Recipients of the 2020 Franchisees’ Choice Designation
Recognized for Excellence in Franchising

Global Pet Foods is Recognized for Excellence in Franchising From the Canadian Franchise Association Two Consecutive Years 

(Toronto, Ontario) June 9th, 2020 – Global Pet Foods has been announced as a recipient of the CFA Franchisees’ Choice designation. This is the first year award winners have been

announced virtually amidst COVID-19. Now in its tenth year, the annual Franchisees’ Choice Designation Program recognizes Global Pet Foods for its accomplishment in receiving this designation.


The Franchisees’ Choice designees are CFA member franchise brands who voluntarily took part in an independently-administered survey. This year, more than 70 CFA member franchise brands participated in the survey. Franchisees were asked to assess their franchisor in key areas of the franchise business model, including the franchisee selection process, franchisee information package, leadership, business planning and marketing, training and support, as well as ongoing operations and the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee.

“Participating in the annual survey provides an important benchmark for Global Pet Foods in the key areas of franchise ownership and profitability,” says Jim Walker, Chairman of Global Pet Foods. “Setting the bar ensures we are growing in areas that are most important to our Franchisee’s year after year.”


In the due diligence process of investigating a franchise opportunity, speaking with existing franchisees about the opportunity being explored is essential. For prospective franchisees, the Franchisees’ Choice Designation identifies that a franchise brand has received a solid endorsement through its satisfaction ratings from its franchisees. The 2020 Franchisees’ Choice Designees are representative of the diversity of franchise opportunities and the standard of excellence of CFA members.


“Everyday Canadians sharing success and Growing Together™ is one of franchising’s core principles and what we celebrate year after year when we honour our Franchisees’ Choice Designees,” says Sherry McNeil, CFA President & Chief Executive Officer. “We extend our congratulations to all of this year’s Franchisees’ Choice Designees on receiving this remarkable vote of confidence from their franchisees.”
