Louise Harris, a client of d&t was given the award of New Franchisor of the Year. A popular figure in franchising, she has done franchising ‘right’ from the very beginning. EWIF described her success to date as follows: "She has devoted a large amount of time to learning how to do things correctly. We often see organisations set up one day and disappear the next because they don’t build their franchises properly. Louise has done it right from the start and that really impressed us because it means she is offering a sustainable business to her franchisees”
Louise kindly commented: "d&t are part of that offering since it was important to us that we put good accounting practices in place from the very start"
