The British Franchise Association regularly honours those who are involved in franchising. Of the thousands of franchisees across the UK, being shortlisted for the 2018 awards is an incredible achievement. This is the case for Neil Hatt from InXpress Birmingham South.
The British Franchise Association (bfa) has been supporting the franchise industry for over 40 years. Their annual awards event is a fiercely competitive and hotly contended part of the franchise industry’s year. This year, InXpress UK nominated their Birmingham South franchisee, Neil Hatt, for his outstanding contribution to the InXpress network.
So, it with pleasure that InXpress can announce Neil has been shortlisted by the bfa for this year’s Franchisee Network Contribution award! As a franchise, InXpress are so appreciative of all he has achieved for his own business, as well as for the wider network – he regularly mentors and inspires other franchisees within the InXpress family to achieve greatness for themselves.
"In 2006, when I started InXpress Birmingham South. I was determined to build a profitable business! I worked hard and based on my profit margins, I currently rank in the top five InXpress UK franchises, and #12 in the top 20 InXpress Global franchises. I have certainly achieved what I set out to do!"
Neil isn’t just satisfied with achieving great results for his own business, he also relishes the opportunity to invest in other people and see them elevated above mediocre.
For example, not only does Neil achieve Top Gun status for his business, he also has helped two of his mentees – new InXpress business owners – to also reach the InXpress Top Guns list! The Top Guns list is reserved for the top five franchisees, based on either being the highest margin-producing, or fastest growing franchises for the year.
"Having been nominated by InXpress for the bfa franchisee award was, in itself an honour. But having been shortlisted by the bfa, for what I do naturally… I am speechless! It is such an achievement, as I know there are some amazing franchisees right across the industry, who would be contributing to their own networks."
Melanie Spencer, Head of Global Marketing for InXpress applauds Neil’s success:
"Neil really has a willingness to help the network, his attitude towards InXpress and how he runs his business is commendable. We are so proud of him and will be keeping all fingers and toes crossed on the night of the awards, for Neil. He is already a winner in our eyes, though."

InXpress gives you a business concept and plan that you can run with. All you need is the right work ethic to deliver and make the business successful. There’s a model in place so you don’t have to reinvent the wheel – that was the biggest attraction for me.Lendy Mazur, Salisbury franchisee since February 2013
With InXpress you don’t buy or sell stock so the business has low overheads and you don’t lose money on damaged stock. You’re selling the services of world branded products and it’s much easier to sell DHL services than white van. E-commerce is booming at the moment because more and more people are now buying online.Craig Atkins, Reading franchisee since 2007
I’ve known about franchising for quite a while and I’m reassured by the fact that 95% of franchisees are still in business after 5 years. New businesses often fail before the initial five years.Bill Carter, Liverpool franchisee since 2008
