Alan Richards was founder of the iconic Bounty Shop in Frankston’s City Centre. Regularly credited on GTV 9’s In Melbourne Tonight throughout the 1960s, the Bounty Shop boomed, employing up to 50 people at its peak. Selling style, he believed in service — still a guiding principle of the business today. By sharing profits with his employees, Alan progressively sold his business to his staff, some of whom trade there successfully today. Throughout his business life, Alan was a passionate advocate of Frankston, who served as a Frankston Business Chamber President as well as a high-profile campaigner for the municipality. This award honours him, and all who do business in Frankston.
