The Global Franchise Awards are all about recognizing excellence in the world of international franchising. Our definition of an “emerging franchise” is a brand that has established a total of between one and ten locations on foreign soil.
Car repair and restoration, car cleaning and lubes, auto and truck renting: if your expanding franchise deals with vehicles in any way or of any kind, then this category is for you.
Among franchises qualified to enter this category are pre-school care, play, kids' exercise and educational franchises, stage and other schools.
This category is open to all franchised food and drink-based concepts. We're looking for fast casuals, QSRs, full service restaurants, cafės, bakeries, ice cream and fro-yo parlors, donut retailers, coffee shops, saloons, pubs and sports bars.
We welcome entries from international gyms, work-out studios, martial arts and boxing clubs, dance studios and trampoline parks and similar franchises.
Entries are invited from internationally-expanding massage studios, spa treatments, nail or lash studios, hair care (male and female hair cutting, grooming and styling), weight control and other concepts which might be termed health or beauty.
Pet franchises, arts and crafts, dental and optical and travel, home tutoring: if your franchise isn't a fit with the other categories, it's probably a lifestyle franchise
Whether your speciality is elder care or home care, you can earn recognition for your international brand by entering these awards.
Entries welcomed from cleaning and janitorial, flooring, building, decorating and maintenance, fix-it franchises, garden and pool care, garage design, pest control, home inspectors, and other concepts which might conceivably be housed here.
This category should be used by franchises whose business is print, graphic or digital signs and franchised print shops and any other franchised communications businesses.
Category is open to accounting, advertising, tutoring, training, HR, buy and sell franchises, legal services, real estate and similar.
If you run a franchise that deals in IT and communications, computers, virtual office services, fintech, consumer electronics or internet cafes, then this is the category for you.
The supreme champion is the ultimate Global Franchise Award and is given to the category winner which has in the opinion of the magazine's editor and staff, done the most to distinguish itself in the field of franchising. If you enter any of the categories above, you will automatically be considered for this award, free of charge.
