Inside Franchise Business: why not enter the MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards?Could this by your winning year? Celebrating amazing success gives everyone in a franchise chain a boost, so now's the time to put your brand in the spotlight.

The MYOB FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards for 2018 will be open for submissions soon.

One of last year's winners, Chris Mavris, general manager of Soul Origin, the 2017 Australian Emerging Franchisor of the Year, said the award was a huge achievement.

"To be recognised by our peers in such a way gives us real credibility in the industry and for them to say 'guys you've done a great job' means more to me than anything we've ever achieved so far," said Mavris.

Fastway Couriers was named the 2017 International Franchisor of the Year. Richard Thame, managing director for Aramex Australia and New Zealand which owns the Fastway Couriers brand, said "The award really recognises all the hard work that goes on not only in our franchise support office but in our 27 regional franchise locations across the country. 

"And of course, for all our courier franchisees. They're the ones who are getting up early every morning and working really long days to build businesses."
