To identify the companies on the list of 2022’s Most Innovative Franchises, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months’ worth of data from over 30,000 franchisees representing more than 300 brands. Franchise owners were asked about their brand’s innovation and creativity, their trust in the franchisor, overall satisfaction with the brand, and their likelihood to recommend it to others. 

“Innovation takes a lot more than just having creative ideas and solutions, and it also takes execution,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Each of the companies on our list of the Most Innovative Franchises has developed and implemented products, processes, or services that enable and sustain growth and long-term relevancy. We are proud to recognize the franchises that prioritize and value innovation to support their franchisees’ success and the long-term resiliency of the brand.”

Crestcom’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise system, including leadership, training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and the financial opportunity. When asked to comment on his  experience owning a Crestcom Franchise, John Lentini shared, “I cannot say enough about the staff and leadership at Denver’s HQ, especially given how they powered us through the COVID-19 environment through both outsized efforts and innovation. Their hard work inspired us all to work harder as well. They are thoughtful and professional partners, but most of all they listen.” 

Crestcom is proud to be recognized by Franchise Business Review as one of the top 100 Most Innovative Franchises. Crestcom’s CEO, Tammy Berberick, explained, “Over the past 7 years, Crestcom has focused on making transformational changes. In our industry, you can never stop improving.
