Newry based business Zen Day Spa was recognised recently in Croke Park as one of the Best-in-Class Irish business, “All-Star Business” award, which was presented to local entrepreneur Lisa McCrink by Dr Briga Hynes and Senator Aodhan O’Riodain.
Business All-Stars award and accreditation quality mark signified Zen Day Spa as ‘progressive indigenous all-Ireland business’, that has met the highest quality standards of verified performance, trust and customer-centricity in rigorous selection criteria throughout all of Ireland.
This accreditation is overseen by the prestigious All-Ireland Business Foundation, a national body responsible for identifying an accrediting Best in Class Irish Businesses as Business All-Stars.
Dr Hynes commented, “This accreditation is now held by over 350 firms, identifying small and medium businesses who operate to the highest quality standards in Ireland. Each business goes through at least two interviews and scored on every part of the process against a set of metrics.
“The Foundation panel evaluated Zen Day Spa’s company’s background, trustworthiness and performance and we spoke to their customers, employees and vendors. We also anonymously approached the company as a customer and report back on the experience.
“We believe in a marketplace where Best-in-Class companies are clearly identifiable and where consumers can purchase with confidence from All-Star accredited businesses. The Foundation promotes its accredited businesses to Irish consumers, giving them confidence and reassurance when making their purchasing decisions,” she added.
Zen Day Spa is a welcoming haven of tranquillity and calm situated in the heart of Newry’s City Centre away from the hustle and bustle of busy everyday lives. Zen Day Spa employs specialists that are counted among the best in their field and consistently provide excellent 5-star customer service. Z
Lisa McCrink from Zen Day Spa told Newry Times, “We are thrilled to receive the All-Star Business Medal and Accreditation Certification. The accreditation process gave me the opportunity to reflect on our brand story, achievements, how we created a unique Zen experience to date and ambitious growth strategy over the past three years.
“With the recent property development earlier this year, we have trebled in size, with now ten treatment rooms and more relaxation space for clients to enjoy the zen experience”.
She added, “The opportunity to receive first-hand feedback from the panel, our employees, customers and suppliers through the reference check round was particularly insightful.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Foundation for recognising the hard work we have invested to help us achieve this accreditation; also thank the Zen Manager Catherine and my gorgeous team for their heartwarming dedication and passion in delivering the highest treatment standards and always embodying the Zen ethos to benefit the wellness of our clients.”
