a video of her personal challenges and subsequent business success was shown.

The Elite Franchise TOP 100 UK Awards is Britain’s definitive official list celebrating excellence in the franchise community. Franchises are judged on eight core criteria by an independent panel of top judges in the franchise sector, who score the full top 100 list.

Caroline Sparks, Co-Founder of Turtle Tots commented “We were over the moon that Turtle Tots was recognised with these two awards, particularly with so many well-known and respected franchise brands included in the list. We are particularly proud that our franchisee Sam won, who joined us less than a year ago and is breaking our network records”.
