Share Article

Goddard Systems, Inc.(GSI), the franchisor of The Goddard School®- a leading provider of accredited early childhood education programs, has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute® and FranSurvey®.

The recognition comes after an independent survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute, in which over 85% of all GSI franchisees participated. The survey was designed to determine the level of franchisee satisfaction within the GSI franchise system.

"Using confidential surveys to understand franchisee opinions is vital to building a successful franchise brand," said Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of the Franchise Research Institute. " Goddard Systems relied upon our unbiased, third-party research to obtain honest feedback from their franchisees, in order to help maximize franchisee sales and profitability.”

The survey asked Goddard School franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall growth potential, quality, support and communication.

Among the responses received from Goddard School franchisees:

  •     97% gave a positive rating to the overall quality of their franchisor.
  •     98% gave a positive grade to the overall communication between home office personnel and franchisees.
  •     95% agreed that their franchisor encourages high standards of quality performance throughout the Goddard Systems organization.
  •     93% gave a positive grade to the ongoing training and support supplied by Goddard Systems.

“High scores from franchisees, when obtained confidentially, are evidence that a franchisor consistently meets or exceeds expectations. Goddard Systems understands this concept and they work diligently to improve services they provide to their franchisees,” said Johnson.”

“We are very pleased to be recognized as a top franchisor,” said Joe Schumacher, president and CEO of Goddard Systems, Inc. “FranSurvey gives our franchisees the opportunity to speak openly about the relationship. We not only use the feedback to validate our current efforts, but also to better understand franchisees’ needs in the future.”
