Kwik Kopy North Sydney has been awarded the 2016 Kwik Kopy Franchise of the Year award after notching up the best sales figures and highest production rates.

“Kwik Kopy North Sydney is a terrific example of everything that is strong and unique about a Kwik Kopy business,” said company MD David Bell. “I’m extremely impressed with what Jeremiah and Carol Akladious have achieved. Their outstanding sales performance marked by the highest sales per person and highest in-house production per person of all centres, combined with their strong customer service and commitment to quality make them second to none.”

The award assesses the top twenty performing Kwik Kopy centres against a series of benchmarks including sales, growth, profitability, strength of customer and peer relationships, contributions to the Kwik Kopy network and the impact they have on their community.

The North Sydney franchise has been run by owners Jeremiah and Carol Akladious for nearly six years. Carol is a graphic designer who previously worked in another Kwik Kopy centre. Production manager Scott McSkimming was already employed in the business when it was acquired.

“We’re humbled and honoured,” said Jeremiah Akladious. “It feels great to be recognised for the hard work our incredible team puts in everyday. They truly are the backbone of our business and this award is a testament to them. Being a part of the Kwik Kopy family has been a wonderful experience. The support we’ve received from day one from head office and other centres has helped significantly with building our business.”

Akladious believes the prospects for print are excellent.

“Print is still very much alive, in fact it’s a growth market. We’re seeing a shift towards smaller runs but with a greater focus on quality touches such as embellishments. On top of that we’re seeing many businesses opt for an integrated solution, combining print with complementary offerings such as promotional products. The future for our industry is extremely bright.”

Kwik Kopy North Sydney is a one-stop-shop for corporates, with a diverse product and service offering including graphic and web design, online, digital printing, wide format printing and promotional products.

Kwik Kopy Australia was established in 1982 as a Master Licence holder from Kwik Kopy Corporation U.S.A and has grown to operate over 90 franchises throughout Australia.
