Vote for Your Favorite Franchises in 4th Annual Franchise Times Zor Awards


Show your enthusiasm for the best franchises in the industry with the Franchise Times Zor Awards, recognizing the best companies in 10 hot industry segments.

This interactive awards program allows our readers to vote for their favorite brands in each of 10 categories, and our editorial team will make the final selections based on in-house research, our exclusive return-on-investment metrics and online voting that represents fan enthusiasm and industry momentum.

This year’s categories are: After the Storm (disaster restoration/clean up), Quick Flip (quick-serve burgers), Fresh Baked (bakery/café), Sweat It Out (boutique fitness), Game, Set Match (sports bars), Window Shopping (retail), Cut & Dry (lawn care and painting brands), Around the House (home improvement), Help Wanted (employment/staffing services), and Bring It Home (takeout/off-premises pizza).

Online voting begins Friday, November 22, at FranchiseTimes.com and runs through Wednesday, December 18. The winners and runners-up will be announced in the March issue of Franchise Times.

Contenders are drawn from the Franchise Times Top 200+ database, a 20-year-old research tool covering more than 650 U.S.-based franchise systems. We further narrowed the list by analyzing the quality of information in each brand’s Item 19 (which contains information about profitability for franchisees) or other key financial data, and also focusing on brands that are currently expanding inside the United States.

Let the voting begin!
