Franchisee of the Year Finalist 2013: The ZipYard
Following the brand’s success in Ireland, Richard McConnell bought his ZipYard franchise in 2011 and set up the first ZipYard n England. Based in Lloyd Street Altrincham, the concept brings onsite repairs and alterations to the high street in purpose-designed premises with fully trained staff. The business has exceeded all expectations.

He is a finalist in the customer services category of the 2013 bfa Franchisee of the Year awards and will find out the result later this month.
