The EF100, established in 2017 in association with HSBC, is the franchising list to watch. It recognises the sector’s brightest businesses and ranks them according to a broad range of criteria; from their financial performance and heritage to their contribution to the community and the way they embrace innovation.
The franchise industry contributes over £17billion to the UK economy and more than 700,000 people are employed in franchising across the country. Despite a difficult and ever-changing economic climate, the last 12 months has seen franchise brands like Poppies survive and thrive thanks to their robust infrastructure and proven business models.
“We feel that Poppies has truly earned their place in the Elite Franchise Top 100 list,” said Scott English, Brand Director of Elite Franchise. “This definitive Top 100 ranking exemplifies the very best of franchisors in the UK. Each year, the ranking becomes more competitive, and this year has been no exception for our panel of industry-leading judges."
“During judging, we take into account entrants’ sales and growth figures as well as the training and support systems in place for their network of franchisees. This year, brands were also judged on any measures they initiated to survive the damaging aftereffects of the pandemic, along with how they would continue to grow their brand during the current financial crisis. Achieving this top 75 is a testament to all that Poppies has achieved over the past year,” added Anita Roberts, Franchise Director at HSBC UK.
“I am thrilled for Poppies to have made it into the EF100 for the 4th year running. It has been a year of successes with some of our franchise partners having record growth periods within 2022, receiving this EF100 award tops off the year. We are looking forward to 2023 being a really exciting year for Poppies.” Said Chris Wootton Poppies UK Owner.
The team at Poppies is proud to not only provide an exemplary cleaning service for its clients but now be named as an award-winning business opportunity for ambitious entrepreneurs too.

The fact that you’re coming into a franchise means you’ve got the support there already from the network. We’ve gone through foot and mouth, recessions, COVID, and we’re still going, protecting our staff and lifestyle. It’s a very robust model. North.Andrew Wishart, Poppies
Poppies has helped me develop new skills that I never had before. But the thing about Poppies is that you are making a difference to people’s lives – it seemed to me there was very little chance I could fail with the support I would have.
