Franchise of the Year (Top Three) – Coromandel

Coromandel Franchise Among New Zealand Building Elite

Jennian Homes Coromandel is building on its foundations as a consistent top performer by being named as a Franchisee of the Year finalist.

The Whangamata-based franchise was announced as one of three finalists for the supreme award at Jennian Homes’ annual awards evening in Fiji, marking the conclusion of the organisation’s national conference.

The other finalists were Jennian Homes Otago and Jennian Homes Nelson Bays, with Jennian Homes Otago named the overall winner.

Owned and operated by Stephen and Haley Trebilco, the franchise is well respected in the Thames-Coromandel/Hauraki area not only as a great building company but also for the community involvement and support it provides the region.

Jennian Homes Coromandel owner Stephen Trebilco is honoured to be among the top echelon of the 30 franchises operated around the country.

“We take pride in ensuring all our homes are at a consistent high standard and are very pleased this has been recognised,” says Mr Trebilco.

“We are a home-building company and our priority is service and great construction so we continue to attract repeat customers. We do this through constant communication with our loyal sub-contractors and ensuring our timelines are met, and high standards of workmanship are maintained.”

Mr Trebilco says the achievements are a testament to a team that continues to step up to the plate and deliver top quality service within the local community.

“We’ve worked really hard to build a reputation for excellence in customer service, design and craftsmanship in every home we build, so being recognised as one of the best in our business is both reassuring and motivating.”

“The team have worked hard, they’ve had great results and they’ve really deserve these accolades.”
All Jennian franchisees are benchmarked by a rigorous scoring programme which details financial and non-financial indicators, including local market share, use of national support office systems and processes, as well as community involvement.

Jennian Homes chief operating officer Aidan Jury says the Coromandel franchise is deserving of its finalist status as its ability to be a consistent top performer raises the standard within the organisation.
“We are proud of the growth and progress of all our regional franchisee teams. However, once again Jennian Homes Coromandel excelled in all expectations,” says Mr Jury.

“They have worked hard to establish themselves as a consistent performer within Jennian Homes, are an integral part of the local Thames Coromandel/Hauraki community, and are reaping the rewards of this.

As well as being a high-achieving business, the Coromandel franchise is very involved in the community, supporting local netball and organising the Coromandel leg of the Jennian Homes Mother’s Day Fun Run/Walk – an annual event that aims to raise funds for the Heart Foundation and generate awareness about women’s heart health.

This year’s Coromandel leg saw more than 200 people take part in the 5km run/walk on May 14 (Mother’s Day) in Whitianga.
