Franchisor Database

Our Franchisor Database contains over 55 fields and currently includes over 4,000 active North American franchisors and over 30,000 franchise industry professionals and their titles. The incremental cost of the database for our Partners is $1,800 per year (versus $2,250). Click here for a sample. The database is sorted by 4 Primary Categories (Food, Lodging, Retail and Service-Based); 28 Secondary Categories (such as Automotive, QSR and Pet Services) and over 250 Tertiary Categories (such as Massage Studios, Chicken Wing Restaurants and Pet Day Care). Easy sorts can easily identify the relevant competition within a category. The database also identifies new franchisors (~500) that have been added to the database over the past 12 months. Custom sorts are also available for a minimum charge of $800.

The data in the database is based of extractions from a company’s most recent FDD, conference attendee lists, annual industry directories, company websites and other sources believed to be reliable. Fields in the database note whether or not the individual contacts have been verified in 2017 - 2019. Even though we have the email addresses of the vast majority of industry contacts, because of the CAN-SPAM Act, we can only provide one email address per company.

Comparative In-Depth Franchise System - FDD Analysis

Our newest website – – allows franchisors, lenders and investors to easily compare franchise systems against their primary competition. The FranCompare analysis, which is entirely arms-length. is a quick and invaluable tool used in evaluating potential investments prior to making a loan or financial commitment.

The analysis is based on extracting ~60 data points from each franchisor’s most recent FDD. For easy comparison, the data is presented on a side-by-side basis. Based on a consistent and equitable scoring system, each key line item (20) is individually scored and individual columns are totaled (out of a maximum score of 1,200) for all companies. It is abundantly clear which are the best-performing franchise systems. Meaningful Item 19s are heavily weighted in the scoring. Click here for a sample FranCompare analysis.

Apart from the obvious, some of the key factors evaluated are Return on Investment (Average Annual Sales / Average Total Investment), Compound Growth Rates, Continuity Rates, Turnover Rates, and Key Financial Ratios. Analyses require a minimum of 4 companies and are $175 per company. Analyses involving 10 or more companies are priced at $75 per company. The first FranCompare analysis for a single franchisor is complimentary.
