Global pool and spa servicing brand, Poolwerx, has recognised its top-performing Franchise Partners at the annual Poolwerx Convention.


The three-day event, held in Adelaide earlier this week, recognises and rewards the best established and upcoming Australian and New Zealand Franchise Partners across a range of categories, including technical, brand, retail, mobile, B2B and innovation excellence.


John O’Brien, Poolwerx CEO and Founder, said the awards celebrate the effort and success of Franchise Partners, as well as their team’s dedication to providing outstanding service.


“Our winning Franchise Partners are the pinnacle of what can be achieved when you provide ongoing excellence in service, dedication to client support, and demonstration of ability to evolve, adapt and deliver through constant improvement.”


The calibre of Franchise Partners was evident at the awards ceremony, with several winning multiple award categories – including Poolwerx Hamilton (New Zealand), who took out the awards for both Regional and Franchise Partner of the Year.


Prue and David Kimber, who started their business in Hamilton in 2011, have grown their franchise into an enviable Mobile & Retail business with a revenue of $1.4 million.


“We’re thrilled to be recognised as Franchise Partner of the Year and to be the first New Zealand franchise to win this award. This would not have been possible without the hard work and outstanding contribution from our team.


“Our Poolwerx business is continuing to grow from strength to strength, so it’s very important for us to continually invest in our people and to ensure that our customers feel valued in knowing they have received the best possible service.”


Meanwhile, Poolwerx Waikiki (Western Australia) took home the award for Retail Store of the Year, while Heather Clarke of Poolwerx West Lakes (South Australia) was recognised as Franchise Women of the Year.


With 27 years experience, Poolwerx was founded in Australia and is the world’s largest pool service brand with over 160 retail outlets and 570 mobile vans in 350+ territories across Australia, New Zealand and the United States.
