Knowledge is Power

Operational Best Practices

FRANdata examines the complex operational needs of franchise businesses and crunches the numbers to help franchisors turn ideas into empowered decisions, avoiding the uncertainty of whether they are reaching the ideal balance between financial returns and operational and support efficiency. The big data available to franchisors isn’t always complete, and worse, can be discouragingly overwhelming.

FRANdata benchmarks all of the operational big data for franchise brands, including but not limited to: use of technology, suppliers and vendors, advertising implementation, training and support, system continuity, franchisee fee contributions, and expenses and profits at the corporate and unit levels. Knowing how industry and direct competitors fair in comparison provides a context for boosting efficiency and quality in a franchise brand. We’ve seen the indisputable value in knowing both how companies thrive through operations and fail by them. We uncover these specifics to assist franchise brands in accelerating their operational success to turn a bigger profit and boost the quality of their products and services. With more than 40,000 FDDs , over 15,000 franchise executive contacts, and more than two decades of franchise-specific knowledge within 230 industries, FRANdata is a top-valued resource of franchisors across the globe when constructing best operating practices.
