ComForcare Certified A World-Class Franchise By The Franchise Research Institute

ComForcare Certified A World-Class Franchise By The Franchise Research Institute
LINCOLN, Neb. (February 15, 2012) – ComForcare has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute® and FranSurvey®.

The recognition comes after an independent survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute, in which 78.8% of all ComForcare franchisees participated. The survey was designed to determine the level of franchisee satisfaction within the ComForcare franchise system.

“Using confidential surveys to understand franchisee opinions is vital to building a successful franchise brand,” said Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of the Franchise Research Institute. “ComForcare relied upon our unbiased, third-party research to obtain honest feedback from their franchisees, in order to help maximize franchisee sales and profitability.”

The survey asked ComForcare franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall growth potential, quality, support and communication.

Among the responses received from ComForcare franchisees:

• 90% gave a positive grade to overall quality of the franchisor.
• 97% gave a positive grade to the ongoing training and support.
• 97% gave a positive grade to overall communication between home office personnel and franchisees.
• 93% gave a positive grade to the helpfulness of the franchisor’s field representatives.

“High scores from franchisees, when obtained confidentially, are evidence that a franchisor consistently meets or exceeds expectations. ComForcare understands this concept and they work diligently to improve services they provide to their franchisees,” said Johnson.”

“From the time I started my ComForcare business in 1996, the overriding goal was to provide superior senior care services to our clients and to be the best we could be. As a franchisor today, our clients are our franchise members, and we remain committed to and focused on providing superior service and support to our franchise owners. We couldn’t be more pleased with the results of this year’s survey”, said Mark Armstrong, Founder and CEO of ComForcare. The ComForcare franchise satisfaction results are available:
