What Our Franchisees Say

The ongoing support from the franchisor is very comprehensive. Good initiatives and brochures are widely available to help you promote the business. New ideas and promotions are always changing to keep pace with the marketplace. It's this approach of constantly reassessing the marketplace that helps us maintain our position.Kevin Andrews, Recognition Express Taunton


Having been away from the workplace for 18 years, I was apprehensive about starting my own business. The support I have received from Recognition Express has been exceptional. The business is going extremely well and the economic climate has not affected my business at all. In fact, people are very aware of the need to promote the business and keep their name out there.Jan Chidley, Recognition Express Hull and East Riding
