March 18, 2015 // Franchising.com // LINCOLN, NE – Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc. has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute®.
The recognition comes after an independent survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute, in which 70 percent of all Arby’s franchisees participated.
"Using confidential surveys to analyze franchisee opinions is vital to building a successful franchise brand," said Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of the Franchise Research Institute. “Arby’s relied upon our comprehensive, unbiased, third-party research to obtain honest feedback from their franchisees, in order to help maximize franchisee sales and profitability.”
The survey asked Arby’s franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall quality, growth potential, support and communication.
Among the responses received from Arby’s franchisees:
“High ratings from franchisees, when obtained confidentially, are evidence that a franchisor consistently meets or exceeds franchisee expectations. Arby’s understands this concept, and they work diligently to monitor and improve the support they provide to their franchisees,” says Johnson.
"While we are very pleased with the engagement survey results, we are committed to continuous improvement in the relationships with our franchisees just as we are with every other aspect of our business,” said Paul Brown, Chief Executive Officer, Arby’s Restaurant Group, Inc.
