Franchise of the Year

Steamatic franchise owners and employees from around the world convened in Fort Worth, TX for the 2018 Steamatic International Convention June 27 - June 30.  The convention’s “Golden Opportunity!” theme perfectly fit the info-packed and high energy event.

The convention speakers included industry leaders from Contractor Connection, Alacrity, CLEANFAX, and Violand Management Associates. The four-day agenda was also filled with informative breakout sessions, franchise lead panels, and focused training. The Wednesday event included a full-day international meeting attended by owners from eight countries.

Steamatic’s President, Stefan Figley, opened Saturday morning’s general session by providing the future vision for the Steamatic system. “Increased tools & resources from franchise support, revamped franchise development and growth are all part of the Steamatic future,” said Figley during his address.

The convention concluded with an awards banquet where several franchise owners were recognized for their performance and time with the franchise system. The top recognition of the night, the Franchise of the Year award was presented to Marcus Benoit, owner of Steamatic of the Red River Valley in Fargo and Grand Forks, North Dakota. The Franchise of the Year award was introduced to acknowledge and reward the exceptional work and the results gained by the trailblazers in the face of an increasingly competitive market.

Stefan Figley described that Mr. Benoit embodies the “Steamatic elite by how he represents the brand and supports his office as well as others within the Steamatic network.” As a Steamatic franchisee for the past 20 years, Mr. Benoit was recognized by Chairman Bill Sims and President Stefan Figley. After accepting the award, Marcus Benoit said, “It was an honor and privilege for our team to be recognized as the 2017 Steamatic Franchise of the Year; it is truly a tribute to all the hard work and dedication of our employees and the continued support from our loyal customers. On behalf of the entire Steamatic family in Fargo and Grand Forks we want to express our sincere appreciation for all your past and continued support.”
