2023 Franchisees’ Choice Award 

New Creations was named as a recipient of the Franchisees’ Choice designation on April 3, 2023, during the Awards Gala at the 2023 Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) National Convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario. This is the 13th year for the Franchisees’ Choice Designation Program, and New Creations was honoured for its accomplishment in receiving this designation.

The Franchisees’ Choice designees are CFA member franchise brands who voluntarily took part in an independently-administered survey. This year, more than 60 CFA member franchise brands participated in the survey. Franchisees were asked to assess their franchisor in key areas of the franchise business model, including the franchisee selection process, franchisee information package, leadership, business planning and marketing, training and support, as well as ongoing operations and the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee.

In the due diligence process of investigating a franchise opportunity, speaking with existing franchisees about the opportunity being explored is essential. For prospective franchisees, the Franchisees’ Choice Designation identifies that a franchise brand has received a solid endorsement through its satisfaction ratings from its franchisees. The 2023 Franchisees’ Choice Designees are representative of the spectrum of franchise opportunities and the diversity and standard of excellence of CFA members.

“As a family-owned & operated business, our number one priority has been to ensure that New Creations is a business that benefits everyone involved (customer / franchisee / environment / franchisor). We believe that by doing business with this long-term, fair approach, everyone comes ahead in the end. To win awards like these is very special, and it validates that doing business this way works. Thank you to our wonderful group of franchise owners who believed in this concept long before any public recognition or awards were ever won. ”

– Josh Stevenson, President of New Creations.
