20 Years In The Making


Congratulations to the winners of this years’ Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards, especially Specsavers, who won the Franchise System of the Year title, and Ivy Joe of The Coffee Club, who was named Franchisee of the Year for a remarkable third year in a row. This was the 20th year of the Awards and one company managed to be a winner in both the very first and the very latest event – a magnificent achievement. Read our full report here.

Franchising has come a long way in the last 20 years, but no matter how good the franchise or how exciting the idea, you still need to check out whether any opportunity will suit your own desires, abilities and dreams before you buy into it. You then need, like Ivy Joe, to apply the system properly to make a success of it. Read some advice from previous award-winners here.

So take your time, do your research and choose carefully. You’re starting in the right place – find out more about different franchises in our directory, read profiles of opportunities and find out How to spot a quality franchise. Get it right, and you could be a winner too!
