For the latest iteration of its Franchise Development Website Awards, 1851 Franchise did a deep dive into more than 175 websites to determine the brands that stood out from the crowd.
1851’s panel of judges evaluated each franchise development site according to three criteria: quality of site, quality of content and quality of form. Sites were scored on a five-point scale in accordance with these three criteria for a maximum score of 15 total points; the overall website rankings are based on a composite average of these scores.
Over the course of the month of May, each of the top 20 franchise development sites as determined by the judges will be broken down, one by one, to highlight their strengths and what stood out to the judges.
Kicking off the Top 20 is Restoration 1, which came in tied at No. 19 overall with a composite score of 11.2 out of 15. Restoration 1’s score breakdown saw the site garner a score of 3.6 in quality of site; a score of 3.8 in quality of content; and a score of 3.8 in quality of form.
Restoration 1 CEO Gary Findley said of the site, “Restoration 1 is the fastest-growing restoration brand, and more than 50% of our franchise deals have come through this site."
1851 Chief Development Strategist Sean Fitzgerald provided this commentary on Restoration 1’s franchise development site: “Restoration 1 did a nice job of highlighting its accolades from the top. I was impressed by the use of strong Item 19 information in the hero image, specifically.”
