ecowash mobile has won the NAB Top Franchise Award at The SmartCompany Awards 2008.

Managing director Jim Cornish said it was a huge vote of confidence for the company, beating contenders such as Boost Juice.

“The key to our success has been the calibre of people in our network and their attention to detail at the customer service level. Customers adopted us initially from an environmental standpoint but remain loyal year in, year out, because of the quality of our work and the convenience of our business model,” he said.
