February 19, 2016 // // New York, NY - Franchise Grade® continues to publish important statistics pertaining to the franchise industry. The latest publication compares the performance of two disparate groups, the Top 10% of Healthy Franchise Systems and the Bottom 10% of Unhealthy Franchise Systems. Each report in the series compares key performance areas over a 5 year period:

  • Part One presents a comparison of overall system size, outlet activity, and net outlet growth between the two groups
  • Part Two reports on Franchisee Turnover Rates for the Top and Bottom 10% of franchise systems
  • Part Three reports on the total franchise fees collected and the estimated initial investment ranges for the Top and Bottom 10% of franchise systems.

The analysis utilized the Franchise Grade® Franchise Performance IndexTM to identify the two groups. The initial database consisted of 2,260 franchise systems with 5-years of activity, which also identified 226 franchise systems in the Top 10% and Bottom 10%, totaling 452 Franchise systems in the comparison. All data was based upon the 5-year period 2010 to 2015.
