Paramount wins three Westpac NZ Franchise Awards

For Paramount Services

Our commercial cleaning franchisor client Paramount Services has won three categories in the Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards 2019: Vikas and Divy Kanojiya – Business to Business Franchisee of the Year, Helen Lei and Stanley Siew – Small Business Franchisee of the Year, and Avi Rao – Field Manager of the Year over $500,000.

Timaru-based Vikas and Divy Kanojiya became Paramount Services franchisees in May 2018. By employing staff the couple combine managing their business with their day jobs and raising their two young children. “In a short time Vikas and Divy had experienced amazing levels of growth through hard work and a clear vision of how their growth will increase over the coming years,” said the judges.

Aucklanders Helen Lei and Stanley Siew bought their Paramount Services franchise in April 2018. The judges noted, “Helen and Stanley have rapidly grown their business. Some of the key strengths are their planning around business performance from a financial and process improvement perspective. They actively pursue new business and improve their services.”

Avi Rao’s role includes service provision to clients, usability and applicability of products, mentoring and assisting franchisees, and determination of client requirements and satisfaction. “This has led to him becoming the go-to person for all parties he has connection with, with outcomes of increased productivity, profitability and satisfaction,” said the award judges.

Paramount Services managing director Galvin Bartlett was rapt with the successes. “Our biggest achievement in 40 years of business has been giving thousands of people from all sorts of backgrounds a leg up in the world. That’s what our business is about – helping people to make a living, to look after their families and do the things they want to do in their lives. The franchise model has let us do that.”

Paramount Services won the Supreme Award for Franchise System last year and also in 2015 and 2008.
