North Harbour Celebrates Christmas with 400 CrestClean Friends
To celebrate Christmas and the end of 2014, the CrestClean North Harbour team hopped on a specially chartered bus and hit the road for Auckland. There they met up with CrestClean franchisees from Auckland Central, North, West, South and East – a total of nearly 400 people – for a superb meal, live entertainment, games for the kids and awards ceremony.
“We really enjoyed doing a combined Christmas function for this year with Auckland,” says Rachel Kumar. She and Neil Kumar are the Regional Directors for North Harbour and Whangarei. “Getting the team together to ride the bus was fun and the children loved it.”
The party was held on the 7th of December at the Glen Eden RSA, with catering provided by Pacific Star Restaurant, which is also owned by a CrestClean franchisee. Many people commented on the excellent food and superb service.
Live music jazzed up the scene and lucky dip presents kept the kids buzzing. Several awards were given in each regional team and certificates of completion for various training and skills courses were presented by Adam Hodge, CEO of Master Cleaners Training Institute. CrestClean’s Chairman of Directors Marty Perkinson, Managing Director Grant McLauchlan, National Sales Manager Chris Barker, and Regional Directors Dries Mangnus, Caroline Wedding, and Viky Narayan and their families also participated in the Christmas cheer.
“It was a fantastic time and it’s very good to see such a great turnout of franchisees and families,” says Neil. “We’re already looking forward to next year’s party!”
