The Little Gym International Honored for Franchisee Satisfaction

Franchise Business Review Includes Franchisor of Children's Skill Development Centers in Top 50

Scottsdale, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Little Gym International®, the leading franchisor of motor skill development programs for children, ranked number 26 in the 2009 Franchise Business Review Top 50 listing. Each year, the Franchise Business Review surveys more than 400 franchise concepts and nearly 100,000 individual owners to identify the best opportunities in franchising.

"Our franchise owners are passionate entrepreneurs," said The Little Gym International President and CEO Bob Bingham. "It is both wonderful and humbling to receive this recognition because it symbolizes their appreciation for the support we provide."

This year marks the fourth annual Top 50 Franchisee Satisfaction Awards, which represent the top five percent of all franchised businesses. As a resource for franchisors, franchisees and those considering a franchise, Franchise Business Review maintains the world's largest database of franchisee satisfaction data.

For the third straight year, The Little Gym has ranked highly in this survey. Bingham attributes the ranking to both the high level of support owners receive and an inclusive culture where owners actively contribute and assess new systems and methods. "We constantly ask ourselves what we can do to better serve them. What will help them achieve their dreams?" says Bingham. "I believe in focusing on the franchise owners' success first and foremost. If they are successful, the company's success will follow."
