Aussie Pet Mobile Cleans Up At The 2012 CFA Awards Gala


Apr 04, 2012

Aussie Pet Mobile, the world's largest and favourite mobile pet grooming business in the $50-plus billion pet industry, was awarded the prestigious Franchisees' Choice Designation Award at the annual Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) Awards evening held at Niagara Falls, Ontario.

The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) annually awards the Franchisees' Choice Designation to member franchise systems for solid rankings in franchisee satisfaction. Franchise owners take part in an independent CFA survey and are asked to rate the franchisor in many key areas including information packages, leadership, business planning, marketing and the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee, to name a few.

"The most pleasing part of receiving this award is that it is voted on by our network. Our franchise owners have basically presented us this prestigious award", said Richard Avis CEO of Aussie Pet Mobile in Canada.

"Being a Franchisees' Choice designee is a high honour," says Graham Cooke, Chair of the CFA Board of Directors and Vice President of New Restaurant Expansion, A&W Food Services of Canada.

"We work very closely with our team of owners and to receive their 'seal of approval' is most gratifying. We have big plans for the brand across Canada and will be continuing to roll out our premium pet grooming and pampering service following the awarding of our 40th franchised territory in the York Region, Toronto recently", says Avis.

The convenient pet grooming services offers one-on-one attention in an inviting and relaxing atmosphere not typically found in storefront locations. Many Aussie Franchise Owners at the official groomers of the SPCA in their community and many volunteer their grooming services to seniors. The Aussie Pet Mobile, a custom designed Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van with AC, heat, electricity, and water, relied on no outside electrical or water hookups which make the service easy for condo residents as well as homeowners."

Aussie Pet Mobile's professional pet groomers pamper pets with a 15-step spa treatment that includes a customized shampoo, massage, hand dry, brushing, and nail trimming, just to name a few treats. Extra services are also available, such as aloe treatments for dry skin, nail grinding, flea and tick control and an excess hair removal tool know as the Furminator that reduces shedding up to 90% if done on a regular basis.

In 2012, Aussie Pet Mobile was voted the World's #1 Pet Service by Entrepreneur Magazine and also won Franchise of the Year in Greece.

Aussie Pet Mobile was founded in Australia in 1996 and is the world's largest mobile pet grooming business serving more than 700 exclusive territories in the US and 8 overseas countries including Australia, Japan, Ireland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Greece, the UK and has taken Canada by storm.
