In October, InXpress Australia held their very first Virtual Award Ceremony to celebrate the network’s hard work throughout 2019. While the event was planned for earlier this year, with lock-down laws coming in and out of play throughout most of the year, the decision was made to go ahead with a Virtual Awards Night which was held on Thursday, 8 October. 

During the event, Bhavin Shah, Franchise Owner of InXpress Wanneroo in WA, was awarded one of the company’s most prestigious awards, InXpress’ Franchise of the Year Award for 2019.  Aside from this award, Shah also took out 1st place for Highest Margin Growth and 3rd place for Highest New Customer Activations.

Shah started out as a technical engineer before deciding he wanted to be his own boss.

“I made a checklist of what I wanted in my own business – generate passive income, give me time to spend with my young growing family, challenging, and something I had never done before,” he said.

After seeing an ad for InXpress that checked all his boxes, Shah made an appointment for a face-to-face with the InXpress Sales Director about the overall business model, finances and whether he could develop a franchise into a strong earner.

He signed up for an InXpress franchise in February 2018 and attended the InXpress Franchisee Boot Camp. From there, he was quickly on his way to building his own business and earning an income. 

InXpress said Shah had shown incredible commitment to the continued development of his business and was highly deserving of this award.
