The ACE Franchisee Satisfaction Survey uses cutting edge business psychology to measure the Advocacy, Commitment, and Engagement of franchisees – factors proven to be the core drivers of franchise success. Results include insights and practical advice from experienced franchising psychologists into how to make positive change across these factors.
1. Why is this better than doing our own internal franchisee survey?
Franchisees prefer to complete surveys from an independent third-party. You’ll also save time and gain more useful insights by leaving it to experts who know the right questions to ask, and how to efficiently collect, analyse, and interpret the findings.
2. Can we use an employee survey with our franchisees?
This is not advised. Franchisees have a different mindset to employees so the questions need to be different. Companies that try and adapt employee surveys to franchisees usually end up with confusing results that are not useful.
3. Where did the ACE Survey questions and process come from?
The questions have been researched and tested over many years with thousands of franchisees to ensure they are clear, relevant, and pass rigorous statistical standards.
4. Won’t asking for feedback just stir up problems?
If franchisees are unhappy in certain areas, asking for feedback is more likely to make them feel respected and settle them down. But it is important you provide evidence you’ve listened and are willing to act on any reasonable opportunities for improvement.
5. Will you help us to understand and use the findings?
Absolutely. An important part of the ACE Survey process is debriefing and action planning. We will work with you to ensure you understand your data, and help you turn your insights into practical actions. We will also help you ensure franchisees are involved in the process so this becomes a positive culture building exercise.
