(VANCOUVER, BC) April 16th, 2014 Aussie Pet Mobile is the Bronze winner of the 2014 Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) Awards of Excellence in the category of Non-Traditional – New/Emerging Franchise. For the third consecutive year, Aussie Pet Mobile was also honoured as a Franchisees’ Choice Designation Winner. The awards were presented to Aussie Pet Mobile on April 7, 2014 during a Gala Awards Presentation at the 23rd annual CFA National Convention held in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

“We are delighted to be recognized by franchising governing body and to be rated alongside other top franchise systems here in Canada” said Richard Avis, President & CEO of Aussie Pet Mobile Canada. “To be the recipient of these two awards speaks volumes for the Aussie franchise system but more notably it is recognition of the hard work and determination of our loyal and dedicated franchise owners who continue to add significant value to the Aussie brand together with their skilful team of professional groomers”, said Avis.

Considered the pinnacle of franchise achievement in Canada, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising is given annually to franchise systems that have demonstrated the strongest, most mutually-rewarding relationships with their franchisees, based on the results of a comprehensive survey of franchisors and their franchisees administered by third-party firm Association Resource Centre.

“The CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising truly sets a benchmark for franchises throughout Canada and we are pleased to recognize Aussie Pet Mobile for their commitment to excellence in franchising,” said Lorraine McLachlan, CFA President and CEO. “The true strength of a franchise system lies in the mutually-rewarding relationship between a franchisor and its franchisees which is vital to the system’s success and Aussie Pet Mobile’s results show that they offer outstanding support to their franchisees.”

This year, over 50 CFA member franchise systems participated in the independent survey administered by a third party. 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.
