Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

More than 31,000 franchisees representing nearly 300 franchise brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between July 2019 and February 2021. From the research, Kitchen Solvers was one of just 100 franchise brands to be identified as a Top Recession-Proof Franchise award winner and be featured on the list of the best recession-proof businesses to start.

Kitchen Solvers’ franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity. 

“From our perspective, franchisee satisfaction is one of the most important factors to consider before investing in any franchise opportunity,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Franchising has historically performed well in a recession, and for people seeking to be their own boss, the recession-proof businesses we identified this year not only have outstanding satisfaction among their owners, but we feel they hold a strong advantage to outperform their competitors in the years ahead.”

Kitchen Solvers’ survey data showed the following, when surveyed in September 2020 about COVID-19: 

  • When asked “how are you feeling about your business today?” 81.3% responded positively
  • 83.3% felt they were given valuable support from the Home Office throughout the pandemic

The highest rated areas for Kitchen Solvers from their franchise partners were:

  • Honesty and Integrity (92.7%)
  • Respect (91.7%)
  • Trust (91.7%)
  • Cares about my Success (90.6%)
  • Recommend to Others (89.6%)

“Being recognized as a Top Recession-Proof Franchise is an honor,” Dave Kish, Director of Operations states. “At the Home Office, we are continually enhancing our system to make sure our franchise partners have high levels of profitability no matter the socioeconomic climate, and receiving this award during a pandemic truly speaks to our efforts from everyone within our system.”
