(AU) Rob Clark Scoops 2011 FOTY Award

The world’s biggest mobile coffee franchise, Australian-born Cafe2U, has announced South Australia’s Regency Park local Rob Clark, as the winner of the 2011 Cafe2U National Franchisee of the Year Award.

The win comes as a welcome delight for Clark, who has won the Cafe2U State Award for South Australia for the past three years. He opened the first Cafe2U franchise in South Australia in 2008 with the desire to work for himself, having spent his previous career years in logistics as a pallet and stock controller.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling; I’m absolutely speechless with the win. We have a great group of franchisees working together in South Australia, helping each other out. I love the team and I am absolutely thrilled to be named the Cafe2U National Franchisee of the Year,” said Clark.

With a young family, Clark credited the importance of his wife’s support, and the ongoing professional encouragement from the Cafe2U team.

Cafe2U managing director Derek Black said “The Franchisee of the Year Award Program recognises those franchisees who have been both active within our community and have consistently delivered a high quality in both product and service to their customers. To achieve the distinction of being awarded the National Franchisee of the Year is recognition of Rob’s high standards of excellence."
