FranchiseHelp Announces 2020 Franchise Award Winners
FranchiseHelp is thrilled to present our second annual top franchise awards!
These rankings include gold, silver and bronze winners for several categories, including profitability, growth, top established, top emerging and top overall franchises. Established winners have over five years in operation. Profitability looks at buy in and earning potential.
With numerous franchisors submitting their information for the ranking, we believe the winners are a true testament to the strongest companies and trends in franchising.
Naturally, our goal for the past 25 years of our existence has been to celebrate all franchises. But as a leading comprehensive resource center for prospective franchisees, we used our vast experience, expertise, and of course, proprietary data, to evaluate the strength of franchise opportunities provided today.
Some key factors that went into our evaluation include, but are not limited to:
- Cost & Fees Liquid Capital Requirement, Franchise Fee, Royalty fees
- Size & Growth Growth rate, closures, years in operation
- Franchise Disclosure Document Item 19 disclosures
- Support Marketing Support, Operational Support, Training
Meanwhile, some parting words from FranchiseHelp President, Anna Flowers:
“This has been a particularly challenging year for all of us in the Franchise industry, and it has highlighted the tremendous resilience of Franchising. This year’s FranchiseHelp Award Winners are an outstanding group of Franchisors who have risen to the challenge. Potential franchisees should look very closely at these brands as they look to join a strong and supportive franchise business that can weather a storm.”

Franchise Disclosure Documents For Dummies – Part 1
To begin my new weekly column for FranchiseHelp.com I will be writing a series of articles covering some basics and need-to-know information for each of the twenty-three Items of the Franchise Disclosure Document (“FDD”). I will try to be as non-technical as possible, and will try to provide insight and information that is useful for both franchisors and prospective franchisees. Nine weeks from now, you may have a slightly better understanding of the core elements of the FDD.
