July 12, 2017 // Franchising.com // New York, NY - Franchise Grade®, the leading franchise market research firm in the franchise industry, has published its latest Facts and Figures report – “Item 20 Errors Reflect on Franchisor Performance”.

Since 2010, Franchise Grade®, identified 297 franchise systems with disclosed errors in their Item 20s. The sectors with the most errors are Personal Services (25.6%), Quick Service Restaurants (18.2%) and Commercial and Residential Services (16.2%).

Commenting on the results of the report, Jeff Lefler, CEO and Founder of Franchise Grade states: “Although Item 20 doesn’t always receive the most scrutiny it deserves when a franchisor fails to correctly report their outlet activity it can reflect poorly on the quality of the franchise offering and pose a legal risk. When errors in an Item 20 are found, it can lead a franchise candidate and their attorney to develop apprehension regarding investing in that franchise opportunity”.
