What a year! 2023 was a fantastic year for Aspray franchise, not just as company but for our franchisees individually as well. So much has happened that it’s hard to condense it down into one article. But here are the highlights from a fantastic year…

Aspray franchise celebrating with his team

Winners in 2023!

2023 was a year of awards for us. From being placed #34 in the Elite Franchise Top 100 to gaining the 5-star franchisee satisfaction, it was certainly a year of celebration.

But the crowning moment came in June when we were named Loss Assessor of the Year 2023 at the prestigious British Claims Awards. An accolade well deserved and is a true testament to the hard work of the network.

See the winning moment and hear from our founder and MD, James Whittle, on the winning night:

Our Biggest Conference Yet

In May, our network took over Bowood Hotel in Wiltshire for the annual conference 2023. With more speakers, a trio of activities and finished off with the prestigious franchise awards it truly was an event not to be missed.

Talks featured celebrating the year gone by, company growth and next steps, new innovative drying techniques, the importance of community within franchising and a motivational speech from Aspray’s top performer, Joe McGuigan. Special guests from Create Solutions even managed to make compliance an interesting topic.

As the two-day event drew to a close, well-deserved awards were presented. Franchisees Mario & Ana Lovric scooped the coveted Franchisee of the Year award after a tremendous year of growth.

The event of 2024 has a lot to live up to!

Phil Bray, Aspray Franchisee

Goodbye Phil

As the year came to a close, we said goodbye to our longest serving franchisee, Phil Bray, who will be leaving us early this year. After an awe-inspiring 15 years as a franchisee, Phil will be heading into retirement. He’s looking forward to spending more time with his wife and venturing off to warmer climates during the winter months.

A new franchisee will be taking over the Portsmouth territory very soon…

Pedalling for Success

From Vietnam to Cambodia, franchisee Joe Mcguigan took on an 8-day cycling challenge in aid of Marie Curie. Raising a whopping £16,000 for the charity, we are all in awe of his fantastic achievement.

2023: A Phenomenal Year

Reflecting on the past year, we’re incredibly proud of the strides we’ve made at Aspray. Our commitment to excellence and innovation in the property claims management industry has been unwavering. We’ve placed a strong emphasis on supporting our franchisees, actively involving ourselves in community initiatives, and upholding ethical practices. These efforts have not only garnered us prestigious accolades but have also been instrumental in building a robust and successful franchise network.

As we look to the future, our continued pursuit of growth and excellence promises even more success in the franchising world. This journey, filled with achievements and learning, excites me as I anticipate what we will accomplish next.
