Coffee House Celebrates Award Nomination

Gloria Jean’s Coffees Brisbane DFO has secured a position as a 2015 finalist for the Franchise Council of Australia’s Queensland Excellence in Franchising Awards.

Local franchisees Shiny and Sam Sidhu said they were humbled to be amoung the finalists who were nominated for the Franchisee of the Year award and are exited at the opportunity to promote their business.

“We’re thrilled to be able to share this achievement with our team and our local community,” Shiny said.

“We’re very proud and humbled to be named a finalist among other wonderful franchised businesses.”

Since opening their Coffee House, Shiny and Sam have focused their attention on creating a positive store culture and giving back to their local community.

“Our store has a culture of reward and recognition and we always take the time to celebrate individual and team successes with our team members,” Sam said.

“We try to make the most of being part of the renowned Gloria Jean’s Coffees franchise system by partnering with our local charities like ‘Variety, The Children’s Charity’ to connect with our wider community.

“This year through the ‘Cappuccino for a Cause’ promotion we donated proceeds from our cappuccino sales to ‘Variety’ to help disadvantaged young Aussies achieve their full potential through scholarships and educational equipment.”

The store will be judged in the ‘Single-Unit Franchise Two or More Staff’ category, with the pairs application focused on the store’s planning, performance and community contribution.

Judging of each category is in progress, with the winners to be announced at the Awards Gala dinner held on Monday 8 February.
