Barbeques Galore Bundaberg's David Carter and Noreen Brier have thanked the local community after being named National Franchisee of the Year.
David said the win was a pleasant surprise and they were “stoked”, and the achievement was only made possible because of the support from the local community.
“This is an award for Bundaberg,” David said.
“Our success reflects the support we receive from the people living in and visiting the area.
“We will certainly not be resting on our laurels, with a number of innovations already in the pipeline.”
David said the Barbeques Galore award encompassed several criteria including customer service, sales, store presentation and business management.
“We work hard but enjoy what we do,” he said.
“Thanks must go to our great staff, customers and supporters, who have all contributed to our winning of this prestigious award.
“We endeavour to meet our customers’ needs, providing specialised advice, backed up with proven product.
“We are prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that our customers have a product that will fulfil and hopefully surpass their expectations.”
David and Noreen moved to the Bundaberg Region at the beginning of 2017 and said they “absolutely love the area” and have since become very involved in the local community.
“We are very community focussed and enjoy supporting and being involved in local events (and) activities.
“We live, work and relax here and are committed to contributing to Bundaberg region’s future growth and prosperity.”
It’s not the first significant award Barbeques Galore Bundaberg has won after they received a Performance Excellence Award last year.
