World Class Franchise Badge

World-Class Franchise® Certification:

  • Is the highest honor in franchising, because it is based upon a confidential vote of a brand’s own franchisees.
  • Is research documentation of extraordinary franchisee satisfaction.
  • Is a badge of honor for franchisees, executives, and staff.
  • Can be a game changer for your franchise development.

Benefits of World-Class Franchise recognition:

  • 100% confidence! Only the best qualify and can only be earned through the franchisees voice. A significant survey response rate is required to ensure data is representational of the entire network and not just from the happy people.
  • Recognition! All World-Class Franchise’s are featured on the Franchise Research Institute’s website and social media outlets including but not limited to Facebook and LinkedIn.
  • Market-ability! Your company has unlimited use of the World-Class Franchise seal in all print and digital media.
  • Differentiation! Reports can be shared with prospective franchisees so they have a complete and accurate understanding of the network through the franchisees voices.

There are many “Best” and “Top” lists in franchising, but certification as a World-Class Franchise is the only recognition based upon comprehensive (every franchisee contacted), confidential (no risk for negative responses, no reward for positive), published, science-based methodology.
