Ableworld named as one of the best bricks and mortar retailers in the UK

As the UK’s leading Mobility and Stairlift retailer, with company owned and franchise stores across the country, here at Ableworld we are delighted to have been listed in the Elite Top 100 (EF100) Franchisors list 2021.

The EF100 celebrates franchise business around the UK who are working hard to support and grow their network whilst also recognising the industry’s brightest franchises. Entering its fourth year, the annual definitive league table is thrilled to reveal who has made the top 100.

We are extremely proud to have be placed in the top 50 businesses, listing at number 46 as a new entry. 

Placing highly on the list is something to be incredibly proud of. This year, entrants have been judged on our eight key criteria as well as any measures they initiated to survive the challenges of 2020. These brands have amazed us with their resourcefulness and deserve huge congratulations,” said Scott English, Brand Director of Elite Franchise.

Ableworld Managing Director Mike Williams said “We are very honoured to have been included in this list of the UK’s top franchises, especially given the difficult year everyone has had. Whilst there have of course been challenges, Ableworld franchise owners have been able to keep their stores open all year, making sure that all our customers have had access to the vital products and services they need."

"We’re proud to have both our robust business model, and the support we give our franchisees, independently assessed as being of a standard that puts us in the Top 50 franchises in the UK, and Top 3 in terms of retail opportunities.”

Being recognised as one of the best retail franchise businesses in the UK and the 3rd bricks and mortar retailer, is a huge achievement for Ableworld, as we know that helping people live more independently means so much to so many people. We are delighted to share this award with our stores, franchisees and customers, and look to continuously develop and progress our Franchise network.
