New qualification sends strong signal to prospective property franchisees

A Darwen-based property insurance claims management business, which offers exciting and rewarding franchise opportunities to those wishing their own business as self-employed loss assessors, is celebrating the kudos of having its own Qualified Franchise Professional (QFP) in the team.

Richard Loasby, who is Head of Legal and Compliance at Aspray Limited, based in Darwen, has gained the challenging qualification after three years of study and a huge commitment to professional development.

To become a QFP, Richard has not only had to study in his own time, but also attend various workshops, seminars and conferences, pass specified examination topics, sit two written papers and attend a panel interview with senior members of the British Franchise Association (BFA).

As a result of his dedication, Aspray is now one of only around 150 franchisors to have an employee with this prestigious qualification. Of these, only 73 are to be found within the 900 or so franchises that operate in the British franchise sector, with the rest being in roles with affiliate members of the BFA.  This gives Aspray a huge competitive advantage as a franchisor and demonstrates the company’s commitment to first-class standards.

Richard Loasby was presented with his prestigious qualification at the BFA conference and will be continuing to enhance his knowledge and skills so that this valuable qualification can be retained.

Commenting on his success he says: “It was important for Aspray to communicate its dedication to quality and high standards, but also to demonstrate to potential franchisees that we care about their journeys as they build their property claims management, loss-assessing businesses and have the in-house specialists who will assist them every step of the way.

“Aspray, as a business, upholds and promotes the standards of the BFA and having a QFP in-house is a further demonstration of this.  This should be a signal to prospective franchisees, who want to buy into our successful business model, that Aspray has a business proposition to seriously consider, based on excellence, first class customer service, honesty and ethics.”
