Winners of the Best Emerging System Award in 2017/2018

We’re excited to announce that Zones Landscaping Specialists has (once again!) won the Best Emerging System Award 2017/2018 at the Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards. 

These were presented before an audience of 300 people on November 11th at a gala dinner in Auckland, marking the 23rd year of the prestigious awards. 

Winning this award for the second year in a row, Zones has been recognised for their growth as an effective emerging system, their ability to appraise franchisee’s individual capabilities, and for continually developing the franchise system & brand.

Having replicated the franchise structure of Zones’ sister company, Refresh, the organisation has proven to be a great emerging yet rapidly maturing franchise. 

‘Zones Landscaping has leveraged the learnings gained from its parent and sister organisations to good effect, and this was well presented in their entry,’ the judges said. 

Both Zones and Refresh were also nominated for the Best Franchise System under the Home Services category this year, and Refresh was Highly Commended for the Digital Innovation Award, which rewarded companies that implemented disruptive digital efforts to benefit their franchise systems. 

Congratulations to the Zones team!
