Award-winning food franchises were identified based on survey feedback from 10,500 franchise owners across the leading food franchise brands.
Franchise Business Review, an independent market research firm serving the franchise sector, has announced its Top Food Franchises 2023. The award-winning brands on the list were identified based on survey feedback over the past 18 months from over 10,000 food franchise owners across today’s leading food brands.
Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides ratings of franchise opportunities based solely on survey research that measures franchise owner satisfaction and brand performance. The company publishes rankings of top franchises in its quarterly Franchise Buyer’s Guide and on its website franchisebusinessreview.com.
For this year’s research on the Top Food Franchises, each survey participant was asked 33 benchmark questions about their franchisor that focused on areas such as leadership, training and support, financial opportunity, and core values as well as 16 more personal questions concerning their business lifestyle and overall enjoyment of running their franchise.
“The food franchise sector delivers a tremendous return on investment for many,” said Eric Stites, Founder and CEO, Franchise Business Review. “The key is to choose the right brand. The award-winning brands on our list of the Top Food Franchises rate 15% – 25% higher on average in overall franchisee satisfaction over other food competitors. That data provides actionable insight for someone considering investing in a franchise.”
Data from the top-ranked food brands revealed that 91% of the franchise owners on this list say they enjoy being part of their franchise organization, and 4 out of 5 owners would recommend their franchise to others.
Half of franchise owners surveyed are multi-unit owners, and 60% are planning to purchase and open additional locations.
