Research from 25,000 Military Veterans Reveals Brands with the Highest Owner Satisfaction

November 8, 2017 – Portsmouth, NH – Franchise Business Review, a national franchise market research firm that provides the only rankings of franchises based exclusively on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance, announces the release of the 2017 Top 100 Franchises for Veterans.

According to Franchise Business Review’s research, one in eight franchise businesses in North America is owned by a veteran. To identify the top brands among them, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months of data from approximately 25,000 veteran franchise owners representing over 250 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.

“The reality is that two-thirds of the thousands of franchise opportunities available today are simply average or below average opportunities,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “That’s the whole reason we do what we do, which is help prospective franchisees understand which franchises are the top opportunities based on the actual performance and satisfaction of franchise owners. Franchisee satisfaction data is even more important to prospective franchisees on active military duty who may be conducting the necessary due diligence from afar.”

The 100 companies named in this year’s report on Veterans in Franchising received the highest ratings from the veterans that own them in Franchise Business Review’s independent satisfaction survey, which covers financial opportunity, training and support, leadership, operations and product development, core values, general satisfaction, and the franchisee community.

Brands that made the list span all sectors, sizes, and investment levels, including Snap-on Tools, Kona Ice, Sport Clips, Soccer Shots, U.S. Lawns, and FASTSIGNS. You can see the full list at:
