EDMONTON, ALBERTA - (Marketwired - May 26, 2014) - Booster Juice is proud to announce that Dale S. Wishewan, President and CEO of Booster Juice, has been inducted into the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Global Hall of Fame. On May 22, over 1,000 guests from around the World gathered in Shanghai, China, for the EY Strategic Growth Forum where the induction of Dale into the Hall of Fame took place.
"It was a huge honour to be recognized with some great entrepreneurs from around the world. As I looked at a list that included Mario Moretti Polegato, Geox, and Herbert V. Kohler Jr., Kohler, I thought it would be amazing if I can make Booster Juice as globally successful as these brands," said Dale. He added, "The goal 14 years ago was to open multiple locations but to be recognized on an international basis and to have stores in numerous countries is quite an accomplishment."
The EY Entrepreneur Of The Year Hall of Fame is an elite corps of men and women who have been recognized for their exceptional entrepreneurial achievements.
In the more than 25 years that the EY Entrepreneur Of The Year awards have honored entrepreneurial excellence in business and outstanding entrepreneurs have been recognized for their vision, innovation, courage, and leadership in building and growing successful businesses-businesses that influence the way we live, the products and services we depend on, and the economic vibrancy of our local communities and global markets.
The first Booster Juice was opened in Sherwood Park, Alberta in November 1999 by Dale S. Wishewan, Booster Juice President & CEO, a guy who thought it would be a good idea to sell smoothies in the middle of a Canadian winter. Turns out, taste trumps temperature, and today there are over 300 locations worldwide. Booster Juice serves its intensely loyal customers a delicious, convenient and healthy alternative to fast food. In addition to their signature smoothies, their menu offers fresh-squeezed juices, hot food, and snacks. In 2013 Dale was awarded the prestigious title of EY Prairies Entrepreneur of the Year. A vibrant brand that attracts an active clientele, Booster Juice was honoured with a Technomic 2013 Consumers' Choice Award and inducted into the Canadian Franchise Association Hall of Fame in 2014.
