The Franchisee of the Year Award is the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a franchisee. The award is presented to the franchisee who has consistently grown through proper training and management of their organization and has had a consistently high level of sales through quality, professional service.
“The Grounds Guys team is thrilled Chris and Juanita won the Franchisee of the Year award,” said Joshua Sevick, president of The Grounds Guys. “They have high standards and achieve a level of excellence that sets the standard for The Grounds Guys franchises.”
The Recruiter of the Year Award is the highest honour that can be bestowed upon a franchisee for their efforts in building a multi-truck operation. This award is presented to the franchisee who has demonstrated superior recruiting skills by attracting quality people to their franchise, providing an effective training program for their people, and has created opportunity within their franchise to which their people can grow.
The Top Gun Award goes to franchise owners who achieve top sales and reach operation benchmarks. The Top Gun recipients represent the top 10 percent of The Grounds Guys franchise owners across North America.
“The idea of ‘Top Gun’ was established by the Navy in the 1960s as a way to give training and credit to elite fighter pilots,” said Sevick. “Taking a page from the Naval Top Gun Program, each year we recognize our franchise leaders for their accomplishments and dedication to the trade. It takes dedication, hard work, expertise and commitment to reach the Top Gun goal and we are honoured to have these winners on our team.”
“We are honoured to receive these awards,” Chris Draaistra said. “We are committed to working hard every day to provide timely, courteous and professional lawn care and landscape solutions to commercial and residential clients that meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”
