Maverick Franchise Brands launches India Franchise Rankings 2010

Inaugural India Franchise Rankings, a first of its kind, annual exercise initiated.
Mumbai, India 2nd March 2010: With an aim to encourage and promote best practices in franchising in India, Maverick Franchise Ventures (MFV India) announced the launch of the first-of-its kind 'India Franchise Rankings 2010'- awards to honour the achievements and the entrepreneurial spirit of Indian franchisors. India Franchise Rankings 2010 is an annual exercise aimed at encouraging franchise companies.

Despite there being several initiatives to award franchise brands, none of them have the a clear methodology on the basis of which they are ranked. The current awards gauge franchise recruitment progress and is where number and expansion driven, leaving behind a lot of more important parameters, no. of franchisee locations closed, franchisee profitability and success ratios.

The franchisee - entrepreneur of today complements the core Indian values of respect, freedom and hard work. Franchising shapes the lives of 85,000 Plus Franchisees across India, these franchisee - entrepreneurs transform and mould the franchise system and spreads the same entrepreneurial idea, within their family.

Considering the undividable association of celebration and entrepreneurship, MFV India decided to salute these 'solid gold franchisors' and acknowledge their contribution to the Indian Economy.

Speaking on this occasion, Dhawal Shah, Founder of MFV India said, that, 'We are pleased to launch the inaugural India Franchise Rankings 2010. Today's franchisees and businessmen are always on the lookout for franchise and business opportunities, but are not aware of various companies. With our propreitory index, we have developed a methodology for evaluating and assessing India's leading franchise companies'.

Silvio Zannoni, one of the investors in Maverick Franchise Ventures, on this occasion said that, 'Our Partnership with Way2Franchise.com has been quite successful in helping us launch unique-first initiatives like the India Franchise Rankings, Similar to our online franchise portal in Italy, we will definitely see us increase our market share in India as well.

Since, November 2009, the MFV India Team has been constantly examining franchisors and confidentially surveying franchisees. Participation in the franchisee’s surveys is anonymous; franchisees receive codes for confidentiality. Some of them, that prefer to speak over the telephone are not asked for their identity or location. Here is how we compile this mega-list--the first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking in India. The process began in November 2009, when we asked franchisors to participate in this year's survey. Each submission was vetted before being entered for data analysis, with 164 companies making the first cut. Of those, the top 100 companies made the Franchise 100 ranking, based on franchisee satisfaction and profitability.

Geetanjali Mehlwal, a legal expert and an experienced franchise veteran said that, 'India Franchise Rankings is a much needed initiative that will benefit everyone in the franchise industry in India as well as provide foreign franchisors with a fair idea about the performance of the Indian franchise industry'

All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. We also consider the number of years a company has been in business and the length of time it's been franchising, start-up costs, percentage of terminations, and whether the company provides financing.

All the factors are plugged into our proprietary methodology, with each eligible company receiving a cumulative score. The 100 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the India Franchise 100. Remember that the India Franchise 100 is not intended to endorse, advertise or recommend any particular franchise. It is solely a research tool you can use to compare franchise operations. MFV India stresses that you should always conduct your own independent investigation before investing money in a franchise.
