How We Select The Top Franchises


We invite all franchise companies based in North America with 10 or more franchise owners to
participate in our research at no cost.


We contact all franchisees in the franchise companies to answer the anonymous, 33-question survey.


We analyze the responses from the franchisees and use a weighted scale to determine an overall Franchisee Satisfaction Index (FSI) rating for each franchise brand.


The FSI score is used to benchmark each company’s franchisee satisfaction level against over 1,100 franchise brands presenting tens of franchisees and determine their ranking among other participating companies.


We identify the brands that exceed the benchmark and recognize them with a Top Franchise Award.
