The Purple House Clinic Glasgow have been selected as finalists for the Community Focus award for the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards 2022.

The Purple House Clinic provide much needed therapeutic services to children and adults in their community, helping with a range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, trauma, adjustments to life events, learning difficulties and developmental disorders.

Directors, Michelle and Tomas had watched with admiration, the success of the founding clinic based in England in the early years and when the opportunity came up to buy a franchise, it felt serendipitous and by engaging with the franchise model, Michelle and Tomas were then able to feel empowered in a structured way to develop their own Purple House Clinic in Glasgow with structures, processes, governance and support in place from day one to help guide them through starting up, developing and growing their practice through the years.

Known as the ‘Oscars’ of the franchising industry and set to take place on 24 November in Birmingham, the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards evening is the flagship event in the franchising calendar and finalists are definitely ones to watch.

​​This year saw a record number of entries submitted across all categories, leading to an overall increase versus 2021. Despite what continues to be challenging times for most independent businesses, the franchising sector has shown strength and resilience. As a result, many bfa members have reported strong financial performance and continue to build strong, healthy networks.

The Purple House Glasgow will be battling it out against two other business owners to take home the coveted
Community Focus accolade in November. The Community Focus Award represents business owners that care about more than just profits. The winning franchisee will understand the importance of making their business matter in the local community.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association, congratulated finalists: “This category showcases the breadth of impact that business owners operating franchises can have on their communities. It is a common myth that franchises are large faceless organisations, this really isn’t the case and most owners will have invested life savings to open their business and boost their local economies, providing opportunities for local people.”

Gillian Morris, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said: “The annual awards are a celebration of the achievements of the franchise sector, as well as the high standards of the finalists, their innovation and resilience demonstrated over the past year. We look forward to celebrating success with The Purple House Glasgow.”
