Lingotot Are Rising Stars in This Year’s HSBC UK Elite Franchise Top 100

The HSBC UK Elite Franchise Top 100 is regarded as the UK’s definitive league table in the world of franchising, showcasing the best of the best. Based on a number of categories from financial performance, support provided to franchise partners, contribution to their community, and much more, franchises across the UK are ranked from 1 to 100 by a panel of experienced judges.

In this year’s competitive rankings, Lingotot climbed a whopping 21 places from last year’s league. This impressive climb has meant they have been recognised as one of the highest ‘Rising Stars’, sitting at an amazing 58th place. Angela Sterling, founder and CEO, says ‘to be recognised as one of the top 100 franchises in the UK is an incredible achievement in itself, but to have climbed 21 places during a global pandemic is an amazing acknowledgement of the solidity and robustness of our franchise model.’

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown many challenges at the education franchise. With the closure of schools, nurseries and indoor settings, their franchise model needed to adapt with speed, and this is exactly what they did. Lingotot were ready with a comprehensive online learning platform on day one of the first lockdown. From then on they kept up to date with safety regulations for staff and students and introduced Covid safe outdoor learning classes. Their incredible efforts have not gone unnoticed by this year’s Elite Franchise judges and the future looks bright for the Lingotot team.
