About the CFA Awards Program

The CFA Awards of Excellence is a free program that recognizes excellence in franchise operations and celebrates the mutually-rewarding relationship between a franchise system and its franchisees.

Each year, franchise brands and their franchisees compete for these Awards through an independent survey process that evaluates the strength of their franchisee relations. The Awards are presented annually to franchise brands that have demonstrated a dedication to superior franchisee relations, team work and communications.

The Awards program comprises two elements: the Awards of Excellence in Franchising and the Franchisees’ Choice Designation. One entry (a fifteen-minute questionnaire), completed by both the franchisor and their franchisees, serves both the CFA Awards of Excellence and CFA Franchisees’ Choice Designation programs for a given brand.

The award winners are determined based on the results of the franchisees’ survey assessment about their experiences with their franchise system and relationships with the franchisors. The CFA Awards Program is sponsored by CFA and administered by The Portage Group, an independent third-party research firm.

Participation is free and exclusive to CFA franchise system members who have been franchising for at least three (3) years or more and have a minimum of six (6) franchisees.
