Unishippers Named a Top 100 Franchise for Women by Franchise Business Review

Dallas, TX, April 23, 2024 — Unishippers has been recognized by Franchise Business Review as a 2024 Top Franchise for Women. Only 100 brands were named to the annual list of award winners.

Franchise Business Review (FBR), a franchise research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only reviews 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 quarterly reports throughout the year that recognize the top franchises in specific sectors.

Unishippers was among 350 franchise brands, representing over 8,500 female franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review's research on the Top Franchises for Women. Unishippers' franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training & support, financial opportunity, and work/life balance.

"Franchising is a terrific option for women seeking business ownership on a full- or part-time basis," said Michelle Rowan, president and COO of Franchise Business Review. "With so many franchise opportunities to choose from, it's critical to do in-depth research to understand how satisfied current female franchise owners are with the training and support, work/life balance, financial opportunity, culture, and leadership of any brand they're considering before making an investment. When you look at the brands on this year's list of the Top Franchises for Women, 89% of women said they enjoy being part of their franchise organizations and 88% said they enjoy operating the business, making them all excellent options for women looking to make the transition to business ownership."

Unishippers' survey data showed the following:

  • 83% of female survey respondents rated franchise satisfaction as very good or excellent*
  • 83% of female survey respondents rated opportunity with the franchisor as good to excellent*
  • 84% of female survey respondents agreed that the franchisor cares about their success*

Rachel Loughry, franchise owner at Unishippers since 2013, said this about what she enjoys most about owning a Unishippers franchise.

"For me, it's the work-life balance. In the past, having that corporate experience and commuting an hour away every day, I really got used to not being at home when I should have been having dinner with my husband and kids. The flexibility as a franchise owner gives me a chance to be present with my family and also take care of myself. I can work at my own pace, and I know what I have to do to get my goals completed. It's been a great opportunity for both my short- and long-term success. It's great to feel rewarded for the work you put in and then knowing what you do really helps the companies you work with."
