Australian Franchise News – 17-09-09


AUSTRALIA’S leading networked pool and spa care provider PoolWerx has celebrated its national franchisee awards with a gala evening at the Hyatt Regency Coolum.
Thirteen national awards and 12 regional awards were handed out to PoolWerx Franchisees who have made outstanding contributions over the past year in the areas of entrepreneurship, courage in business and brand excellence among others
PoolWerx CEO John O’Brien said the awards were one of the most effective ways to acknowledge the continued dedication and commitment of their leading franchisees.
“We have a network of over 300 franchisees in Austraila and New Zealand and this is our opportunity to say thank you for their efforts and business success.” 
The top gong of ‘Franchisee of the Year’ went to Dubbo franchisees Brett and Jenny Singleton.
The husband and wife duo, who own a PoolWerx retail hub and a number of mobile vans, said they were humbled by the award win.
“The entire PoolWerx Dubbo team has worked hard to earn the successes we have had and to be acknowledged by our franchisor nationally is a real honour,” Brett said.
The couple were also named ‘Regional Franchisees of the Year’ for the Sydney West region.
