We have a question for you. What determines the success of a franchise? Is it luck? Coincidence? Why was Kona Ice ranked #1 New Franchise in Entrepreneur Magazine or even more importantly, Highest in Franchisee Satisfaction by TWO separate agencies? We think we might know why. Not every idea is franchise-worthy. Not everyone can offer the support. So why are some concepts instantly successful and others just aren't?
Here at Kona Ice, we know why we've succeeded and reached these ranks of the #1 New Franchise (Entrepreneur Magazine 2013), top in Franchisee Satisfaction (Franchise Business Review and Franchise Update), and named one of the fastest growing franchises in the country right behind McDonald's (Entrepreneur Magazine). We don't think it's luck at all. It's the combination of a fresh concept, strong corporate support with a vision, and a desire to make the world a better place.
So you may be knee deep in the franchising process with tons of questions, but we have just one for you. Why not join Kona Ice?
