Poppies is celebrating after making it into the top 100 franchises, as ranked by Elite Franchise Magazine. 

The West Lancashire-based domestic cleaning franchise came in at 58th place in the league table, which includes many internationally recognisable fast-food brands like Subway. Having recently celebrated Poppies’ 40th anniversary, the franchise is excited to receive recognition of its work to develop the business. 

Judges at Elite Franchise Magazine noticed the network’s support schemes and new digital system, which was introduced to offer convenience to both franchisees and customers. 

Chris Wootton, who was a franchisee with Poppies before he took ownership of the franchise in 2018, expressed his excitement at being recognised in the ranking after a challenging year. He said,

“We’re so humbled to be part of the list once again this year. Every single sector and industry has been affected by the pandemic, and I’m proud to see that our people have been recognised for their resilience and commitment. 

“This ranking is truly a combined effort, and I have to thank our network of 22 franchisees with their offices across the UK - without them and their positivity, camaraderie and determination, this year wouldn’t have seen the success we’ve experienced.”

Chris has big plans for the future, and he intends to double the size of the Poppies franchise network over the next four years. He explained,

“I launched my own Poppies office in 1996 in West Ormskirk and, since then, I’ve seen the entire brand go through several transitions and various stages of its life cycle - I’m certain that the next one will be the most exciting part yet. 

“This year has taught us a great deal, which has placed us in a strong position to come out the other side with a spring in our step.”
