Grade Learning Receives the 2013 Franchisees’ Choice Designation for the Second Year in a Row, Presented by the Canadian Franchise Association (CFA)
Toronto, ON: April 12, 2013
Grade Learning was honoured as a recipient of the Franchisees’ Choice designation on April 8, 2013 during a Gala Awards Presentation at the 22nd annual Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) National Convention in Montréal, Québec. This is the third year for the annual Franchisees’ Choice designation program and Grade Learning’s second consecutive year receiving the award.
The Franchisees’ Choice designees are CFA member franchise systems who voluntarily took part in an independently-administered survey. This year, over 50 CFA member franchise systems participated in the survey. Franchisees were asked to assess their franchisor in key areas of the franchise business model, including the franchisee selection process; franchisee Information package; leadership; business planning and marketing; training and support; ongoing operations; and the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee.
Michael Bateman, President and CEO Grade Learning says, “I am very proud of receiving this award and designation for the second year in a row as it really comes to us from our franchisees and is based on the strength of the relationship between franchisee and franchisor which is critical to the success of any franchise system.”
In the due diligence process of investigating a franchise opportunity, speaking with existing franchisees about the opportunity being explored is essential. For prospective franchisees, the Franchisees’ Choice designation identifies that a franchise brand has received solid endorsement and ratings from its franchisees.
“The true strength of a franchise system lies in the mutually-rewarding relationship between a franchisor and its franchisees,” says Lorraine McLachlan, CFA President and Chief Executive Officer. “Being a Franchisees’ Choice designee is an honour and a vote of confidence because the high rankings in franchisee satisfaction come directly from the franchisees themselves.”
