The Franchise Research Institute was established to study and promote high standards of excellence throughout all franchise industries. Our mission is to listen to franchisees and turn their voices into scientific, actionable data. This information helps franchisors to (1) maintain great relationships with franchisees, and (2) make strategic changes to optimize their network which attracts extraordinary franchisees.

Our team is made up of data scientists, researchers, and business psychologists. But more importantly, we have been franchisees too! We take pride in collecting honest and accurate franchise data which helps future franchisees make great investing decisions.
