It’s a CleanTastic Sweep at the NZ Franchise Awards
It was a clean sweep for CleanTastic at this year’s New Zealand Franchise Awards. CleanTastic is the commercial cleaning franchise with almost 400 franchisees across New Zealand and Australia who won the Export Award, Franchise System of the Year and the coveted Westpac Franchise Supreme Award.
Cleantastic’s Managing Director, Stuart Beadle says, “Even though we are a New Zealand company we have been focusing on exporting our franchise to the larger Australian market, we are already planning our entry into the European and Canadian markets. Winning the Export Award was a fantastic endorsement for our long-term export strategy.”
Cleantastic provides franchisees with training, branding, relationship management, customer service and even finds customers for their clients.
Beadle says, “This market is highly competitive so we are having to continually innovate to stay ahead of the competition. We are already looking at a new value add franchise system called Blis, which will help grow our position in all our markets.”
“Winning the Westpac Franchise Supreme Award was the real highlight of the Awards event as every aspect of our business was carefully measured,” says Beadle. “This year all entrants were benchmarked against a very rigorous, international best practice methodology, so we were very happy to come out ahead against such strong nominations.”
“All our banking needs are currently met by Westpac. It has been critical for CleanTastic to have a close relationship with a financial partner and franchise friendly bank that really understands our industry and my unique business. But more than that, we are also an exporting business so we have also been able to tap into Westpac’s international/export knowledge and expertise,” says Beadle.
