Ripples are delighted to announce that we have been selected by Elite Franchising as a UK Top 100 franchise.

Ripples is celebrating after being named as one of the UK’s top franchise opportunities. From hundreds of entries across every sector, Ripples has been ranked position 93 overall in the prestigious Elite Franchise Top 100 (EF100) – a title it will hold for the duration of 2022.

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 economic climate, the last 12 months has seen franchise brands like Ripples survive and thrive thanks to their robust infrastructures and proven business models.  

“We feel that Ripples has well and truly earned their place in the Elite Franchise Top 100 list,” said Scott English, Brand Director of Elite Franchise. “This definitive league table of the Top 100 Franchisors shows just what Britain has to offer. Each year, the ranking becomes more competitive and this year has been no exception for our panel of industry-leading judges. 

“At EF100 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 challenges of 2021, along with ambitions and growth targets for the next financial year. Achieving this position is a testament to all that Ripples has achieved – they have consistently demonstrated a gold-standard level of franchising.”

“We are delighted to enter the Top 100 at the very first time of entering. We worked really hard with our franchise partners throughout 2020 and 2021 to rapidly evolve and develop the business to cope with a challenging environment and did so with great success. Not only have we increased sales for our existing network, but increased through the opening of new showrooms. This caps of a great year for Ripples and our franchise partners”. said managing director, Paul Crow.

The team at Ripples is proud to not only provide an exemplary service and products for its clients but now be named as an award-winning business opportunity for ambitious entrepreneurs too.
