last updated 31/05/2021

May 2021 – After a year off, the Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards are back for 2021 in a new format which makes entry easier and more attractive than ever.

Since 1995, the annual Westpac New Zealand Franchise Awards have identified and celebrated outstanding franchise systems, franchisees, master franchisees and franchise affiliates. Winners have received not just recognition but massive promotion for their businesses. Having an award-winning brand really means something to franchisees, franchise buyers and the professional advisors who assist them. Past winners have come from all different industries and professions.

And it’s not all about winning – just entering will take you through a process to help you examine key areas of your business and help you identify both its strengths and areas for potential improvement. It’s also an opportunity for you and your team to review your progress together and celebrate your achievements.

With no awards in 2020 owing to Covid-19, the Franchise Association has taken the opportunity to revamp the format to make the Awards easier to enter while ensuring that they still have real meaning and value. The changes include:

  • New process
  • New questions
  • New judges
