About Franchise Business Review's Awards

Since 2006, Franchise Business Review has been recognizing excellence in franchising with the FBR Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. Our awards are considered the gold standard in franchisee satisfaction.

Each year, we survey thousands of franchise owners across North America to determine their levels of satisfaction with their franchise brand. We compile a list of the top franchisees each year based on our Franchisee Satisfaction Index and publish a ranking of the top franchise opportunities overall and in various sectors based exclusively on owner satisfaction.

We have won a ton of awards throughout the whole seven years we have been franchising–Entrepreneur magazine, Inc., etc–but the one we really look for the most is yours.
