Jamaica Blue and Muffin Break franchise cafe brands are the most recent to list as high-performing brands through the Australian Franchise Rating Scale.
Ratings are given after an independent and fact-based examination is conducted across seven categories created to determine both transparency and performance of the brand.
Both brands accomplished a stable (4 star) rating, exhibiting a high level of transparency and franchise performance.
Serge Infanti the Managing Director of Foodco speaks about the recognition when the brands received the top rank of Australian franchise brands. “It is important for me to ensure that we benchmark our business against best practice, and work to ensure our partners have the best opportunity for success” Serge mentions.
“FRANdata carried out a credible review of our franchise system and I’m delighted with the outcome. That said we still have opportunities to be better and are committed to doing so.”
CEO of FRANdata Darryn McAuliffe, discussed that Foodco is one of the first considerable franchise hospitality brands to grasp the importance of having external independent assessment of its systems and processes.
“The review team was especially impressed with the firm financial impact a number of Foodco initiatives were providing to franchisees,” he said.
“Franchisees of both Jamaica Blue and Muffin Break also appreciate a superior level of support.”
“This recognition results from lots of hard work by so many over 30 years. Thanks to our staff, suppliers and of course our hardworking committed franchisees in whom all have helped us build brands we can be proud of”.
