The Award that spells confidence and trust

Taking an existing business or greenfields idea into the world of franchising represents more than a large financial investment, it requires total trust and confidence in your franchise consultant and their team leadership capabilities.

It is your franchise consultant who besides assembling the myriad administrative and other pieces that go into setting up a franchise system must interface and coordinate the many other service providers including specialist franchise accountants, franchise lawyers, bankers, marketing gurus, financial planners, export programme developers and many more.

At the 15 Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards on November 14 the judges made it a whole lot easier to help you decide on your franchise consultant by naming The Franchise Coach winner of the Service Provider Award 2009/2010.

In announcing the award, the judges said they were impressed by The Franchise Coach's ability to meet all judging criteria and clear evidence shown that The Franchise Coach has built an effective business model providing valuable support to its clients and bringing credit to the franchise industry in New Zealand. The judges also singled out The Franchise Coach's robust approaches to governance and business planning.

“This is a great honour and a highlight of our 24 years in business. But what pleases us most about winning the Service Provider Award 2009/2010 it was judged and awarded by our industry peers,” says The Franchise Coach founder and principal David McCulloch, “and as such quite literally spells out confidence and trust to those facing the difficult task of choosing their franchise consultant.”

The Franchise Coach also participated in the awards as a sponsor of the Retail Services Best Franchise System of the Year which went to MINIT NZ Ltd (Mister MINIT) and the Retail Services Best Franchisee of the Year awarded to Tim and Tina Morrison of Carpet One, Counties.
