The judges called Franchize Consultants ‘A deserving winner. Franchize Consultants is strongly process-based and shows evidence of ongoing innovation. They are a solid user of information management systems. With positive results trends across the board, their customer performance is particularly impressive leading to a high level of customer satisfaction and repeat business.’
We were also delighted that the Franchise Association of New Zealand (FANZ) inducted Win Robinson into Life Membership. Win was one of five people whose impact on the world of New Zealand franchising and the development of FANZ was regarded as outstanding. We were also very pleased that another of the five inducted into Life Membership was Fraser Heaven.
Fraser was the original founder of Franchize Consultants and played an important leadership role in the development of the FANZ and early franchising in New Zealand. Win and Fraser were both long standing FANZ board members, and past chairmen.
We would like to thank all of our current and past clients for their business and support over the years. We consider ourselves privileged to work with such a range of interesting and dynamic entrepreneurs, business people and sectors.
We would also like to strongly thank our consulting and administrative staff, including Robert McLaren, Ross Blake, Pam white, Graham Elliot, Andrew Allen, Michelle Bentham, Brigid Duffield, Pete Swinburn and Shelley Cross.
We also greatly appreciate our network of professionals, including banks, lawyers, accountants, publishers and others that recognise the value of our consulting, training and research – and refer our services to their clients and contacts.
Thank you all for your support.
Callum Floyd and Win Robinson
