Evaluation Criteria: Best Convenience Store Franchises
Growth Prospect

A core component of our evaluation process involves the identification of a franchise’s overall opportunity and likeliness for future growth and expansion when compared to industry averages. Any franchisee looking to start a business is looking for a long-term investment which will ultimately pay off. It is important for the franchise to have historical growth and a long-term growth prospect for franchisee benefit.

Marketing Support

We believe that the amount of effort and finances a franchise places into supporting and maintaining long-term growth for their franchises is a crucial component of great benefit to our visitors. Those looking for a well-established franchise for long-term growth look for franchises which invest in their franchisees through advertising and marketing campaigns which aim to obtain new clients in relevant markets.

Training

As we conduct our research and analysis of convenience store franchises time is spent analyzing the training and advertising courses used to ensure employees involved in the franchise understand how the adequately produce the products and services being offered. It is important for employees to have the right knowledge to handle specific types of events or to properly stock and overlook the products being offered.

Ongoing Support

For the benefit of long term growth and success we find it important for franchises to continue to communicate with and support their franchised businesses. During our investigation of the best convenience store franchises we often look to those which continue to provide their franchisees with promotional materials, new products, and other benefits to maintain their existing clients while expanding.

Value

We take a unique approach to defining the value of a franchise by comparing the relative financial performance of the franchise, the established identity and familiarity of the brand within the industry, and the operational organization within the franchise. The brand and name of a convenience store is important to ensure people will stop in to purchase goods of consistent quality on a daily recurring basis.
