About the Awards


Participation in our research is FREE and completely CONFIDENTIAL. We only publicize the brands that score high in franchisee satisfaction – so there’s no risk.

To be eligible, franchises must:

  • Be based in the U.S. or Canada
  • Have at least 10 franchisees open and operating for six months
  • Have franchisees participate in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey


There are no fees to enter. Participation in the survey is free and confidential. Franchise Business Review will only share the brands that choose to make their franchise satisfaction scores public.

What Your Clients Need to Know

The process to qualify for the awards is simple:

  1. Clients must survey their franchisees using our standard benchmarking survey.
  2. FBR will conduct the survey. All we need is a contact list of franchisees and a copy of the brand’s FDD.
  3. Your client will receive their Franchisee Satisfaction Index (FSI) score. (Detailed reports and access to the full data is available.)
  4. The FSI score qualifies them for all of our awards lists and reports published for the next 18 months.
