Adrian accepting his award with Hire A Hubby Franchise Ambassador Scott Cam and Former Australian Cricketer Nathan Bracken
Adrian Kelly is proud to be the owner of the title ‘Australian Hubby of the year’ – Hire A Hubby that is.
For the second year in-a-row Mr Kelly has risen above strong competition, almost 300 other Hire A Hubby Franchisees nationwide, to take out the overall Franchisee of the Year Award.
The coveted award was judged on gross sales improvement, margin improvement, expenses reduction, commitment to the brand and mentoring and community involvement.
Mr Kelly, a trained carpenter, said he was shocked to take out the prize two years running.
“It’s a huge honour and definitely one I was surprised to receive again this year,” he said.
Adrian said he and his team of ‘down to earth blokes’ were committed to providing good old-fashioned service to the community of South West Victoria.
“My goal has always been to establish my franchise as the property maintenance business of choice across the region, based on our superior workmanship and personal customer service.”
“Winning this award for the second year in-a-row definitely gives me confidence that I’m on the right track to reach that goal.”
Adrian’s business, which began as a simple ‘man in a van’ operation in 2006, has grown to employ seven full time staff operating a fleet of six vehicles and servicing hundreds of homes, offices and factories across the Warrnambool, Port Fairy, Portland, Dunkeld and Hamilton areas.
On top of his two consecutive ‘Franchisee of the Year’ award wins Mr Kelly’s business was recently recognised as ‘Best Regional Business’ and ‘Overall Business of the Year – All Categories’ at the Southern Grampians Shire Business Achievement Awards.
Hire a Hubby CEO Brendan Green said Adrian was thoroughly deserving of all the recognition.
“Not only has Adrian worked incredibly hard with his team to develop and maintain the highest levels of customer service, he is actively involved in mentoring new franchisees and also undertakes a range of charity work in his community,” he said.
“On top of all this Adrian still understands the importance of family and work/life balance. He operates his business during school hours only and ensures his employees never work on weekends.”
“Adrian is a great example of what can be achieved in the Hire A Hubby business and is a deserving back-to-back winner of our highest accolade.”
