Canadian Franchise Association Announces 2018 Franchisees’ Choice Designees


(Toronto, ON) April 25, 2018… The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) ( announced the recipients of the 2018 Franchisees’ Choice Designation last night at a gala awards presentation during the 27th annual CFA National Convention in Ottawa, Ontario. This is the eighth year for the annual awards program and, to recognize franchise systems that have been awarded the Franchisees’ Choice Designation multiple years in a row, CFA has introduced special 5, 6, 7 and 8-year logos that these companies can use to promote their consistent high marks from franchisees.

“The true strength of a franchise system lies in the mutually-rewarding relationship between a franchisor and its franchisees,” says Lorraine McLachlan, CFA President and Chief Executive Officer. “Being a Franchisees’ Choice designee is a high honour because the high rankings in franchisee satisfaction come directly from the franchisees themselves. To earn that honour year over year is especially significant because it shows that these recipients are consistently earning high marks from their franchisees.”

The Franchisees’ Choice designees are CFA member franchise systems who voluntarily took part in an independently-administered survey. Their franchisees were asked to rate the franchisor in key areas of the franchise business model, including leadership; business planning and marketing; training and support; ongoing operations; and the relationship between the franchisor and franchisee.

In the due diligence process of investigating a franchise opportunity, speaking with existing franchisees about the opportunity being explored is essential. For prospective franchisees, the Franchisees’ Choice Designation identifies that a franchise brand has received solid endorsement and ratings from its franchisees. The 2018 Franchisees’ Choice designees are representative of the spectrum of franchise opportunities and the diversity and excellence of CFA members.

Regardless of any awards or recognitions a franchise system may receive, CFA strongly recommends that prospective franchisees conduct thorough due diligence. CFA offers an array of products and events for prospective franchisees, including CFA’s official online franchise directory, FranchiseCanada magazine, the annual FranchiseCanada Directory and The Franchise Show, Canada’s largest franchise-only exhibition held across Canada.
