Griswold Home Care is honored to be named the recipient of the 2017 Franchisor of the Year by the AAFD (American Association of Franchisees and Dealers) at the AAFD’s 25th Anniversary Franchisee Leadership Summit and Annual Meeting. We are humbled by this award since we believe it recognizes the quality of our franchise organization.. The Franchisor of the Year Award is given to a franchisor that has demonstrated respect for the AAFD’s Fair Franchising Standards and excellent citizenship toward its franchisees. As AAFD Chairman Robert Purvin said, “The AAFD is honored to place Griswold Home Care on our pedestal to recognize great franchising.”
We also are proud that our own Meg Mairn, past President of the Griswold Home Care Franchise Association, is being recognized as a Franchisee Member of the Year.
Communication is the key to a great relationship and we communicate with our franchisees frequently to keep them up to date on key issues facing our industry. But more importantly, we listen to their issues and adapt our programs to reflect the rapidly changing business environment. We want to be known as a franchisor that treats our franchisees with fairness and respect, and invests in our franchisees success. Griswold Home Care’s new franchise agreement is an acknowledgement that the success of our common mission is dependent on Griswold Home Care and our franchisees working together in a spirit of mutual respect and cooperation.
Griswold franchisees and our caregivers are special people in an industry that combines compassion and commerce. They bring our theme Delivered with Heart to life every day. We receive this award in their honor and do so proudly.
Sincerely, Matt Murphy CEO
