Who are BBR Franchisees?

BBR Franchisees are all successful, independent, established, specialized contractors with highly trained staff, knowledge, experience, equipment and processes with strong local roots. Most of the BBR Franchisees have long-term relationships with the BBR Headquarters in Switzerland, some stretching back for over 50 years!

Proven franchising system, training & networking

BBR VT International as the Franchisor operates a proven franchising system and, as a Franchisee and BBR Network Member, you will not only benefit from our internationally recognized brands and quality processes, but you will also have access to the latest technical knowledge and resources, project support and global knowledge transfer. Regular technical training seminars, held regionally, support continued learning and knowledge of the very latest best practices. In addition, the annual Global BBR Conference provides both a forum for the exchange of information and an opportunity to get to know other BBR Network Members. In some countries and regions the license business model is still used offering similar benefits and advantages to the BBR Franchise.
