VAUGHAN, ON, May 11, 2017 /CNW/ - Print Three Franchising Corporation and Bloomtools Canada were honoured as recipients of the Franchisees' Choice designation on April 3, 2017 during the Gala Awards Presentation at the 26th annual Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) National Convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This is the seventh 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, more than 60 CFA member franchise systems participated in the survey.
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 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 2017 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."
Print Three and Bloomtools Canada are partners in franchising, combining their strengths to bring franchisees the best marketing tools, support, and technology to grow their businesses. With access to each company's resources, both Bloomtools and Print Three provide encompassing online and offline marketing solutions for every one of their franchisees. In addition, both franchise organizations share 9 common franchisees.
"Being recognized by our franchisees for this award is a true testament to the relationships we build with our franchisees, and the value we provide them to help them grow their business," says Andrew Hrywnak, President of Print Three Franchising Corporation. "We're very proud of the network and infrastructure we've created for our Print Three franchisees, and thrilled to have won this award for the fourth year in a row."
"While Bloomtools has been in business for over 13 years in Australia, Bloomtools Canada is truly honoured to be selected by our franchisees for this award after opening our doors in Canada in 2015," added Boaz Willinger, President of Bloomtools Canada.
"We pride ourselves on the training, support, and marketing materials we provide our franchisees. This award symbolizes the hard work, passion, and commitment of our team, as we continue our mission to provide results-focused, online solutions for businesses across a spectrum of industries in Canada."
