Garden City Couple Clean Up Home Services

Christchurch, 19 November, 2001 – An enterprising Christchurch couple have swept up the local home cleaning market by winning a major award and almost winning another.


Green Acres’ master franchisees for the Christchurch area, Malcolm and Elizabeth Thompson are winners. Not only have they won the Green Acres’ 2001 Territory award, but have now been judged second runners up in the Franchise Association of New Zealand’s (“FANZ”) Master Franchise category.

“What makes us so happy as second runners up in FANZ’s annual awards, is that we are competing directly against a significant Master Franchisor,” says Malcolm Thompson. “We are only one of sixty Master Franchisees in the Green Acres’ group, but still managed to almost win against a Master Franchisor that represents the backing of an entire Australian franchise system.”

Malcolm and Elizabeth Thompson manage eleven cleaning franchises in the Christchurch region, and start their twelfth tomorrow. The couple have been Green Acres’ Master Franchisees for four years and in that time have worked with their team of operators to deliver the best home cleaning services to their Christchurch customers.

“Customers just love Malcolm and Elizabeth,” says Green Acres’ director Andrew Chisholm. “They are a honest, hard working team that always strives to deliver a superior service for their customers no matter how big or small the task. People in Christchurch know they can always trust and rely on Malcolm and Elizabeth’s Green Acres team to do an excellent home cleaning job every time.”
