Swimart Jindalee pool and spa franchisee crowned National Retailer of the Year

Swimart Jindalee has been recognised among the industry for business excellence, winning seven coveted state, national and Australasian industry awards within a space of two months.

“Jindalee owner/operators Ashley and Heidi Weekes have quickly become exceptional assets to the Swimart franchise network this past three years,” says Swimart Franchise Development Manager Alex Johnson. “The dynamic duo set a stellar example of how determination and enthusiasm are key ingredients for success.”

The winning partnership clinched top honours at the Swimming Pool and Spa Association’s (SPASA) Awards of Excellence, and Swimart’s annual awards ceremony recently held in Langkawi, Malaysia. They include:

“Our team of retail staff and in-field technicians provide an authentic customer service experience, with tailored pool care solutions, utilising the vast amount of experience our team has gained over many years caring for pools,” says Ashley. “These awards are a great tribute to everyone’s hard work and dedication.”

Swimart Jindalee has experienced consistent growth, both in its performance in the market as well as its workforce size, which has doubled since the Weekes’ acquired the business in May 2016.

“Ensuring our business has the right people, with the right skills, in the right place, at the right time, has been critical to our success in providing efficient, expert advice and service to customers,” Heidi explains. “Staff training and development and fostering a culture of continuous improvement are priorities for us.”
