Louisville, KY (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
FranNet, North America’s leader in franchise consulting services, recently held its annual Spring Meeting, a conference dedicated to honoring top-performing franchisees and franchisors, discussing better processes, reviewing best practices, and helping individuals across North America cope with the new economy, one that has left them securing their own futures through franchise business ownership .
The forum, held at the Hard Rock Hotel in the historic Gaslamp Quarter of San Diego, Calif., brought together more than 300 representatives of FranNet including franchisees, associates, and franchise partners, as well as representatives from the SBDC and lending partners. The three-day meeting was also an occasion to gather and celebrate the great success the 27-year-old company has seen, as 2013 marked the highest all-time sales record for FranNet.
People across North America continue to struggle with a sluggish job market. FranNet’s industry leading franchise matchmaking process has helped thousands of individuals discover business ownership through franchise opportunities.
“The Spring Meeting conference serves as a valuable opportunity to recognize our tremendous successes and engage our members by discussing our strategic plans moving forward,” said Jania Bailey, President and COO of FranNet. “We had colleagues come in from every part of North America as well as Europe to learn and share with us, and we’re very grateful that members of our team were able to come together to celebrate a monumental moment in our company’s history.”
Top-performing franchisees and emerging leaders were honored in a formal ceremony to congratulate those who have made incredible strides in their respective territories. Award recipients include:
Top Performance Award for Small Market - Katie Fagan of FranNet San Jose, Calif.
Top Performance Award for Medium Market - Jose Torres of FranNet South Florida
Top Performance Award for Large Market - Gary Prenevost of FranNet Southern Ontario, Canada
Additionally, franchisee Gary Prenevost and his associate Mike Martin of FranNet Southern Ontario set a FranNet all-time record sales mark in 2013.
“We continue to see incredibly high levels of interest from displaced corporate executives and managers who have lost faith in the possibility of securing another long-term job,” said Prenevost. “Self-employment through franchising is rapidly becoming the dominant alternative career path, which has historically demonstrated to be more successful than starting businesses from scratch. We're very honored to be recognized helping our clients achieve their success.”
