Best In Class Franchises - Service-Based Franchises is an effort to pick the "best" franchises from among over 2,000 service-based franchise systems. While picking the "best" of anything is subjective in the final determination, every effort has been made to employ rigorous metrics whenever possible. All of the critical variables have been properly assessed. The final selection is based on a number of factors, including historical growth (annual and compound), franchisee "continuity" rates, turnover rates, competitive advantage, franchisee satisfaction, financial stability, etc. This book is an extension of other books on franchising published by Source Book Publications ( Bond's Top 100 Franchises , Bond's Franchise Guide , How Much Can I Make? , Tips and Traps When Buying a Franchise , and Bond's Hottest New Franchises ).
