Franchise Business Review, a market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only ratings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. To identify the companies on this year’s list of the Top Franchises for Veterans, Franchise Business Review analyzed data from nearly 3,000 franchise owners, representing 385 brands regarding their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.
Each year, Entrepreneur invites companies with veteran incentive programs to participate in a survey designed to help them learn more about their veteran programs. From there, they take into account each company’s veteran incentive, how veteran franchisees are attracted to and supported by the company, and how each company scored in the 2023 Franchise 500 in order to finalize their list.
