2nd Annual Nurse  Next Door Franchise Conference closes with award program

September  15, 2009 (Vancouver, BC) – Nurse Next Door is proud to announce that,  this past weekend,

Christopher  and Lori Paton accepted the company’s 2009 Franchise Partner of the Year Award  on behalf of  their Oakville / Burlington, Ontario franchise.

The  2009 Nurse Next Door ‘Core Value’ Awards program took place at a gala event at  the Four Seasons

Hotel  in downtown Vancouver to cap off the company’s annual franchise conference. The  venue played host  to the historic event which brought together all of Nurse Next Door’s franchise  partners from across the  country for the second year in a row.

The  top prize, Franchise Partner of the Year, was based on diverse selection  criteria which included revenue,  planning process, financial records, team environment, and level of  participation with the franchise  program. While many franchise locations experienced a great deal of success  this past year the Oakville / Burlington franchise managed to come out on top.

“It is  a tremendous honor to be recognized as the top Nurse Next Door franchise,” said  Lori Paton. “We know  just how successful other franchise partners have been this past year so this  award definitely is very meaningful.”

“The  real satisfaction comes from the fact that we’ve been able to bring an  incredible level of care to seniors  in our community over the past year,” added Christopher Paton. “Winning this  award will just work  to encourage us further for the year to come.”

Driven  by its Core Values and Core Purpose, awards for each were also handed out. The  winners were:
