“Operating a successful franchise is a team effort between the franchisor and franchisees,” said Paul Linenberg, president of Gotcha Covered. “One cannot be successful without the other. To ensure our franchise owners can maximize their potential, we provide excellent franchisee services.

“Whether it’s our Gotcha Linked software or just answering a question from a concerned franchise owner, we dedicate ourselves to giving our franchisees the tools they need to succeed. Being named to this list is a testament to how hard we work to make sure our franchisees are satisfied with the services we provide and the experience they have as a Gotcha Covered franchise owner.”

Looking at data on how current franchisees rate a brand’s culture will tell you how well the franchise leadership team is executing on the vision of the brand, and how well the community of support staff and franchisees work together to achieve their business objectives.
