In a survey of over 1,000 franchisors, Franchise Business Review was ranked a top supplier for quality and value of services in two categories. 

October 18, 2023 – Portsmouth, NHFranchise Business Review, a prominent leader in franchise market research, is delighted to announce its recognition as part of Entrepreneur’s list of the 2023 Top Franchise Suppliers. This prestigious ranking, presented by Entrepreneur magazine, celebrates companies that have consistently demonstrated quality and excellence in supporting and serving the franchise industry.

To determine the annual ranking of the Top Franchise Suppliers, Entrepreneur surveyed more than 1,000 franchisors, and asked them to rate their satisfaction with the quality, cost, and value of each supplier’s services. Only the top-scoring suppliers in each of 11 categories made it into the ranking.

FBR was voted a top supplier in two of 11 categories, ranking in both the Consulting/Development and Events category for the FBR Summit. Launched in 2022, the Summit is the only event specifically for franchise operations leaders and teams that directly support franchisees. 

“This is the first time we’ve thrown our hat in the ring to be considered for an Entrepreneur award, and to say we are thrilled to have made the list twice is an understatement.”

–Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review.

“This is the first time we’ve thrown our hat in the ring to be considered for an Entrepreneur award, and to say we are thrilled to have made the list twice is an understatement,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “Our team at Franchise Business Review is committed to providing the highest quality services and support to the franchise community, and I am especially proud of the recognition we received for the FBR Summit considering that last year was the inaugural event. ”
