In a field of world-class brands and franchise systems, this recognition is bestowed upon the franchise brand which created the most innovative and successful marketing campaign in the past year. WBU also took top honors in the categories of Best Digital Marketing Campaign, Best Limited Budget Marketing Campaign and Best Franchisee Support.
WBU’s 2021 Q4 Paid Media Campaign in large part contributed to these wins.
