Survey Says: Franchisees Say AIA Is #1

Franchisee Satisfaction Evident Through Franchise Business Review

March 25, 2008 // // (Neenah, WI)---As if a strong business plan and stellar support system weren't enough, prospective entrepreneurs have yet another incentive to align themselves with Adventures in Advertising (AIA): the promotional products company's franchisees recently ranked it number 4 in large class franchises and number 1 in the Advertising and Sales category in Franchise Business Review's latest survey of franchisee satisfaction.

"We strive to make our franchisees' transitions from employees to employers as seamless as possible and consistently," said David Woods, CEO and president of AIA. "Satisfaction is one of the most critical factors every entrepreneur should consider before investing in a franchise and hearing that our franchisees think so highly of us is truly wonderful."

With thousands of opportunities to choose from, franchisees hold the key to understanding which are the best opportunities. Franchise Business Review measures satisfaction by asking franchisees over 40 questions related to training and support, system communication, franchisor/franchisee relations, financial opportunity, market demographics, business lifestyle and overall satisfaction with their business. Every active franchise owner is invited to participate in the survey process.

Founded in 1981 by Dan Carlson, Neenah, Wisc.-based Adventures in Advertising is a network of franchised and affiliated promotional product and corporate apparel distributorships throughout the United States. The independently owned and operated offices develop strategic marketing and promotional solutions for businesses of all sizes using top-quality products and creative techniques tailored to their clients' unique needs. Now headed up by president and CEO David Woods, AIA is among the 15 largest distributors in the promotional products industry that includes more than 22,000 distributors and is the largest franchised company in its niche. AIA expects to grant 25 to 40 new franchises annually during the next two to three years, with an initial goal of reaching 500 franchisees. Long-term growth calls for 800 U.S. franchises. AIA currently has 315 franchised distributors in more than 40 states. For more information, visit
