“There are thousands of successful franchise companies operating in North America, but many of those companies do not offer a solid investment opportunity for the actual franchise owners,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “As an independent research firm, we rate the franchise companies in the marketplace today and identify those with the highest levels of satisfaction and performance among their franchisees in order to educate potential buyers and help them choose which franchise to invest in. The companies on this year’s list are the top performing brands in the key areas critical to their franchisees’ success.”

“Being recognized as a top franchise for 2021 by Franchise Business Review underlines the unwavering commitment to our company values – in particular ‘empower and serve’,” said Brian Garrison, President of British Swim School. “Our organization is, above all, people oriented, and we are dedicated to serving our franchisees in every aspect of their businesses. No company, small or large, can be sustained without strong support and leadership, and we strive to provide every resource possible to empower our franchisees to excel and grow. It's an honor to be recognized by Franchise Business Review, and even more importantly, by our system of passionate franchise owners!”
