9 Fitness Franchises Made Franchise Business Review's Top 200 Best Franchises of 2019 List

Franchise Business Review's annual survey polled 30,000 franchisees from 310 franchise brands to determine which brands rank highest in terms of franchisee satisfaction. Nine fitness franchises, including Planet Fitness, Gold's Gym and Orangetheory Fitness, were included in this year's list.

Planet Fitness, Gold's Gym and Orangetheory Fitness were among nine fitness franchise brands that are included on Franchise Business Review's recently issued Top 200 Best Franchises of 2019 list.

The annual list includes North American franchise brands that received the highest franchisee satisfaction scores, although the companies included are not ranked in any particular order. Between June 2017 and November 2018, Franchise Business Review surveyed more than 30,000 franchisees from 310 North American franchise brands. Franchisees were asked 49 questions that assessed their franchisor's effectiveness in the areas of leadership, training and core values.

The list states: "There are many 'top franchise' lists out there, but Franchise Business Review's annual Franchisee Satisfaction Awards are the only franchise ranking based on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance."
