Local Nutri-Lawn wins national award!

Community Involvement/ Business performance

TORONTO, May 24, 2011 /CNW/ - Community involvement, customer service and business performance were the deciding factors that earned the Halifax Nutri-Lawn a back to back Franchise Of the Year recognition at the annual awards gala held in Cabo San Lucas to celebrate the achievements of Nutri-Lawn franchisees and their staff.

"We have only ever had one operation win Franchise of the Year in consecutive years, and Halifax has done it twice!" explained Jordan Lavin, Chief Operating Officer of Nutri-Lawn. "It was remarkable in 1992 and 1993, and it's just as remarkable in 2009 & 2010 to have the same operation, with the same team in place, win the prestigious Award."

The Award is based on many factors that are measured against peer operations. Customer service is measured through a 'Net Promoter Score' scale as well as rate of customers repeat business and referrals. Business growth, management acumen and Community Involvement are all measurable factors that the Nutri-Lawn Halifax operation was able to excel in to earn the Nutri-Lawn Franchisee of the Year Trophy, know within the organization as 'The Blade'.

Contributions to the 'Feed Nova Scotia' program from the locally organized Nutri-Lawn fall food drive stocked the local shelves with over 1300lbs of food collected from customers during their fall visit last year. As an organization, Nutri-Lawn has been supporting an orphanage in the Dominican Republic for 3 years by sending an organized team of 12 people from the company, volunteering their time, expertise and money to help improve the living conditions in and around San Pedro de Macoris. The Halifax team has been instrumental in their participation and support and formed a partnership with the local Rotary Club this past year to contribute to the project they have been working on.

"These awards are not taken lightly," explained CEO Ryan Vincent. "We start the candidate review process in the early part of the season and track the performance indicators thoroughly until it's time to finalize our decision."

Executive Chairman Ted Dzialowski stated that "recognition and reward for top performers is important to the culture of Nutri-Lawn. At the end of the year, franchisees that excel in different categories are rewarded, recognized and celebrated. Despite the recent economic climate, it has been exciting to see growth and performance improvement throughout Nutri-Lawn as exemplified by Nutri-Lawn Halifax. Our Franchisee of the Year, Nutri-Lawn Halifax and the staff are a credit to the Nutri-Lawn family and to the Halifax Community. They have demonstrated strong leadership in building the business, working with the Halifax team and supporting fellow franchisees within Nutri-Lawn."
