Phoenix Honors Local Franchise Owners for Economic Impact

Phoenix Franchise Honors

Last week, 109 franchise owners from numerous industries in Phoenix were recognized for their impact on the city’s economy. Their success has spurred further interest in the local entrepreneurial scene, demonstrating the robustness of Phoenix’s economy. The accolades shone a light on the diverse range of successful business franchises in the city, ranging from fast food joints to fitness centers and more.

The top franchisees not only significantly contributed to the city’s economy, but also played a crucial role in job creation and fostering a thriving business environment. The feats achieved by these stand-out franchisees have set a high bar for aspiring entrepreneurs, motivating them to strive for similar levels of success.

Each awarded franchisee received a certificate of accomplishment and the honor of being featured on Phoenix’s official city website. This move is expected to inspire more entrepreneurs to explore franchising as a potential business venture.

The organizing committee bestowed praise upon the awarded franchisees, celebrating their ability to provide opportunities and make a positive impact on their communities. The recipients expressed gratitude for the honor, attributing their success to their collective teams’ efforts and vowing to continue delivering exceptional service and improving their businesses’ reach.

The nominees were selected based on their public service contributions, workforce development initiatives, and their role in promoting entrepreneurship. The U.S is home to nearly 806,000 franchise businesses, generating over $858 billion and providing 8.7 million jobs. These businesses typically offer their employees greater benefits, and franchises play a crucial role in sectors such as retail, food service, and health care.

Among the top 2023 franchisee recipients were Aaron Carpenter, Joanne Oh, Matt and Adam Saxton, and Angela Goodman. Special recognition was also given to Matt and Adam Saxton, Christy and Jim Boswell, and Don Ruggery Jr., all of whom made significant contributions to the franchise industry.

Recognizing the dedication and resilience of franchise owners through these awards not only boosts morale, but also fosters a sense of community within the industry. Such recognition increases public awareness of franchising’s significant economic contribution, encourages healthy competition, and inspires continuous improvement in the sector.
