TORONTO, April 17, 2012 /CNW/ - Print Three Franchising Corporation was honoured as a recipient of the Franchisees' Choice designation on April 2, 2012 during a Gala Awards Presentation at the 21st annual Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) National Convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This is the second 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, over 50 CFA member franchise systems participated in the survey, marking the highest number of entrants in CFA history. 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.
"The Franchisees' Choice Award is a true honour and further reinforces the relationship we at Print Three Franchising Corporation, have with our franchisees," says Andrew Hrywnak, President, Print Three Franchising Corporation. "Training, supporting, marketing and having open lines of communication with franchisees has been the only way to build our successful and strong franchise organization over that last thirty years in order to truly helps our franchisees grow their businesses. "
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 2012 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."
