Information for the Franchise World
To make decisions, data is helpful but not sufficient. Turning vast amounts of data into
information that helps businesses make better decisions is FRANdata's goal. FRANdata is the
franchise industry's source for objective information and analysis. For more than 15 years the
FRANdata has been the company everyone turns to for information with which to support business
decisions and activities of businesses operating in and around the franchise world.
FRANdata is helping to change the basic way decisions are made through data and analysis
that are timely, objective and helpful. FRANdata has a big vision:
To positively impact decisions at all levels of the franchise industry.
This vision encompasses a large variety of needs for franchisors, franchisees, product and
service providers. How does FRANdata serve all levels of the industry? The answer lies in
its data sources, experience and commitment. With the world's largest repository of franchise
information, an experienced staff of franchise specialists, and a genuine commitment to objective
research and analysis, FRANdata stands alone as the franchise world's information source.
Using proprietary software to access data from many sources, including its library of more
than 19,000 Uniform Franchise Offering Circulars, FRANdata:
- Supports the competitive intelligence, benchmarking, franchisee marketing, and general
research needs of franchisors at all life cycle stages, from prospective to mature
- Helps prospective and active franchisees to evaluate different concepts and to better
understand the performance dynamics of their own systems
- Analyzes issues and provides marketing and assignment execution assistance to legal and consulting organizations

In support of the overall business of franchising, FRANdata provides general industry trends
and insights to the media. It also manages the Franchise Registry for the Small Business Administration.
Along with the many things FRANdata does do, it is important to note what it does not do. It
is FRANdata's belief that to be an objective source of information, it cannot be perceived to have
potential conflicts of interest. Therefore, FRANdata receives no advertising or other fee arrangements
that might influence its analysis, services and products.
