Most Innovative Franchises

Innovation matters in that it could be what separates the best, most viable companies from the rest. For prospective franchisees, gaining insight into the franchise brands focused on innovation, and consequently long-term relevancy, is an important step in choosing the right franchise brand. The franchises on this year’s Most Innovative Franchises list focus on providing franchise owners the most  innovative products, services, and processes to help their businesses stay fresh and grow.

FBR surveyed over 30,000 franchise owners, representing more than 300 brands. We asked them how creative and innovative they think their corporate franchise team is, and if their leadership has a clearly defined vision for where the brand is headed. From that research, we selected the franchise companies with the highest combined scores in innovation, leadership, and overall satisfaction to bring you this year’s 100 Most Innovative Franchises.
