RETAIL food franchise CHOOKS fresh & tasty has consolidated its position as a leader in the industry recently recognised in the top 10 of WAâ€™s Rising Star 2010 Business Awards and named one of the top 10 franchises in Australia.
CHOOKS finished ninth in the WA Rising Star Business Awards and eighth in the top ten overall franchise list compiled by strategic marketing intelligence company 10 THOUSAND FEET.
CHOOKS fresh & tasty Chief Chook Steve Hansen was delighted with the recognition and said it was a proof of the success of the business model and that hard work pays rewards.
â€œItâ€™s been a long journey to get to this point,â€ he said. â€œInitially starting with two stores, itâ€™s pretty amazing to realize CHOOKS now has 40 stores throughout West Australia, Queensland and Tasmania.
â€œI think a big part of our success is the culture we have created at CHOOKS with suppliers and franchisees â€“ itâ€™s more like a family than a network of business owners.â€
It is the first time CHOOKS have made the top ten overall franchise list; finishing eighth in the categories of lifestyle, and support, and fifth in the rewards category. The top ten overall franchise list is based on surveys from franchisees Australia wide.
