Wins CFA Award of Excellence


May 18, 2008

May 13, 2008 - (Toronto, ON) - The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) is pleased to announce is the winner of the 2008 CFA Award of Excellence. The award was presented to the New Brunswick-based company on May 5, 2008 during a gala awards ceremony at the CFA National Convention at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville, Ontario.

The ultimate prize in Canadian franchising, the CFA Award of Excellence is given to the franchise system that has developed the strongest, most mutually rewarding relationships with its franchisees. The winning franchise system is decided based on direct feedback from the best possible source – the system’s Canadian franchisees.

“We’re so pleased to give the Award of Excellence to,” says Lorraine McLachlan, CFA President and CEO. “A solid relationship between franchisor and franchisee is vital to the system’s success and this company’s results show that they offer outstanding support to their franchisees.”

"It's great to win this award because it's the ultimate prize in Canadian franchising. It's kind of like taking home the Oscar for Best Motion Picture, but better, since it was our franchise owners who were the ultimate judges," says President and CEO Ken LeBlanc. "Although we're excited to be recognized by our peers, we dedicate this award to our franchise owners. Without all their hard work, dedication and belief in our system, the success we enjoy would not be possible."

Other finalists for this year’s Award of Excellence are Expedia CruiseShipCenters International and AmeriSpec Home Inspection Service.
