February 19, 2016 // Franchising.com // 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:
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.
Ed Teixeira, COO of FranchiseGrade.com commented on the report: “ This analysis demonstrates the important contribution of Healthy Franchise Systems towards achieving sustained quality growth in the franchise industry, while Unhealthy Franchise Systems often drain franchisee investment dollars from the healthy franchises. A primary objective of our research is to recognize the Healthy Franchise Systems and elevate the performance of Unhealthy Franchise Systems.”
