How we calculate our ratings

How we calculate our ratings

There are six different award categories to enter with one overall category. Franchises enter into one or more categories by having their franchisees surveyed on the topic. Each category specific question is weighted according to its importance to franchisees. Weightings are determined by sophisticated (multivariate) market research techniques. The Awards are then presented to potential franchises to help them make a more informed choice about the franchise which will suit their needs.
