On 15th June 2018, Banjo’s CEO and Managing Director, Jessica Saxby was awarded the Franchise Woman of the Year Award in the Vic/Tas division of the Excellence in Franchising Awards.
This award is for excellence in personal and professional achievements by a woman in the franchising sector.
BIG congratulations to Jessica (below centre) on a well-deserved achievement. She has worked hard to develop Banjo’s into the successful brand it is today!
“I thrive on helping people to grow in their role and push them to get where they want to go. We have people who’ve gone from working in a store or being a baker to running their own franchise or onto senior operational management roles” says Jessica.
“Baking has always been male dominated and I actively encourage women to get involved in the process and develop in the industry. I think women need to encourage and support each other because there are not as many of us and we have a role to play. I’m proud if this award makes me a role model for other women”.
Following her success, Jessica is now a qualified finalist for the MYOB FCA National Excellence in Franchising Awards happening later in the year.
