Franchise Investors and Private Equity

Protect Your Franchise Investment

Franchisee satisfaction is a primary leading indicator of current system health and a predictor of future performance and long-term system growth.

If the brand you’re investing in doesn’t provide you with recent, detailed, third-party research on their franchisees’ satisfaction, it could be a red flag.

And you could be putting your investment at risk.

Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction research measures franchisee satisfaction and engagement and provides investors and private equity firms with objective, reliable data on the health of a franchise system. Know what you’re getting into before you invest.

I think everyone should be surveying with FBR. If I meet a franchisor who doesn’t survey with FBR, the first thing I’d ask them is, “What are you afraid of?”
