About Us

Since 2008 we have celebrated the topfranchise awards. We know franchising and licensing having worked with over 100 wholesale, franchise and licensed brands since our establishment in 2003.

Strengthening relationships between people and communities is fundamental to our organisation. The topfranchise awards provide a platform to connect people who are looking at becoming franchisees with franchisors who excel in areas that are of great importance to existing franchsiees. The Awards also encourage deeper relationships between franchisors and their existing franchisees.

10 THOUSAND FEET is a full service market research house. In addition to providing franchisee satisfaction surveys, we provide a full range of quantitative and qualitative research services in areas such as New Product Development, Communications Testing, Customer Experience, Segmentation Strategy, Market Sizing and Optimisation, Brand Health and Motivational Research.

We are proud to have SEEK Business as our partner in bringing you the topfranchise Awards.


SEEK Business was launched in late 2006 to fill a need for people with experience, entrepreneurial nature, or simply those who wish to manage their business or want a life change. As a result, they have quickly become Australia's leading online marketplace for buying and selling business and franchise opportunities.

Most of their business seekers are in the 35-55 age group, on a well above average income, with a university degree and already investing*. About 40% are ready to buy a business, while 60% are browsing the ads and could be tempted with the right opportunity.

Within franchising businesses, there is a strong growth in traffic numbers, and in October 2014 SEEK Business had over 218,000* visits making them a leading online marketplace for prospective franchisees.
