Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in special interest reports throughout the year that identify the top franchises in specific sectors.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK was among more than 300 franchise brands, representing over 27,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research on the best franchise cultures. TWO MEN ANDA TRUCK’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training & support, the franchisee community, and work/life balance.
“Many franchise organizations ‘talk the talk’ when it comes to culture, but it’s clear that they don’t all ‘walk the walk’,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “A strong culture doesn’t just happen within a company—it has to be designed, built, and constantly maintained. The franchise companies that have the honor of being named to our first-annual Culture100 list are clearly among the best of the best franchises in the business.”
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s survey data showed the following:
-An overall ranking of 4.6 relating to core values for trust, respect, honesty/integrity and cares about my success
-An average of 4.5 for leadership: clear vision, team culture, involves franchisees and effective in driving
-A 4.4 rating in franchisee community: supportive of brand, supportive of management, active community and supportive of each other
"It's an honor to be recognized by the Franchise Business Review among today's top brands," said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK President Randy Shacka. "We continue to use these survey results as a learning tool – they help us understand the actions we need to take to continue moving the brand in the right direction."
