easyStorage Finalists in Two Categories of the BFA Awards

easyStorage has been shortlisted in the Digital Transformation and the Emerging Franchisor categories of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards.

We are delighted to announce that easyStorage has been shortlisted in the Digital Transformation and the Emerging Franchisor categories of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards.

They've summed up what we do here quite nicely so we thought we would share...

easyStorage is a member of the easy family of brands, offering the no-frills approach to storage. Unlike traditional self-storage, they bring easyPods to the customer’s door. This provides 2 key advantages over traditional self-storage, it’s more convenient and it costs less too. They load items there and then, close the easyPods using security seals and take them to an easyStorage secure storage facility.

bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards: we are finalists

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.

easyStorage will be battling it out against two other franchise brands in each category to take home the coveted Emerging Franchisor and Digital Transformation accolades in November.

Digital Transformation Award

The Digital Transformation category has been introduced to represent the huge advancements that have taken place in recent years and showcase the very best examples of what getting this right can do. All finalists have made significant investment, looked beyond market options and progressed with development to identify, build and implement market leading technology.

“As a serious franchise business, it is critical to ensure continual investment in systems and process for the benefit of the overall business model. It is great to see the tremendous investment, both in time and money that our finalists have given to their digital transformation and not to mention that positive impact this is now having, well done to easyStorage and their team.“

Emerging Franchisor Award

Becoming a finalist in this category is recognition of the strong foundations and leadership needed in the build and growth phase of any brand and business journey. Finalists have shown a real passion for their brand and their people.
