Tony Quinn Scoops 'Best First Year' Award from Recognition Express

It was double celebrations for Tony Quinn, owner of Recognition Express Newbury, who marked his first year running a franchise business by winning a national award for achievement. Tony scooped 'Best First Year' performance award at the company's annual conference, with the highest first year turnover of any Recognition Express franchise in the company's 27 year history.

A delighted Tony said: 'It's hard to believe that twelve months ago I was sitting in my newly furnished office staring at the phone, wondering if it would ever ring! It's been an exceptional first year of intensive networking to build the business from scratch to what is now a thriving 'one stop shop' for promotional merchandise. And we have ambitious plans for further growth, with our target to double turnover in our second year.'

Nigel Toplis, managing director of Recognition Express, said: 'Tony's commitment to best performance reaches all areas of his business, and this award is well-deserved for a fantastic first year.'

Recognition Express is a leading franchise organisation, specialising in corporate recognition goods such as name badges, branded products, business gifts and signs. With established franchises across the UK, Recognition Express plans to double the network to 90 franchisees within the next two to three years.
