Kris was one of 14 franchisees, nominated by their franchisors for their outstanding performance in running their businesses in 2022. The judges deemed Kris and his fellow winners to have 'not only withstood the challenges of COVID-19 but to have brought something extra to their role and sector in 2022.'
Franchise Manager Lisa Kimber said: 'The accolades just keep rolling in for Kris and rightfully so. He works incredibly hard and invests heavily in marketing and social media which have undoubtedly contributed to his success. In May last year, he won the 2022 Scottish Ex-Forces in Business Awards in the ‘New Service Leaver’ category which was also richly deserved. We are with Kris every step of the way on his franchising journey, advising him, encouraging him and giving him all the tools and information he needs to grow his business.'
Commenting on his win Kris said: 'It's wonderful - it's nice that all my hard work is paying off. I've been working extremely hard and I've had great support from my franchisor too.'

In October 2022, Wilkins Chimney Sweep broke through the £300,000 turnover barrier for the first time.
I liked the idea of working for myself doing something more hands on than I had been used to as an ex-surveyor. Franchising gave me professional backup, training and an established name to use.
WILKINS CHIMNEY SWEEP have been very supportive in providing both practical training, and also advice on how to run a business with accounting and tax information.
