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.
