Double Award Winner Siva Kugathas Wins Prestigious BFA Trailblazer & People’s Choice Award.
Siva Kugathas from ServiceMaster Clean AAA received the coveted Franchisee Trailblazer Award and the People’s Choice Award during the prestigious BFA HSBC British Franchise Awards.
Siva received the Franchisee Trailblazer Award as a recognition of his work within the ServiceMaster Clean brand model and for showing what is truly possible with the collaboration of a franchise business.
But there was one more surprise award on the night, the People’s Choice award, where the attendees voted from the list of winners for who they thought was deserving of this new award for 2023.
Therefore, this award truly placed Siva as the best of the best!
This unexpected award added extra excitement to an already remarkable evening, making it an event to be remembered for outstanding achievements and the collaborative spirit of those who make the industry thrive.
Pip Wilkins, Chief Executive of the BFA, said:
“Our huge congratulations to all the winners tonight. We had some fantastic entries this year and these winners really stood out from the crowd. We would like to thank them for being such great ambassadors of the BFA and for representing the very best in UK franchising.”
Judge, awards host and UK Head of Franchise, Commercial Banking at sponsors HSBC Bank Gillian Morris said:
“The diversity of franchising on display at tonight’s awards ceremony – across so many brands and sectors – demonstrates the strength and reach of the industry. Choosing a winner is never easy and I’d like to join Pip in thanking everyone who entered and sending our warm congratulations to all the winners on these very well-deserved awards.”
Siva is the definition of a trailblazing franchisee.
His performance, growth, and transformation in 6 years have been awe-inspiring.
Turning a business with a £50,000 turnover into an empire of 14 successful territories, he has demonstrated success under the ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services model and in an industry with no ceiling.
Upon receiving his award, Siva said:
“I am delighted to win the HSBC BFA British Franchise Trailblazer award. I want to thank BFA for the award and most importantly my team. I would like to dedicate this award to my management staff and the rest of my team.”
With the right attitude, ambition, and team spirit to move his focused staff behind his goal, he is on track to hit his goal of £10 million turnover by 2027.
He will undoubtedly achieve this by following his unstoppable trajectory and utilising his close connection to his network, trust in the brand and passion for delivering a quality service.
