Franchise Business Review, a market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only ranking of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction. FBR publishes rankings of the top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as special interest reports throughout the year recognizing the top franchises in specific sectors.

“Our organization is honored to be recognized not only as a top franchise but also for our company’s strong culture,” said Stacy Kwon, president and CEO, SNOWFOX. “The key to our success is and always will be our people. We believe in investing and supporting our chefs and partners and their positive feedback is a true testament to the SNOWFOX experience.”

Food franchise owners report high satisfaction in operating their businesses.”
