A franchise that becomes a top brand has an innovative mindset and goes above and beyond to create the ultimate experience of satisfaction for both its customers and franchisees. To be a respected, distinguished franchise system means that the brand is thriving and continuing to grow. Such achievements should be recognized by the entire franchising industry, which is why the Canadian Franchise Association is proud to present its range of awards each year at CFA’s National Convention.

CFA Awards of Excellence
Awarded to those who received the highest scores from their franchisees, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising are the pinnacle of franchise achievement in Canada. To reflect the wide range of franchise opportunities and to enable franchise systems to be rated against their peers, entries are separated into Traditional Franchises, such as those with bricks and mortar locations, and Non-Traditional Franchises, such as those that are mobile or home-based. Within these categories, franchises are grouped based on the length of time the franchise has been operating. Each category has a gold, silver, and bronze winner. Here are the 2017 winners in each category:
