ServiceMaster Ltd has announced that one of its franchise owners has been selected as a regional finalist in the Franchisee of the Year 2012 Award, organised by the British Franchise Association (BFA).

Barbara and Ian Roberts, who operate the Merry Maids Stafford franchise, took part in the final stage of this process in London last month. They will find out if they are to be crowned winners in October.

The Franchisee of the Year 2012 Award is the biggest award a franchise owner can receive and it aims to celebrate excellence within the franchising community, highlighting the dedication, enterprise and professionalism of franchise owners from a wide variety of business sizes and sectors.

Ian Roberts said: “We are proud to be finalists for the bfa Franchisee of the Year award, and are happy to recognise the efforts of our team which have brought us to this position. We would not have made it without the great support of ServiceMaster Ltd. There hasn’t been a day when we’ve regretted being part of the ServiceMaster Family of Brands.

“We picked a fantastic franchisor to support us in our business venture. ServiceMaster Ltd is experienced, with good ethics and a mutual interest in growth.”
