Ranking of the 200 award-winning franchises based on independent research of franchise owner satisfaction

Portsmouth, NH, January 5, 2018 Franchise Business Review published its 13th annual ranking of the top 200 franchises. The list of award-winning brands is based on Franchise Business Review’s independent franchisee satisfaction research of over 28,000 franchise owners. The list is available for free at FranchiseBusinessReview.com.

“There are thousands of successful franchise companies operating in North America, but many of those companies do not offer a solid investment opportunity for the actual franchise owners,” says Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “As an independent research firm, we rate the franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those that have the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees in order to help entrepreneurs when choosing which franchise to invest in. The companies on this year’s list are the top performing brands in the areas critical to their franchisees’ success.

Franchise Business Review surveyed franchise owners from 307 brands over the past 18 months. Franchisees answered 33 questions ranking their franchise system in the areas of financial opportunity, training and support, leadership, operations and product development, core values (e.g., honesty and integrity of franchisor), general satisfaction, and the franchisee community.

In addition to this year’s 200 award-winning franchises, 15 brands were inducted into Franchise Business Review’s Hall of Fame, which means they have been named to the list of top franchises for 10 years. This year’s inductees are:
