Caremark honour their brightest and best in annual awards ceremony
Those businesses across the network who have grown their business and shown innovation and forward thinking are recognised with our regional and national awards
Every year we honour businesses across our network which have showed award-winning qualities: positive innovation and forward-thinking creating business growth, a fantastic service to their customers whilst nurturing and growing a dedicated care team.
It is never easy to select winners from amongst so many notable franchisees but in the end, these are the worthy few who made it to the winner’s table.
Regional Awards – these awards recognise franchisees who have grown their business in their respective region and their achievements are even more noteworthy as they emerged from the disruptive effects of a pandemic. The last year was extremely challenging as they had to make strategic decisions despite the chaos of COVID 19, whilst negotiating complex Brexit regulations around recruitment, all of which made business growth harder than 2020.

Franchisee of the Year & the Kevin Lewis Trophy

Joint CEO David Glover said: “It is very important to recognise the unbelievable work done by our franchisees and their brilliant teams. My only regret is that we can’t award all our franchisees as, without exception, the work they do in their communities, especially during such challenging times, is truly outstanding.”
