The Growth Coach adapted as the pandemic changed “work as we know it.” The franchisor dedicated its time to creating more virtual coaching materials so that franchisees could continue to coach their clients who were still in need of accountability and support . The Growth Coach is honored  to be recognized as a top emerging franchise.

“We are excited to be recognized as an Emerging Franchise for 2021,” said Lisa Hudson, Franchise President of The Growth Coach. “2020 was a year of change, uncertainty, and learning for business owners all over the world and we were able to successfully pivot to help with the changing need.”

“We created this list because we know that many who are interested in a franchise opportunity are seeking to join smaller systems,” said Eric Bell, General Manager at Franchise Gator.  “ They are looking for a wave to ride.  We wanted to present them with a list of companies who, according the information we gathered and their most recent FDD’s, look like they are putting all of the right pieces in place.  

Franchise Gator, one of the leading destinations for those seeking to invest in a franchise opportunity,  reviewed 100’s of Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD’s) to formulate their rankings.  Growth in units, turnover, and financials are just a few of the items taken into consideration.  The staff also takes a look at awards, the Executive team, and participation in the franchise community.

“Congratulations to The Growth Coach,” said Bell.  “We expect this to be just one of many accolades to come.”
