Evaluation Criteria: best Clothing & Shoe Franchise Opportunities
Growth Prospect

The independent research team approaches the topic of potential growth and expansion through a careful and comprehensive analysis of historical growth compared to industry and market averages. We have found it important to recommend franchises which achieve levels of growth and expansion which meet or exceed the expectations found within the industry for clothing and shoe franchises in similar markets.

Marketing Support

It is one of our greatest concerns to ensure the franchises we feature in our list are actively engaging in advertising and marketing campaigns for the benefit of their franchised businesses. In order for a franchised business to grow over time it is important that both the franchisee and the franchisor is dedicated to establishing a market presence through innovative marketing and advertising campaigns.

Training

The key to the success of any franchise lies within the proper training and preparation of those which provide the products and services which reflect upon the brand. As we evaluate and rank clothing and shoe franchises, we take a look at how much training each employee receives based on their role and the types of activities they will engage with in order to establish professionalism and an organized operation.

Ongoing Support

We also investigate whether franchises continue to communicate with their franchised businesses or if communication has a tendency to fall by the wayside. It is important for the franchisor to have an in-depth understanding of how their franchises are performing on average and to have ways to assist the franchisees which may be struggling in performance by offering their guidance and suggestions for improvement.

Value

In our comparisons of several franchises our research team goes to great lengths to objectively determine the overall value of a franchise financially, operationally, and in brand recognition. We believe it is important for a franchise to be interested in establishing a long-term positive brand image by ensuring their franchisees are producing exemplary products and services on behalf of the franchise.
