Denver, CO (PRWEB) October 21, 2010
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Denver was recognized by its peers as Franchise of the Year at the brand’s annual meeting last week in Dallas.
The award recognizes the franchise that displays the best performance and profit numbers over the last year. In a sluggish economy, the Denver franchise grew its sales more than 20%.
Operating out of locations in Denver and Littleton, owner Steve Jusseaume was extremely proud to be selected from the hundreds of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing locations across North America.
“I am shocked, honored and humbled by this award,” Jusseaume said. “There is a lot of great competition among the Ben Franklins and I’m privileged to say that we’re number one this year. We’re a family business, and I accept the award on behalf of my family and my entire staff.”
National Benjamin Franklin Plumbing Vice President of Franchise Operations Chris Leach said Jusseaume and his team are leaders of the rapidly growing brand.
“Steve has mastered the Ben Franklin systems and procedures and applied them in his own way, which has allowed him to serve the Denver area exceptionally well this past year,” Leach said. “His proud representation of our values and all-around excellence has helped his company emerge as a model for all other Ben Franklins across North America.”
Benjamin Franklin Plumbing of Denver was founded by Jusseaume in 1978 as Deer Creek Plumbing and joined the nation’s Number 1 plumbing franchise organization in 2005. Company management includes Jusseaume’s wife Nancy and the couple’s daughters Meg and Kate, and the next generation promises that the firm will stay family owned for years to come.
