The Bradford Means Business Awards 2021 aim to celebrate the successes and achievements of companies throughout the Bradford district.

Nominations are open across ten categories, and the Winner of Winners Award will be decided on the night.

We're looking for an outstanding family business from across the district that embodies the spirit of family values through and through.

This award is for established family firms across the industry sectors, and the winner will need to demonstrate sustained success across a broad range of measures.

Our judges will also be looking at the aspirations of your business to demonstrate how both current and future family generations will be involved in the growth of the business.

Sponsored by Packetts, the category is Family Business of the Year for 2021.

Last time the award was presented in 2019, it was family-run motorbike dealer business Allan Jeffries that triumphed.

Father and daughter duo Tony Jefferies and Louise Jefferies spoke of their pride at winning the award against what Mr Jefferies described as “serious competition”.

The firm was established in 1917 and now spans four generations.

Tony Jefferies, who handed the business over to his daughter in 2000, said: “We’re really pleased that we stand out in the businesses in the Bradford area and made our mark against serious competition.

“It’s something to be proud of. It’s great that this happened.

“I didn’t think we would have a chance.”
