Sit Means Sit: A Top Low-Cost Franchise


Franchise Business Review recently named Sit Means Sit as one of their 'Top Low-Cost Franchises' for 2012!

This prestigious nomination puts Sit Means Sit among 83 other low-cost franchises one of only two within the Pet Services Industry. 


"To compile the data for this report, we surveyed 11,167 franchisees from low- cost franchises and researched more than 130 brands. We also talked to CEOs and franchisees at some of the top low-cost franchises for their in-the-trenches view."

"When we research a franchise company, we contact every franchisee via phone or email and invite them to take part in our independent survey. We average well over 50% participation, and, in many cases, survey participation will be as high as 70, 80, or even 90%. Franchisees answer 33 benchmark questions ranking their franchise system in the areas of financial opportunity, training and support, leadership, operations and product development, core values (e.g., honesty and integrity of franchisor), general satisfaction, and the franchisee community. An additional 19 questions ask franchisees about their market area, demographics, business lifestyle, overall enjoyment running their franchise, and role in the franchisee community. From this data, we identified our list of franchises with above average satisfaction."

An incredible showing was made by all competitors, and we're pleased to congratulate Tony & Baxter, Dave & Yeager, and Jon & Remy for an outstanding performance.

Congratulations to Remy & Jon for nabbing the fourth podium position in the Big Air competition.

Congratulations to Dave & Yeager for grabbing the fourth place spot in the Iron Dog division as well as taking home the title of World Champion in the Extreme Vertical (EV) division.
