Clean Planet Hawke’s Bay, Driving Miss Daisy win big at national awards

When Roy Boonen started his cleaning franchise Clean Planet Hawke’s Bay over a decade ago, he wanted to introduce a clean and green business to the industry.

The franchise has grown leaps and bounds since – with almost 200 commercial contracts including 38 schools across the Bay – and was honoured this week with two prestigious awards.

Boonen and colleague Nicola Moore scooped the two awards in their respective categories at the nationwide Westpac NZ Franchise Awards held over Zoom on Sunday.

The event celebrates the best of the best when it comes to franchises and franchisees across the country.

Everything from cafés and convenience stores, to cleaners and hair salons, to trades and property maintenance businesses were vying for the awards, making the achievement all the more impressive.

Another Hawke’s Bay company also picked up a top award, Driving Miss Daisy.

Driving Miss Daisy started in Hawke’s Bay and now boasts franchises across the country and offers “companion” driving services including for the elderly and the disabled.
