About the Global Franchise Awards

The sixth annual Global Franchise Awards recognize outstanding franchise companies that excel in their respective categories. An independent group of important, objective, and industry experts, working to the criteria developed by the Global Franchise team, shortlists the applications to determine the winners of these Awards. The judges choose one submission from each category that best exemplifies the values that Global Franchise wants to honor using these criteria as a guide.
