Methodology: According to Forbes,

FRANdata did screen for two key criteria over those years that give some indication of market demand for the brand and overall support for its franchisees: growth rate and the so-called continuity rate. Continuity gives some indication of the ongoing success of the stores… Other factors that affected the ranking: a franchisor’s transparency in reporting historical performance, which lets prospective franchisees evaluate the opportunity; support for franchisees (financing and the like); and recurring revenue self-sufficiency (does the franchisor depend on revenues from selling additional franchises to sustain ongoing operations?)

    My company owns several Dickey’s franchises, among other brands we own and operate. We love the Dickey’s product but recognize the negative issues. I would like to:

    1. Respond to some of the concerns addressed in unhappy franchisee. How do I respond without revealing may actual name?

    2. Have names of others who have responded and might want to start and owners’ group and potentially file suit regarding the kickbacks which Dickey’s corporate certainly takes.
