Master Franchisee Award 2016/2017
Winner – Lawrence & Erica Pereira, Oporto New Zealand.
Although Oporto has been operating in NZ since 2001, Lawrence and Erica only took over the master franchise for New Zealand in August 2015. The couple have considerable retail and media experience.
Oporto currently has 11 stores in New Zealand and over 160 globally. The judges note that, ‘They have positioned themselves in the fresh/premium end of fast food and are currently working on the reimaging of the brand.’
