For the past six years, QSR Magazine has revealed its list of the top 10 to 12 quick-service and fast-casual concepts that provide franchisees the best return on their investment. But this year’s list is slightly different.
QSR teamed up with Franchise Business Review (FBR) to name 2016’s best franchise deals. The leading market research firm, which specializes in franchisee satisfaction and performance, helps the annual report go beyond companies’ financial success to also look at franchisor support and overall system satisfaction.
Checkers & Rally’s was named one of this year’s top ten franchise deals. The publication points to the brand’s active and involved franchisee board as a quality that makes it stand out on the franchising industry. With 828 U.S. units—505 of which are franchised—the Tampa, Florida-based sister chains are fully aligned with their franchisees. Checkers & Rally’s has also experienced same-store sales growth for the past five years.
Both QSR and FBR considered a wide range of factors to determine this year’s best franchise deals, including franchisee satisfaction surveys, management team experience, litigation history, estimated ROI as a factor of average unit volume and average startup costs, unit growth and continuity and momentum.
