Just Between Friends consignment sales franchise adds another accolade to its list of awards received in 2018. Franchise Business Review has included JBF on its latest list of Top Innovative Franchises. This award is especially meaningful because it is based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance.

“Once again, we are so very pleased to be recognized with an award from Franchise Business Review,” said Shannon Wilburn, co-founder and CEO of Just Between Friends. “We know that innovation is key to the health and growth of our company. We work hard to ensure that we don’t stagnate or become complacent. I think our commitment to questioning the status quo and to keeping an ear open to our franchisees’ concerns, questions and ideas contribute to innovation for our company. We look forward to seeing how this plays out for JBF in the coming year.”

To select the companies on the list, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months’ worth of data from approximately 24,000 franchisees representing more than 280 brands. Franchise owners were asked about their brands’ innovation and creativity as well as their overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others.

JBF franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training and support, operations and core values, as well 16 more-personal questions concerning their business lifestyle and overall enjoyment of running their franchise.

“Innovation takes a lot more than just having creative, great ideas. It also takes execution,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Each of the companies on this list has developed and implemented products, processes or services that enable and sustain growth and long-term relevancy.”
