Could your franchise be an award-winning business?

How would you like to see your business heralded as an award winner? Submissions are now welcome for the national categories in the 2015 MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards. 

FCA general manager Kym De Britt said the awards provide business owners the opportunity to take an in-depth look at their franchise network and how it operates in the current market, and to gain valuable insights into the mechanics of running a franchise.

“The awards are an excellent way for businesses to monitor their performance across a range of key areas, and to help drive continuous improvement to systems and processes. Should you be successful, it is also an opportunity to showcase your achievements, and market your award-winning system to potential franchisees,” De Britt said.

Andrew Bellchambers of Shingle Inn Caf_, winner of the 2014 Australian Emerging Franchisor of the Year award, said that the awards were a great way for the management team to informally assess the performance of the business.

"We are often looking forward and planning and not celebrating our achievements and I think it's allowed us the space to do that, even before we were awarded the prize. It's helped to refocus everyone's efforts on what else we might be able to do to continuously improve," Bellchambers said.

National awards categories close on 8 June 2015, with full submissions to be provided by 19 June 2015.

The awards will be announced at the MYOB FCA National Excellence in Franchising Awards Gala Dinner on Tuesday 13 October 2015.
