Pass the Keys Steals the Show at the Virtual Franchising Awards 2021!


The Quality Franchise Association recently held its annual awards night, celebrating the brightest, most innovative franchises on offer in the UK. The most anticipated prize of the night was undoubtedly the New Franchisor of the Year, awarded to Britain’s most promising franchisor. And the gold winner award for New Franchisor of the Year was none other than Pass the Keys, confirming them as the best British franchise partner of 2021! But the short letting experts didn’t stop there.

Against formidable opposition, Pass the Keys also won gold for Best Technology and Innovation in recognition of the company’s embrace of the latest technology to support their franchisees and clients. Pass the Key provides a smart client portal, customer app, dynamic pricing strategies and bespoke technology to help their franchisees’ build a business that hits the ground running. After six years of optimising, the high calibre and intelligence of Pass the Keys technology has been officially recognised by a franchise association dedicated to quality franchise business!













 Pass the Keys’ star is clearly on the rise, but some viewers of the 2021 virtual awards were no doubt wondering exactly what business services Pass the Keys offer to their franchisees.

Put simply, Pass the Keys provides entrepreneurs with a “business in a box”, allowing them to manage a large number of short-let properties from any given UK location and market these properties on the major market platforms such as Airbnb, VRBO, Expedia and Booking.com. No prior training or experience on short-letting platforms is required. Working as a Pass the Keys property management franchisee is incredibly rewarding and flexible, and partners have the option to run a work-from-home franchise if they so wish.

Since their launch in 2015, Pass the Keys have become the experts of the short-let management industry and are excited to pass on their knowledge and bespoke technology to ambitious entrepreneurs across the UK. Pass the Keys offers their franchise partners the best of both worlds; franchisees are the boss but have access to the expertise, support and technology of a national brand. 

Alexander Lyakhotskiy, CEO of Pass the Keys, commented “2020 was an incredibly difficult year for our business, for all businesses. But thanks to the passion and dedication of our staff, we are continuing to expand across all corners of the UK. The future looks bright, and we are taking on new business-savvy franchisees. An unexpected outcome of the pandemic is that the short letting market has never been in higher demand and we are delighted that our franchisees will benefit from the upcoming staycation boom as Brits rush to book holiday lets within the British Isles this summer. The short letting industry is currently experiencing a meteoric rise and we are excited to see what opportunities 2021 will bring to our Pass the Keys Partners! ”
