About Franchise Business Review's Awards

Since 2006, Franchise Business Review has been recognizing excellence in franchising with the 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.

“The FBR survey provides us with detailed metrics that enable us to see how well we are doing. We don’t do the free FBR survey because it doesn’t give us the breadth of information that the custom one does. If we just wanted to be an OK franchise, maybe we would. We, however, want to be a great franchise.”
