iFranchise Group Receives Top Franchise Advisor Ranking Again – September 2020

Global firm with Chicago roots named best in consulting niche

[September 1, 2020] – HOMEWOOD, ILLINOIS – For the second year in a row, iFranchise Group was voted the best overall in the franchise consulting and development category from an independent survey conducted by Entrepreneur Magazine. The magazine polled over 700 brands ranging from emerging franchisors to top-ranked Franchise 500 brands with thousands of locations.

“We are thrilled to receive this award again this year,” said Mark Siebert, CEO, iFranchise Group. “Our entire team is grateful for the trust our clients have placed in us to help their businesses expand through franchising. Being chosen the proven leader in this category once again is truly an honor.”

iFranchise Group provides highly customized franchise consulting, development, operations, and marketing solutions across a wide range of industries. Each year iFranchise Group is contacted by thousands of companies considering franchising their business, yet only takes a small fraction of those companies as clients. iFranchise Group analysts use specially designed strategies to thoroughly assess which companies are ready to franchise, which need more guidance before becoming a franchisor and which are not feasible for franchising. The company has worked with hundreds of emerging and established franchise systems, as well as licensing and dealership organizations.

“We have built iFranchise Group over more than two decades with an executive consulting team who bring real world franchise sales, consulting and marketing expertise. In fact, our senior consultants average more than 25 years of experience in franchising,” said Dave Hood, President, iFranchise Group. “We pride ourselves on bringing custom analysis and approaches to each client engagement.”

Last year was Entrepreneur Magazine’s inaugural ranking for franchise suppliers in the Franchise Consulting/Development category, with iFranchise Group securing the top position then as well. The independent survey identifies suppliers to the franchise community who are scored based on satisfaction ratings in terms of quality, cost, and value of supplier services.
