February 06, 2012 // Franchising.com // At the Cafe2U National Leadership Conference, held in Auckland New Zealand last weekend, a number of Cafe2U Franchisees were honoured and recognised for their performances during 2011.
The world’s biggest mobile coffee franchise, Australian-born Cafe2U, has announced South Australia’s Regency Park local Rob Clark, as the winner of the 2011 Cafe2U National Franchisee of the Year Award.
The honour was given to Rob Clark who was among over 100 delegates attending Cafe2U’s National Leadership Conference.
The win comes as a welcome delight for Clark, who has won the Cafe2U State Award for South Australia for the past three years. He opened the first Cafe2U franchise in South Australia in 2008 with the specific desire to work for himself, having spent his previous career years in logistics as a pallet and stock controller.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling, I’m absolutely speechless with the win. We have a great group of Franchisees working together in South Australia, helping each other out. I love the team and I am absolutely thrilled to be named the Cafe2U National Franchisee of the Year,” said Clark.
With a young family, Clark credited the importance of his wife’s support, and the ongoing professional encouragement from the Cafe2U team.
The Leadership Conference, attended by Cafe2U franchise partners and staff, enjoyed talks from inspirational conference keynote speakers UK author Phillip Hesketh and David McLean.
“The Franchisee of the Year Award Program recognises those Franchisees who have been both active within our community and have consistently delivered a high quality in both product and service to their customers. To achieve the distinction of being awarded the National Franchisee of the Year is recognition of Rob’s high standards of excellence,” Cafe2U Managing Director Derek Black said.
“Rob Clark is an excellent member of our Cafe2U team and is a well-deserving recipient of this award.”
With over 117 franchisees in Australia, and 180 worldwide, Cafe2U is the world’s largest mobile coffee franchise. Their second franchise will open in the United States in early 2012.
