Unishippers Named to Franchise Business Review’s 2023 Culture100 List

DALLAS, TEXAS (September 22, 2023)  — Unishippers was recently named to Franchise Business Review’s fourth annual “Culture100” list. The list recognizes the top 100 franchise brands in a 2023 report on the Best Franchise Cultures.

Unishippers, a full-service third-party logistics (3PL) provider, puts small to mid-sized businesses in control of their shipping and motivated sales professionals in control of their career.

Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in special interest reports throughout the year that identify the top franchises in specific sectors.

Unishippers was among more than 360 franchise brands, representing more than 36,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research on the best franchise cultures. Franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems. The brands that were selected received the highest overall ratings based on 17 unique areas that contribute to a strong company culture, including leadership, core values, franchisee community, and engagement.

“Every franchise organization has a different culture and vibe,” said Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review. “A franchise company’s culture — and your potential fit into that culture — should guide your franchise investment decision. 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. The best place to start is with the brands on this year’s Culture100 list. These companies outrank other brands by 10%-50% across the key areas that contribute to a positive culture.”

Unishippers’ survey data showed the following:

  • 81% of franchisee respondents agree that senior management encourages a strong Team Culture
  • 89% of franchisee respondents trust the franchisor
  • 82% agreed that the franchisor cares about their success
  • 87% of franchisee respondents agree that fellow franchisees actively participate in company programs and events

**Based on 74 respondents in the 2023 Franchise Business Review Survey

“We are proud to be recognized as having a Top Franchise Culture two years in a row by Franchise Business Review. What makes the Unishippers culture unique is our people. It’s truly our secret sauce and why our franchisees continue to rank us as having a top franchise culture year after year. The like-mindedness and passion of our franchisees contributes to a collaborative culture unlike anywhere else. That plus the recession-resistance nature of the logistics market makes this a limitless opportunity.” – Dustin Wesley, SVP of Partner Channel
