Sorrento franchisees Ian and Irene Hughes have topped the PoolWerx national awards, winning the Franchisee of the Year as well as taking home the Western Australia Franchisee of the Year, Perth North Franchisee of the Year and Business-to-Business Excellence awards.

PoolWerx CEO John OÕBrien said Ian and Irene were worthy recipients of the awards and ought to be proud of their efforts. “The National Franchisee of the Year Award is only given to franchisees who have excelled in every single element of their business including customer satisfaction, results-to-plan, sales growth, support of the franchisee system and the PoolWerx brand,” he said. “The competition was fierce but Ian and Irene stood out in all aspects and thoroughly deserve the win.”

The couple have been operating the business since 2003. Ian Hughes said “Winning the overall Franchisee of the Year on its own is such an honour not to mention the other awards.”
