The annual FCA Awards, which were held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, recognise and reward excellence and provide a platform for companies to showcase the amazing work they are doing in the franchising sector.
The FCA Marketing Award is for excellence in strategy and execution of a marketing program within a franchise system. The Newcastle-based national retailer came out on top in a competitive category of finalists, including Boost Juice, Battery World, Roll’d and Kwik Kopy.
