In August 2018, over 50 Natrad stores from around Australia met for their annual National Conference and Awards evening. Here the highest performing Natrad workshops in Australia are recognised for success and excellence across a range of criteria including shop and staff presentation, marketing, sales and service.
This year’s Conference was held in Hong Kong, at the prestigious Cordis Hotel and was attended by workshop owners and operators from all across Australia and New Zealand.
This year 4 out of 5 State winners for Natrad Franchise of the Year were Heavy Duty Specialist stores. Natrad HDS Dalby, located in the Darling Downs region of Queensland was the State winner for Queensland, and went on to win the National Franchise of the Year award.
State winners for 2018 are Natrad Kalgoorlie (WA), Natrad Albury-Wodonga (VIC), Natrad Granville (NSW) and Natrad Wingfield (SA).
