USA-based carpet cleaning franchise Chem-Dry has announced the winner of its International Sub Franchise of the Year 2009 award. Peter Foster, a UK-based Chem-Dry franchise owner, received the award at the Chem-Dry International Convention in Hawaii, USA. Peter operates his Finesse Chem-Dry business with his wife Lisa and was awarded the UK Chem-Dry Franchise of the Year in June 2008.

Peter Foster said: 'This is a very proud moment for Lisa, me and the Finesse team; to say the last 12 months have been fantastic is an understatement. I regard being nominated as an achievement, but to win this award is overwhelming and very humbling. The UK Chem-Dry franchise network is blessed with a knowledge sharing culture and we are very lucky to have some dear friends within Chem-Dry, who we can approach, when advice is needed. When I look back at the past 10 years, at times it hasn't been easy, but recognition like this makes it all the worthwhile.'

Mark Galsworthy, Franchise Director of Chem-Dry Franchising, commented: 'We are absolutely delighted that a UK Chem-Dry franchise has been recognised and won the International Sub Franchise of the Year Award for 2009. The Finesse Chem-Dry team are great role models for other aspiring Chem-Dry franchises, they exemplify what Chem-Dry is all about working tirelessly hard for the business, with enthusiasm to burn, continually striving for improvement and always willing to mentor new franchise members. On behalf of the UK Chem-Dry Franchise Network, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Peter and the Finesse team on a fantastic achievement, this awards is thoroughly deserved.'
