Age no barrier for Crust Parap Franchisee

Crust Parap Franchisee Sally Illingworth - Finalist for NT Young Achiever Awards

Crust Parap Franchisee Sally Illingworth has proven once again that age is no barrier after being nominated as a finalist in the Northern Territory Young Achiever Awards.

The ambitious 20-year-old is one of the youngest franchisees in the Crust Pizza network and said she owes her success constant local community support.

"It is an absolute honour to have my achievements recognised, persistence and passion are key to achieving whatever you set your mind on and it is important that challenges such as young age, are overcome throughout your journey".

Sally said she loves to give her customers the best of the best service and is recognized and loved by Parap locals, the store has been labelled a crust above after providing incredible support to the community and withholding the record for making the Australia’s largest pizza..

Crust Parap have been heavily involved in a number of community initiatives over the past two years including donating 100 pizzas to evacuees during the Daly River flood disaster, and partnering with the Make-A-Wish Foundation twice to raise money at their 1st and 2nd Birthday Events.

"It is a privilege to have the opportunity as a small business owner to give back and support my community in various ways" Sally says.
