Pop-A-Lock recognized in the CFA Awards of Excellence

Pop-A-Lock Canada is the Silver winner of the 2019 Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) Awards of Excellence in Franchising.  The award was presented to Pop-A-Lock on April 8, 2019 during the Awards Gala at the 28th annual CFA National Convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario.


Considered the pinnacle of franchise achievement in Canada, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising are given annually to franchise systems that have demonstrated superior franchise relations, leadership, training and communications.


“Pete Crouse, the President/CEO of Pop-A-Lock is pleased to see the company recognized in the franchise industry based on the organization’s franchise network success across Canada.  We truly appreciate the work our franchisees and their employees do to help Canadians everyday in their communities.”


This year, more than 70 CFA member franchise brands participated in the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising program. Sponsored by the CFA and administered by the Portage Group, a third-party research firm, the winning franchise systems were determined based on the results of a survey completed by participating brands’ franchisees about their experiences and levels of satisfaction with the system.


“The CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising celebrates the best of Growing Together™ and the symbiotic partnership between franchisor and franchisees,” McNeil continues. “Regardless of the size or concept, a strong relationship between the franchisor and franchisees is vital to a franchise system’s success. We congratulate all Awards of Excellence recipients for their achievements – they’ve demonstrated they are the very best in Canadian franchising in 2019.”

Open exclusively to CFA franchise system members, the CFA Awards of Excellence in Franchising competition includes seven categories to enable franchise systems to be rated against their peers. Entries are separated into Traditional Franchises (i.e. those with bricks and mortar locations) and Non-Traditional Franchises (i.e. mobile, home-based, etc.), then grouped based on number of franchisees.


Systems with the highest scores in each category are recognized with Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. The prestigious CFA Award of Excellence in Franchising Grand Prize is given to a Gold winner in the Traditional category and a Gold winner in the Non-Traditional category.
