ComForCare’s Pittsburgh Franchise Owner Named a Franchisee of the Year Award Winner by the International Franchise Association
September 25, 2018 // Franchising.com // DETROIT - Anna Zaydenberg, owner of a ComForCare franchise in Pittsburgh, was named a Franchisee of the Year award winner by the International Franchise Association (IFA), the world’s oldest and largest organization representing franchising worldwide. The award recognizes franchisees from across the country who have demonstrated excellence within the franchising community.
“IFA is proud to recognize Anna for her extraordinary story and success,” said Robert Cresanti, IFA President and CEO. “Franchise businesses are an engine of economic growth across America, in a large part due to the hard work of tens of thousands of franchise business owners like Anna. As Washington looks to continue our economic growth, policymakers would do well to remember that franchising is making a difference across our country.”
Zaydenberg was recognized at IFA’s Franchise Action Network Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. on September 5th, which brought together more than 400 franchise business leaders to raise awareness with policymakers on the industry’s continued successes and economic contributions.
Since 2008, Zaydenberg has operated the ComForCare in Pittsburgh, which has grown to be the largest non-medical home care provider in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. She currently serves on ComForCare’s Franchise Advisory Council (FAC) for the 2018-2019 term, providing input on how to improve the franchise system. And in addition to winning several system awards, like ComForCare’s 2017 Franchise of the Year, Zaydenberg received the 2017 EY Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Community Service for Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
“It’s such an honor to receive this award from the IFA,” said Zaydenberg. “I love the opportunities I get to serve my community through ComForCare every single day. Franchising has allowed me to build relationships with so many different kinds of people and challenged me in figuring out how I can fully serve my clients so they can live their best life possible.”
