The awards conclude a year of wins including being named ‘Australian Retailer of the Year’ and ‘Australian Retail Employer of the Year’.
The FCA noted that Specsavers had experienced extraordinary growth since its arrival in Australia in 2008.
“Since 2008, Specsavers has opened almost 300 stores from scratch. Just five years on, the stores collectively recorded AU$533 million in sales last year, representing 22 per cent year-on-year growth. As a franchisor it has shown the leadership, developed the systems and provided the support to enable more than 500 local people to go into business for themselves as Specsavers franchise partners,” a spokesperson for the FCA said.
