Overview

The World Franchising Network and Source Book Publications have been involved in the franchising industry for over 25 years. Areas of expertise include:

  1. Publishing (Bond’s Franchise Guide (22 editions), Bond’s Top 100 Franchises (7 editions), “How Much Can I Make?” (15 editions) and several other publications);
  2. Managing over ten different websites on franchising (including WorldFranchising.com, FranchiseDisclosures.com, FranchisorDatabase.com and Item19s.com).
  3. Articles (top Minority and Veteran franchisors) and white papers on specific areas of franchising (Item 19s, industry overviews, etc.)

Because of the breadth of our involvement in the industry, we are able to provide clients with the industry’s most extensive database, which includes over 4,000 active North American franchisors and over 25,000 contacts and their titles. Through publications, our extensive library of current FDDs (FranchiseDisclosures.com), websites, questionnaires, phone calls, literature and Internet surveys, we are able to maintain the accuracy of the database on a daily basis, adding new franchisors, removing franchisors no longer actively franchising and modifying existing franchisor data. Past and current clients include ADP, Deloitte & Touche, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Intuit, Deloitte and the Wall Street Journal.

We provide two options regarding the rental of our database. $1,000 (Standard Franchisor Database) for a detailed profile of each franchise, including the primary contact and his or her email address. For an additional $500 ($1,500 total), we also include the names and titles of over 25,000 additional professional contacts within those companies (Enhanced Franchisor Database). We highlight those contacts that we have specifically verified as being active in 2017, 2016 and 2015. Most of the verification is a result of a company’s FDD. Optional quarterly updates are $150 / $250. You are free to use the database as long as you wish and as many times as you wish.
