Gutter-Vac names their 2012 National Franchisee of the Year
Gutter-Vac has named Peter Hayne their 2012 National Franchisee of the Year, thanks to his hard work and dedication in the mobile cutter cleaning business.
Gutter-Vac Managing Director, Warren Ballantyne, said Hayne was a worthy recipient of the award and an inspiration to other franchisees.
“The Franchisee of the Year award is reserved for franchise partners who have excelled in aspects of the business including business growth, sales growth and support of the franchise system and the Gutter-Vac brand,” said Ballantyne.
“Peter is one of our original franchisees who has established a very successful operation in the ACT and he is a model franchisee for others in the network and ought to be very proud of this achievement.”
Hayne said the award was a testament to the solid business model, created by Gutter-Vac, and doing the basics well.
“When I opened Gutter-Vac ACT South eight years ago, gutter cleaning in Canberra was dominated by fly-by-nights and gardeners climbing ladders to clean by hand or making a mess with blowers,” he said.
“Gutter-Vac introduced the area to specialty-trained gutter care technicians equipped with the technology to allow the job to be done properly and safely and this is what has separated us from the market and continued our growth since 2004,” said Hayne.
Peter Hayne’s Gutter-Vac business had finished ahead of 45 other gutter cleaning franchises across the country including areas in business growth, turnover and community involvement.
The home maintenance franchises has seen the growing demand for more gutter services in ACT’s South, which had led Hayne to employ two full-time gutter cleaning technicians in order to allow him the time to take on more of a manger role and focus the growth of his operation.
“With the support of two highly-skilled staff who I can trust to deliver the same high quality service I’ve built my business around, I now have the time to focus on client relations, fine-tuning the service, keeping abreast of new industry regulations and generating new business,” said Hayne.
Peter Hayne, and his wife, Michelle, have also been involved with the ACT Schools Mountain Bike Championships for the past few years in which Hayne has coached and managed the local soccer teams at the Weston Creek Soccer Club.
