Pass the Keys® has been shortlisted in the Emerging Franchisor category of the bfa HSBC British Franchise Awards!

Pass the Keys® launched in 2015 to revolutionize the short-term rental industry in the UK by offering a full-service solution to homeowners who were unable to manage their own properties. They provide a fully managed service, dealing with everything from guest communication to cleaning, linen and invoicing. This dedication to customer experience has resulted in Pass the Keys® today being the UK’s leading short-let management company.

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.

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.

Pass the Keys® will be battling it out against two other franchise brands to take home the coveted Emerging Franchisor accolade. 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.

Pip Wilkins, CEO of the British Franchising Association, congratulated category finalists: “To be announced as a finalist for this award is a huge achievement and a real testament to the brand’s hard work and determination. Each year, these awards let us show franchisors that we’ve noticed their efforts, we’ve recognised their positive intention and fantastic impact on their network and the industry and we are thankful for their commitment. A big congratulations to the whole Pass the Keys® team.”

Gillian Morris, Head of Franchising, HSBC, said: “The annual awards are a celebration of the achievements of the franchise sector, as well as the high standards of the finalists, their innovation and resilience demonstrated over the past year. We look forward to celebrating success with Pass the Keys® and their team.”
