It’s the Fifth Recognition in a Row for the International Franchise Professionals Group
The International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) has once again secured the top spot on Entrepreneur magazine’s prestigious 2023 Top Franchise Suppliers list, marking its fifth consecutive recognition as the No. 1 franchise broker network. This noteworthy ranking, featured in Entrepreneur’s September/October issue and on Entrepreneur.com, highlights the industry’s leading service providers across eleven distinct categories.
Don Daszkowski, IFPG’s founder and CEO, is excited about this recognition. “IFPG’s hardworking team and our world-class franchise consultants are thrilled that Entrepreneur has again acknowledged the excellence of what we do,” he says. “We constantly challenge ourselves to empower our members with the resources to match candidates with ideal opportunities. When our members succeed, so do franchisees. That’s our ultimate goal: changing lives for the better through franchise ownership.”

IFPG’s Continued Growth
IFPG has experienced strong growth since its founding in 2012 and now has a 1,500-plus membership comprising franchisors, franchise consultants and vendors. The franchise broker network sets superior ethical standards in its business practices, maintains a collaborative workplace culture, and hosts creative events such as a fun and educational annual Retreat.
Last year, IFPG established a strategic partnership with Princeton Equity Group (“Princeton”), a private equity firm that works with expanding franchisors and multi-unit businesses. By leveraging Princeton’s resources and expertise, Daszkowski says IFPG has been able to expand the support provided to its members while perpetuating the company’s family-like culture. “Our collaborative culture nurtures growth for our members,” he says. “And our members build lasting business connections and deep friendships. We function like a big extended family.”
Simply put, we have the absolute best franchise consultants at IFPG.Red Boswell, IFPG President
IFPG President Red Boswell says that culture enables its people to succeed and that the staff lays the foundation for that success. “We aren’t satisfied with anything less than excellence as we make life-changing differences for aspiring entrepreneurs through franchise ownership. Simply put, we have the absolute best franchise consultants at IFPG. This year’s ranking by Entrepreneur confirms that.”
Entrepreneur’s Top Franchise Supplier Ranking
Entrepreneur’s Top Franchise Suppliers ranking is based on an annual survey of franchisors, from emerging brands to long-established companies. For 2023, a record 1,000-plus franchise brands participated in the survey, reporting on their satisfaction with individual suppliers such as IFPG. The franchise brands evaluate their suppliers based on quality, cost and value, and then Entrepreneur reviews the scores to determine its annual rankings.
“No franchise can succeed alone, just like no entrepreneur can succeed alone,” says Entrepreneur’s editor-in-chief, Jason Feifer. “The brands on our Top Suppliers list are the often unsung heroes of franchising, who help entrepreneurs do business right.”
