The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2020 Franchisees’ Choice Designation through a video online that featured video speeches from the award winners. The CFA adapted its awards program to a video format as a result of COVID-19 physical distancing regulations, which prevented the CFA’s National Convention from taking place as scheduled in April.
This is the 10th year for the annual awards program and, to recognize franchise systems that have been awarded the Franchisees’ Choice Designation multiple years in a row, the CFA has introduced special 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10-year logos that these companies can use to promote their consistent high marks from franchisees.
“The Canadian Franchise Association’s Franchisees’ Choice Designation celebrates the strength of the Canadian franchise community, especially during this time of crisis,” says Sherry McNeil, CFA President & Chief Executive Officer. “Congratulations to all the Franchisees’ Choice Designees this year on receiving this honour and for helping to make us Stronger Together.”
The Franchisees’ Choice Designees are CFA member franchise brands who voluntarily took part in an independently administered survey. Their franchisees were asked to rate the franchisor in key areas of the franchise business model, including leadership, business planning and marketing, training and support, ongoing operations and the relationship between the franchisee and franchisor.
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 a solid endorsement and ratings from its franchisees. The 2020 Franchisees’ Choice designees are representative of the spectrum of franchise opportunities and the diversity and excellence of CFA members.
Regardless of any awards or recognitions a franchise system may receive, the CFA strongly recommends that prospective franchisees conduct thorough due diligence. The CFA offers an array of products and events for prospective franchisees, including the CFA’s official online franchise directory LookforaFranchise.ca, Franchise Canada Online (www.FranchiseCanada.Online), the annual Franchise Canada Directory, and the Franchise Canada Show, Canada’s ultimate franchise exhibition.
The 2020 Franchisees’ Choice Designation video presentation will be shared through social media in June 2020. For more information about the Franchisees’ Choice Designation program, visit www.awardsprogram.ca.
