MaidPro announced today that is has been named to Franchise Business Review’s 2013 Overall Top 50 Best of the Best (FBR50) franchise companies based on franchisee satisfaction, earning the best ratings of any maid service franchise included in the extensive study.
Now in its eighth year, the FBR50 is based on an in-depth study of some 26,000 franchisees, representing more than 350 franchise brands. The FBR50 is the only awards program to rank companies based solely on franchisee satisfaction. The survey includes 33 benchmark questions relating to franchisees’ experiences with training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, financial opportunity, success and much more.
“We ask [franchisees] critical questions about their brand’s leadership, training and corporate support, marketing and promotional programs, communication, technology and product development and innovation,” says Franchise Business Review President Michelle Rowan. “We also measure their financial performance and overall satisfaction with the brand. Would they recommend their franchise to others? And, if they had to do it all over again, would they still invest today?
“The brands that are our top franchises each year are more than just award winners,” Rowan adds. “They are the brands with the best franchisee satisfaction, the best training and support for franchisees, and brands that care enough to ask their franchisees what they really think. MaidPro is part of an even more elite group in that they have been on our list all 7 years!”
“Encouraging our franchise owners to participate each year in FBR’s objective satisfaction study is a no brainer,” says MaidPro CEO Mark Kushinsky. “It’s a great way for us to benchmark and measure our performance from year to year across a large number of metrics and also an excellent resource for entrepreneurs facing a huge array of franchising options.”
“While we will always pursue continuous improvement in franchisee satisfaction,” Kushinsky adds, “it certainly is gratifying when the high scores from our franchise community earn us the top position as the best in our industry for franchisee satisfaction.”
