Entries Now Open for the Queensland and Northern Territory Excellence in Franchising Regional Awards
Following the success of the 2016 MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards in Canberra, there has never been a better time to enter in your system and people into the prestigious regional categories of the 2017 Excellence in Franchising Awards.
Take this opportunity for the industry to recognise the franchisees, talented support staff and the outstanding individuals that take your business further.
Make 2017 the year YOU shine and follow in the footsteps of your fellow peers! The FCA was proud to announce Queensland winner Ryan Kirkham of Baker’s Delight (Maroochydore & Kawana) the 2016 Australian Franchisee Community Responsibility and Contribution Award, and Stephen Hall of Poolwerx, Milton, Field Manager of the Year.
All entrants benefit from participating in the awards program. The entry criteria is designed to help you better understand your company through an up-to-date business health check and judges' feedback.
Why enter? Success at the Awards generates priceless publicity and promotion, with unparalleled brand perception for both individuals and franchise systems alike. It is a direct marketing exposure you cannot afford to miss.
Ryan, a local business owner on the Sunshine Coast, has always believed in putting back into the community and is an avid supporter of local charities, from organisations such as Wishlist, which raises money for the improvement of local public health services, and Life Church, which make weekly bread donations to help homeless people and struggling families within the community.
“Winning the state and national awards has given me and my staff a big boost in morale. The best part of participating in the MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards was to be compared against the best franchisees and franchisors in the state and country. To be in the same company of such highly regarded business men & woman… and to be selected as a finalist, then a state and national winner was up there with the best of my achievements in my business career- to be recognised for the hard work that is put in is a great feeling,” he added.

- Multi-Unit Franchisee of the Year
