Franchise Business Review has released its list of the Top 200 Best Franchises of 2019, and a few of them are already in our own backyard.

The list is made from surveying more than 30,000 franchisees from 310 of the leading brands to find which have the greatest franchisee satisfaction. It’s based on 33 benchmark questions about the franchisor in areas such as leadership, training and core values as well as 16 more personal questions concerning business lifestyle and overall enjoyment in the business.

Anyone who has been to a local school carnival is probably familiar with Kona Ice, the mobile snow cone franchise. It’s touted on the list for its low overhead and speed with which new franchisees start generating revenue.

Sales development system Sandler Training is also on the list. The Business Journal’s own sales staff has been enrolled in this training program for several years, and local franchisor Dale Bierce has greatly expanded his presence in the Sacramento area.

Other franchises on the list with a local footprint include FASTSIGNS, SportClips, Pinot’s Palette, Home Instead Senior Care, Nothing Bundt Cakes and more.

Visit the Franchise Business Review website for the full list.
