The Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) recently recognized Tailored Living as a Franchisees’ Choice Designee at its 23rd annual National Convention in Niagara Falls, Ontario. In order to become a Franchisees’ Choice Designee, a franchise company must gain high marks from their franchisee base through a survey administered by the CFA.

The survey that franchisees take focuses on areas of the business model that are important to a successful franchise. They include marketing, operations, training, and support. This year, over 50 CFA member franchise systems participated in the survey and more franchisees completed the survey than ever before.

“It’s always an honor to receive any type of recognition from our franchisees because it tells us we are doing things right,” said Chad Hallock, President and CEO of Tailored Living. “The growth and success that Tailored Living has experienced over the years truly comes from building strong relationships with our franchisees and making sure our goals are aligned.”

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 2014 Franchisees’ Choice designees are representative of the diverse spectrum of franchise opportunities.

“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 an honor and a vote of confidence because the high rankings come directly from franchisees themselves.”
