MEDIchair's Bas van Lankvelt COO and Harry Hignett, Director, Regional Support � East, present Franchise of the Year hardware to Dalas Forget, owner MEDIchair New Liskeard.

MEDIchair, North America's largest and fastest growing Home Medical Equipment (HME) franchise operation is pleased to announce that Dalas Forget, owner of MEDIchair Temiskaming in New Liskeard has been selected as the 2010 Franchisee of the Year. "MEDIchair's highest achievement award is presented to the franchisee who best exemplifies the company's core values of care, knowledge, value and customer service excellence," says Bas van Lankvelt, MEDIchair's COO. Winning this award requires an exceptional effort on the part of the franchisee who must blend outstanding business acumen with our core values. Van Lankvelt added: "To be considered for this honour, a franchisee must excel in all areas. They must provide an excellent customer service experience and they must truly be ‘Home Medical Equipment Specialists'. They also need to demonstrate a history of development and growth in sales, profitability and market penetration. Finally, franchisees must create value not only for themselves, but for their staff, their customers, and their peers. In addition to achieving significant sales growth and developing complementary business operations, Dalas has been instrumental in volunteering his time, knowledge and expertise to assist other MEDIchair franchises to achieve success in their markets. In particular, Dalas was an active member of the Board of Directors of MEDIchair Ontario as well as the company's National Advisory Council. He also teaches a college level course for Health Care Aids at Northern College." "It's no secret that this award is the most coveted that a MEDIchair franchisee owner can receive and we as a franchise are extremely proud and honoured to win it," says Forget. "At MEDIchair Temiskaming we have worked extremely hard for a number of years to be the best we can be.

While this award is presented to the franchisee, it is really a team award. I know that without the undivided effort and dedication from our 12 HME specialists, winning the Franchisee of the Year award would not have been possible."
