(Ottawa, Ontario) April 18, 2016. Print Three Franchising Corporation was honoured as a recipient of the Franchisees’ Choice designation on April 18, 2016 during a Gala Awards Presentation at the 25th annual Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) National Convention in Ottawa, Ontario. This is the sixth year for the annual Franchisees’ Choice designation program.
The Franchisees’ Choice designees are CFA member franchise systems who voluntarily took part in an independently-administered survey. This year, nearly 60 CFA member franchise systems participated in the survey and more franchisees completed the survey than ever before. Franchisees were asked to assess their franchisor in key areas of the franchise business model, including the franchisee selection process; franchisee information package; leadership; business planning and marketing; training and support; ongoing operations; and the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee. In order to qualify for this designation, a minimum of 10% of a brand’s franchisees must participate. In many cases, franchisee responses were significantly higher.
“We’re extremely proud of the network and infrastructure we’ve created for our Print Three franchisees, as well as the commitment from our head office team to support our franchisees in any way possible,” said Andrew Hrywnak, President of Print Three Franchising Corporation. “We are truly honoured to receive this Franchisee Designation Award for the third year in a row. It certainly demonstrates that our franchisees recognize the value they receive as part of the Print Three network.”
“Each individual franchisee achieves success in their own individual way; however, the relationship between Franchisor and Franchisee is most important in ensuing success on both sides. Head Office will continue to extend our hard work in helping each Franchisee reach their goals and continued success.”
In the due diligence process of investigating a franchise opportunity, speaking with existing franchisees about the opportunity being explored is essential. For prospective franchisees, the Franchisees’ Choice designation identifies that a franchise brand has received solid endorsement and ratings from its franchisees. The 2016 Franchisees’ Choice designees are representative of the spectrum of franchise opportunities and the diversity and excellence of CFA members.
“The true strength of a franchise system lies in the mutually-rewarding relationship between a franchisor and its franchisees,” says Lorraine McLachlan, CFA President and Chief Executive Officer. “Being a Franchisees’ Choice designee is an honour and a vote of confidence because the high rankings in franchisee satisfaction come directly from the franchisees themselves.”
