ShelfGenie, a franchised company that designs, builds and installs customized Glide-OutÂ® shelving systems for existing cabinets, recently bestowed two franchisees with prestigious awards at the company’s 2011 national convention in Atlanta, Ga. on June 11. Seattle, Wash.-based franchisee Alan Regala was named Rookie of the Year, which is presented to an owner involved in the company less than a year, while Boston, Mass.-based franchisees Jeff Cohen and Raffi Iskenderian were recipients of the highest honor of Franchisee of the Year. Both awards are reserved for owners who show exceptional performance, contribution to the system and active community involvement.
“I am extremely honored to receive the Rookie of the Year award, especially amongst other deserving new owners this year,” said Regala. “ShelfGenie has provided me with the opportunity of a lifetime, allowing me to combine my passion for innovative ideas with my dreams of owning my own business. I hope to continue making positive contributions to the company.”
