A triumphal tour of the major centres had Snap franchisees cheering for their peers at one of the industry’s most significant award fixtures.

With awards ranging from the Mover and Shakers of the year, to the new franchise owner of the year, up to the ‘Oscar’ of the franchise system, the Paddy Thompson Award for Franchise of the Year, this year’s competition was well attended and keenly followed. As Steve Edwards, CEO, travelled around the states, handing out plaques and certificates, the strength of the franchise system was on display. The strong small business ethos behind the ambition of the participants was palpable as the winners took to the stage to celebrate their own success.

The winners of the Paddy Thompson Award: Al Babicka & Peter Pawelzig, Snap West Melbourne.

According to Stephen Edwards, CEO, the Snap franchise is growing strongly and moving into new products and services. “I would like to congratulate all the owners nominated and our award winners. It was also great to see many of our 21 new franchise owners for the past 12 months attend. We also had our gold partners attend and we really had a great vibe at all the events,” he said.

“Next years incentive trip was announced and all this coming years sales winners will be off to Tahiti. Business is still out there and many of our franchise owners continue to buck the doom and gloom of the industry.”

According to Raeleen Hooper, general manager franchise services the winners exemplify the core values of Snap, commitment to the Snap transformation strategy and dedication to the growth of the network and the brand. “We couldn’t be more proud of all the 2014 Snap Awards winners. It’s great to see so many of our franchisees excelling across in print, design and websites and we look forward to another great year.”
