Lloyds Bank has a specialist team of franchise experts who are available to support all your franchising needs from initial research through to selling your business.

Suki Dehal, Head of Franchising at Lloyds Banking Group is committed to promoting ethical franchising and recognising excellence in the industry. He states ’I’m proud to be a judge and supporter of these awards which recognise franchisees who are shining examples of how investing in a franchise can help build an enormously successful business when the operating systems are followed, combined with magic ingredient of the passion and determination of a motivated individual.’

Suki has worked in the franchising industry for over 6 years, and prior to that worked in commercial banking for 5 years. His experience of franchising has led Suki and his wife to also become franchisees in their local area with Home Instead, giving him another perspective into the industry.
