More than 31,000 franchisees representing nearly 300 franchise brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey between July 2019 and February 2021. From the research, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK was one of just 100 franchise brands to be identified as a Top Recession-Proof Franchise award winner and be featured on the list of the best recession-proof businesses to start.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
“From our perspective, franchisee satisfaction is one of the most important factors to consider before investing in any franchise opportunity,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Franchising has historically performed well in a recession, and for people seeking to be their own boss, the recession-proof businesses we identified this year not only have outstanding satisfaction among their owners, but we feel they hold a strong advantage to outperform their competitors in the years ahead.”
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s survey data showed the following:
- An overall satisfaction rating of 4.3 out of 5 from the franchisees surveyed
- The highest categories included Core Values at 4.7, Leadership at 4.5 and Franchisee Community at 4.4
- The Self Evaluation section also scored high at 4.5, with many franchisees indicating they felt like a valued member and active participant in the system, and overall enjoy the business
“Making this specific list, as a top recession-proof franchise, especially given all we’ve endured the last year is a remarkable achievement,” said Compliance Director Pam Batten. “I’m proud of the TWO MEN AND TRUCK system for their resilience and ambition this last year and know our brand is bound to continue this success into 2021.”
