Reshift Media Voted Best Franchise Marketing Firm at the 2023 Global Franchise Awards

Canadian-based digital marketing agency Reshift Media has been named the world's best franchise marketing firm at the Global Franchising Awards, held on February 25, 2023 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Global Franchise Awards recognizes excellence in franchising, with companies from around the world vying for the coveted designation. The awards are judged by an international panel of Franchise Association executives and industry experts. 

For more than a decade, Reshift Media has been developing digital marketing strategies, processes and technology custom-tailored to the unique needs of franchise organizations. Although headquartered in Canada, Reshift Media's footprint in the franchise community is vast, working with more than 200 clients in 20 countries across all aspects of digital marketing including software development, social media, search and website/mobile development. 

"As a Canadian-owned company, it is fantastic to be recognized on a global stage," said Steve Buors, CEO of Reshift Media. "The credit goes to our amazing team and incredible franchise companies we work with. We would also like to thank the Canadian Franchise Association for their partnership and support over the years. We really couldn't be happier." 

As a member of the International Franchise Association (IFA) and Canadian Franchise Association (CFA), Reshift Media has long been a supporter of, and advocate for, the franchise industry. The company has team members who volunteer on several CFA committees and on the association's board of directors. In addition, they participate in a number of franchise events and have hosted more than 100 free webinars and in-person sessions where they share digital marketing best practices, a vital resource for companies that needed support. Reshift also produces several industry-leading whitepapers and reports, including an annual franchise digital trends report that has been used as a resource for the industry. 

"Reshift is very deserving of this award," said Sherry McNeil, President & CEO of the Canadian Franchise Association. "They have been long-time supporters of franchising in Canada, and are known for coming up with new and creative solutions to help franchisors and franchisees." 

What's next for Reshift Media? In addition to several new initiatives underway in 2023, including significant enhancements to the company's award-winning Brand Amplifier suite of digital marketing products and the launch of a new marketing platform called Localfy, the firm is expecting to add  15-30 more team members and almost double its number of clients. .
