Franchisor, co-founder and director of Screen Rescue, Amanda Hilario said, “We are absolutely over the moon with our surprise GOLD win at the VFA23 Awards announced on 31st January. We are so proud to be part of these awards and for the second year running we have collected podium place for ‘Best Franchisee Support’ swapping our last year’s SILVER Award with a GOLD Award in this year’s coveted VFA23 Awards.
“This year the entry level for each category was higher than ever before and so this is such an honour for us; it’s a win we really did not expect because we were short-listed amongst such a cohort of respected brands. So much so, there was no winner’s announcement at the ready, indeed, it has been business as usual with us putting our growing network of franchisees’ needs first, so admittedly we are a little behind in making this fabulous announcement!”
Franchisor, co-founder and director, Jaime Hilario added, “We have such a fantastic franchisee support team, all of which work tirelessly behind the scenes delivering support measures that enable our franchisees to keep a finger on the pulse of their businesses right from the start.
“Our GOLD Award-Winner support starts from day one of your franchise enquiry, so why not contact us to find out more about how we can help you into business and offer you a pathway where you will never walk alone. Just as high-flying franchisee, Glenn Bowker of Screen Rescue Birmingham found right from the start of his franchise enquiry.”
“My pathway to trading was fraught with a roller-coaster ride of bank funding ups and downs,” states Glenn. “Undeterred, Amanda and I worked closely with my lenders on a day-by-day basis and despite a few offer mishaps, I soon opened my trading doors. It’s good to know you have franchisors who are by your side and support you well beyond their remit.”
Winning Franchisee of the Year in the VFA22 awards, sponsored by Barclays, was surreal. It is a real accolade to the training, support and business mentoring you get from Screen Rescue from day one. Now, with a thriving business and over 100 regular customers, life feels good. I only wish I’d become my own boss much sooner!Keith Harrison, Screen Rescue Stevenage franchisee since 2020
There is definitely a niche in the market for this proactive, professional windscreen repair franchise. When you can offer a wide range of windscreen and glass repairs on a daily basis, this clearly differentiates you from 'reactive' windscreen replacement competitors."Glenn Bowker, Screen Rescue Birmingham
Becoming a franchisee was fantastic. I’m so proud of how my business is going and what I’ve achieved already. Starting my own business has been a life-long ambition and I couldn’t have wished for better franchisor support. So much so, I’m now working towards taking on my first technician!Keith Harrison, Screen Rescue Stevenage
