Evaluation Criteria: Best Retail Franchises
Growth Prospect

We spend time analyzing and comparing a number of retail franchises in order to best determine which franchises have a brighter prospect in terms of future growth and expansion. Those looking to start a retail business are looking for a business which can achieve long-term growth and stability by establishing itself as a credible retail store behind the name and prestige of a well-established retail franchise.

Marketing Support

As we evaluate retail franchises our rankings highlight the franchises which we have found to be most effective at generated audience interest in the products and services which they have to offer. It is important for a franchisor to be invested in the growth and expansion of their franchised businesses by ensuring targeted and tracked marketing and advertising campaigns are being implemented.

Training

Many retail businesses utilize various inventory control systems and payment processing solutions in order to ensure that the right amount of product is available in the store and to ensure that items are being ordered as they are needed. It is important for many retail franchises to ensure the stores are being operated by individuals which understand how the systems work to ensure the best operation of the store.

Ongoing Support

Many retail stores and franchises rely on the support of the franchisor to manage internal processes and proprietary strategies for the management and operation of the stores. As a result, it is very important for entrepreneurs to feel comfortable with the overall quality of support which they will be receiving from the franchise in terms of producing effective sales, handling media presence, and maintaining brand initiatives.

Value

One of the most important areas of our analysis lies in the monetary and soft value of a retail franchise. It is important for a retail franchise to have a strong reputation within their industry as an established and firm provider of goods. We investigate the overall value of a brand in regards to how consumers view the products being offered and the store’s ability to provide consumers with a positive shopping experience.
