A Commitment to Equal Opportunity
Supa Quick has never discriminated against Franchisees or franchise applicants on the basis of race, sex or any other arbitrary criteria. In fact, when Supa Quick was established in 1986, a number of its founder members were non-whites.
Today, more than 20% of all Supa Quick outlets are owned by so-called previously disadvantaged individuals, including Black, Coloured & Indian men and a number of Black, Indian & White women.
In addition, Supa Quick has provided a broad-based BEE platform for all of its franchisees. This platform has its foundation in the Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment Act, 2002 and is based on the Broad Based Scorecard approach and guidelines of the Department of Trade and Industry.
The Supa Quick Broad Based Scorecard approach places emphasis on a wider range of empowerment issues than just equity. It includes management development and placement, employment equity, skills development, procurement of goods and services from black empowered enterprises, black enterprise development and, corporate social responsibility.
In the interests of legitimacy and credibility, the Supa Quick Broad Based Scorecard is hosted by an independent rating company called mPowerratings. The franchisees' scorecards, each of which is independently audited and verified, can be accessed on www.mpowerratings.co.za.
At present, no fewer than 70% of all Supa Quick franchised outlets are considered to be satisfactory contributors to BEE (a definition endorsed by the Department of Trade and Industry), either by virtue of ownership or because of their levels of performance on the Broad Based BEE Scorecard. This number will continue to grow as more franchisees strive to improve their rating on the Scorecard.
