Pizza Nova garners highest overall score for excellence in franchise operations
TORONTO, April 3, 2012 /CNW/ - The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) 2012 National Convention was hosted at the Sheraton Niagara Falls in Ontario, and on Monday night they presented their Awards of Excellence in Franchising at a gala dinner.
The CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising is the pinnacle of franchise achievement in Canada and is the highest recognition a franchise system can receive from the CFA.
Franchise systems compete each year for the title of winner through an independent process that evaluates the calibre and strength of their franchisee relations. The CFA Awards are presented annually to franchise systems that have demonstrated a dedication to superior franchisee relations, team work and communication and are decided based on the results of a survey, hosted by a third-party research firm and completed by CFA member franchisees about their experiences with their franchise system and relationships with the franchisor.
Pizza Nova was first honoured with the Gold prize in the "Traditional Franchises (i.e. brick and mortar locations) in the Mature/Established" category.
From amongst the Gold winners in each category, the franchise system with the highest overall score was then awarded the most-coveted and prestigious award presented by the Canadian Franchise Association, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising Grand Prize.
"Now I know what it feels like to get an Academy Award!" said a jubilant Domenic Primucci, President of Pizza Nova who accepted the award on behalf of Pizza Nova, thanking his franchisees, his staff and of course, his father, who founded the company in 1963. The award itself features two figures stepping in unison, symbolizing the franchisor and franchisee moving forward together.
