Paul Davis Canada Recognized for Franchise Excellence at CFA National Convention
May 10, 2018 // Franchising.com // TORONTO, ON - Paul Davis Restoration is the Grand Prize Gold winner of the 2018 Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) Awards of Excellence in Franchising in the Category of Non-Traditional 30+ Franchisees. Paul Davis also received the 2018 Franchisee’s Choice Award for the first time. The awards were presented to Paul Davis on April 23, 2018 during a Gala Awards Presentation at the 27th annual CFA National Convention in Ottawa, Ontario.
Considered the pinnacle of franchise achievement in Canada, CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising are 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 franchisees administered by a third-party firm, The Portage Group.
“This ranking was determined completely by franchisee satisfaction, and Dan Hopkins and I appreciate those who completed the survey sent by the CFA several months ago. I am grateful for their strong rating of our team, and I am humbled by our victory,” says Bill Dietz, President, Paul Davis.
This year, more than 70 CFA member franchise systems participated in the survey. Participating franchise systems were assessed on their performance in key areas, including franchisee relations, leadership, business planning, marketing, training and support, ongoing operations and communications.
“The CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising truly set a benchmark for franchises throughout Canada and we are pleased to recognize Paul Davis for their commitment to excellence in franchising,” says Lorraine McLachlan, CFA President and CEO. “A solid relationship between franchisor and franchisee is vital to the system’s success and Paul Davis’ results show that they offer outstanding support to their franchisees.”
Open exclusively to CFA franchise system members who have been franchising for three years or more, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising competition includes seven categories to enable franchise systems to be rated against their peers. Entries are separated into Traditional Franchises (i.e. those with bricks and mortar locations) and Non-Traditional Franchises (i.e. mobile, home-based, etc.), then grouped based on number of franchisees.
Systems with the highest scores in each category are recognized with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. The prestigious CFA Award of Excellence in Franchising Grand Prize is given to a Gold winner in the Traditional category and a Gold winner in the Non-Traditional category.
