Spring-Green Certified A World-Class Franchise By The Franchise Research Institute

Spring-Green Certified A World-Class Franchise By The Franchise Research Institute
LINCOLN, Neb. (March 8, 2012) – Spring-Green 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 73.9% of all Spring-Green’s franchisees participated. The survey was designed to determine the level of franchisee satisfaction within the Spring-Green’s 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. “Spring-Green 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 Spring-Green’s 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 Spring-Green’s franchisees:

• 95% gave a positive grade to the Franchisor’s timely response to questions and minor problems.
• 90% gave a positive grade to the initial training.
• 92% gave a positive grade to initial opening support.
• 99% gave a positive grade to the helpfulness and communication between fellow franchisees.

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

“We’re excited to once again receive this prestigious award from the Franchise Research Institute. We’re proud of the excellent relationships we have developed with our franchise owners and the results of this survey reaffirm our efforts to help our franchisees succeed. We will continue to look for new ways we can provide support for our franchise owners,” James Young, President of Spring-Green Lawn Care.
