This is the third year in a row IFPG led its category on Entrepreneur’s Top Franchise Suppliers List
The International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) ranked No. 1 in the franchise broker network category of Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Franchise Suppliers list, featured in the September issue of the publication.
This year’s acknowledgment marks the third consecutive No. 1 ranking for the franchise broker network. “We are incredibly humbled, flattered and excited,” says Don Daszkowski, IFPG’s founder. “Receiving this recognition three years in a row is the ultimate reward for our team’s hard work. We continually innovate and look for new ways to give our members the most value in the industry… we’re thrilled that it hasn’t gone unnoticed!”
IFPG President Red Boswell says that the franchise broker network has taken a strategic approach to its steady growth. He considers IFPG’s dedication to franchise consultant training the key to the company’s success. “Since our founding nearly a decade ago, IFPG’s internal mantra has been ‘If we attract and train the very best franchise consultants, everyone else will follow,’” he says. “Thankfully, hundreds of happy, growing franchisors have proven that theory true. Being recognized three years in a row feels so good — and we’ve only just begun.”
To determine the annual ranking of the Top Franchise Suppliers, Entrepreneur surveyed more than 750 franchisors, from emerging brands to established companies that have been franchising for decades. They were asked which service providers they and their franchisees use, and to rate their satisfaction with the quality, cost, and value of each supplier’s services. Entrepreneur scored each supplier based on the results of the survey, and the top-scoring suppliers in each of 10 categories made it into the ranking.
