Local businesswoman Estelle Logan, national franchisor of V.I.P Home Services NZ has been inducted into the Franchise Association of New Zealand (FANZ) Hall of Fame as a Life Member.
At this year’s Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards, the Mauku woman was awarded the achievement along with two other nominees.
In awarding the Life Membership certificates, FANZ Chairman Brad Jacobs noted that without people like Estelle, franchising in New Zealand and the Franchise Association would not be in the healthy position they are today.
“As the recent Franchising New Zealand 2017 survey confirmed, New Zealand is the most franchised country in the world. It is thanks to the efforts of the people who have given so generously of their time and expertise over many years that we have achieved this status,” he said.
On accepting the award Estelle acknowledged her passion and commitment to franchising was just as strong as when she and husband John first joined V.I.P. over 22 years ago. “I want to acknowledge the support of my husband John and family, who are part of the V.I.P. family, who enabled me to fulfil my duties as Co-National Franchisor, FANZ board member and Chairman, and pledge my dedication to best practice in franchising,” she said.

More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too. If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
