“The companies we recognize each year are the franchise brands in the marketplace today that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees.”

– Eric Stites, founder and CEO, Franchise Business Review

“There are thousands of franchise companies operating in North America, but many of them do not offer a solid investment opportunity. The companies we recognize each year are the franchise brands in the marketplace today that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Receiving a Franchisee Satisfaction Award demonstrates to potential franchise buyers, customers, corporate staff, and most importantly, your franchisees, that you care about their success.”

Since 2006, Franchise Business Review has been recognizing excellence in franchising with the Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. These prestigious awards are considered the gold standard in franchisee satisfaction. Each year, Franchise Business Review surveys thousands of franchise owners across North America to determine their levels of satisfaction with their franchise brand. We compile a list of the top franchises based on our Franchisee Satisfaction Index and publish a ranking of the top franchise opportunities based exclusively on owner satisfaction. Only franchises that survey with us and have high enough franchisee satisfaction are named a Top Franchise and receive a Franchisee Satisfaction Award.

There are no fees to enter. Participation in Franchise Business Review’s awards research is free and completely confidential.
