Autosmart business owner is nominated for prestigious national British Franchise Association award

LICHFIELD, UK 15TH December 2022 – Josh Jillians, the local Autosmart franchisee for the Maidstone area, invested in the franchise in 2018 when he was just 24 years old. Now aged 28, Josh celebrates receiving a nomination for the “Next Generation – Franchisee of the Year” award. 
Franchisees aged 30 and under who are new to franchising but are passionate about it are honoured in the Next Generation category.
A leading provider of vehicle cleaning products in the UK, Autosmart offers the most comprehensive line of products available. Since its founding 43 years ago, they have sold their products exclusively through a network of independent franchise owners operating mobile-showrooms.
Autosmart business owner, Josh states “I am thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Franchisee of the Year award in the category Next Generation.
“I joined Autosmart at the age of 24 and became their youngest ever franchisee.  I invested in the company because of their world class products and proven system, and I am proof that franchising can bring job satisfaction and success at any age.
“I’m not yet 30 and I’m already a home and business owner with plans to expand to multiple showrooms in the near future. Through my franchise, I have achieved my personal dreams and ambitions more quickly than I ever expected, and I am confident that with a lot more hard work, I can continue to provide a fantastic future for myself and my family.
British Franchising Association CEO Pip Wilkins congratulated the finalists: “For many franchisees the risk of investing into the franchising world can be scary, the finalists in this category have proved that age is simply a number and experience doesn’t need to be achieved in years. Fabulous examples to our next generation”.
