Unishippers wins 2011 franchise award
Unishippers Global Logistics, LLC has announced that it has received Franchise Business Review’s 2011 Franchisee Satisfaction Award at the International Franchise Association (IFA) 51st Annual Convention held in Las Vegas on February 13-16, 2011.
According to the information given, Unishippers helps provide small and mid-sized business owners with a complete line of shipping options all from one company. Partnering with regional and national shipping carriers, such as UPS®, Estes, and Saia, Unishippers offers these business owners many shipping options, attractive pricing, and community-focused customer service that its customers can’t receive anywhere else.
Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm, awarded 100 franchises in 16 industry categories for their system's excellence, as rated and reviewed by their own franchisees. Unishippers landed a spot on the Franchise Business Review’s Top 50 list for Top Large Class Franchises (systems with over 200 units), securing the #38 spot. Unishippers received the award under the category of Business Services.
Dan Lockwood, CEO of Unishippers, commented, “Receiving the Franchise Award at the annual IFA convention is a huge honor for our entire organization. It is extremely important to us to keep our franchisees happy and ensure they are able to offer the best services, products and lowest prices to their customers when it comes to their shipping needs.”
Founded in 1987 and headquartered in Salt Lake City, UT, Unishippers currently has a network of more than 285 franchise locations. Unishippers introduced 11 new franchise owners to the system in 2010 and with an aggressive growth strategy for 2011, it is planning, it says, to add eight franchise locations either opened or signed agreements throughout the country by the end of the year.
