Franchisees of the Year

Each year Sir Speedy and PIP recognize a recipient for their Franchisee of the Year Award. The selection criteria are based on a franchisee’s demonstration of a deep belief in the franchising concept, and promotion, support and encouragement of franchising and the franchise network.

In total, the center has been operating in the family for 44 years.

“We present more than 200 awards in many categories to recognize the sales achievements and accomplishments of leaders in our franchise network,” said Richard Lowe, President of Franchise Services. “Each and every one is well-earned, and I am honored to have such a talented and professional network of franchisees and salespeople in our organization.”
