Evaluation Criteria: Best Entertainment Franchises
Growth Prospect

During our analysis, we delve into the steps being taken to ensure long-term growth strategies are in place to assist franchisees in growing their businesses. We believe it is important for the franchises which we feature in our listings to place the future growth and expansion of their franchise as a primary concern. Those searching for reputable franchises for their new business look for franchises which will grow over time.

Marketing Support

Our analysis of the support provided by franchisors in terms of marketing focuses on the time and effort placed into ensuring the success and growth of their franchised businesses. We compare the advertising efforts of various franchises in different markets in order to determine how much time and effort is being placed in reaching out to relevant audiences in the markets where new and established franchises operate.

Training

We approach the topic of training through an analysis of the resources made available to new franchisees and those with an established business in finding and developing a workforce capable of producing products and/or services with a consistent quality. We compare the overall quality of training materials, online courses, and other educational and training accommodations which are provided for new employees.

Ongoing Support

A great asset to many aspiring franchise owners is knowing that the franchise is available in the long term with a vested interest in the success of the franchise. It is important for franchises to remain connected with their franchised businesses over time to ensure they continue to produce the expected quality in products and/or services and to resolve any issues which may occur due to miscommunication.

Value

We approach the topic of value by pursuing an in-depth look at what each franchise brings to the table in terms of financial stability, industry reputation, and branding. It is important for a franchise to work towards establishing a brand and creating a positive reputation amongst those interested in the products and services being offered. As franchises expand, many perform research prior to purchasing from a vendor.
