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. 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 choose 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.” Eric Stites, CEO | Franchise Business Review
In years past, The Glass Guru has always demonstrated the belief that recognition from Franchise Business Review is some of the most credible and applicable recognition the company can get from the franchise industry or trades. The reasoning has always been based on the fact that each piece of recognition from FBR begins with a comprehensive survey completed by actual franchise owners.
We as an organization are incredibly honored to once again be included on the Franchise Business Reviews list of Top Franchises for 2020. It’s always eye-opening to review the results from the annual FBR Franchise Satisfaction Survey. Of course it’s great when our franchisees feel we’re doing really well in any one area. What’s even more valuable to us as a company is to see where the franchisees provide us feedback, even critical feedback, that ultimately exposes an area where we can support them better. The FBR Franchise Satisfaction survey results have become an important strategy tool, as our management team uses the results each year to craft strategy and policy that helps lead to continuously satisfied and happy franchisees. Leveraging the tremendous value of working with Franchise Business Review each year has become part of The Glass Guru’s DNA.” Dan Frey, CEO & Founder | The Glass Guru Franchise Systems, Inc.
