WA FCA awards announced

Poolwerx has scooped two awards in the Franchise Council of Australia’s Western Australia regional awards. Other winning franchise brands included Pack & Send, Price Attack and PRD Nationwide.

Irene and Ian Hughes were named the WA Multi-Unit Franchisee of the Year and Darrell Doust took home the WA Field Manager of the Year Award.

The Hughes’ operate four Poolwerx retail outlets and five mobile vans across five territories in Perth, and attribute their success to both hard work and the benefits that come with being part of the franchise system.
