SOCi Ranked #1 Franchise Marketing Supplier By Entrepreneur Magazine For Second Year
Leading multi-location marketing platform earns industry honors
For a second year in a row SOCi, the leading all-in-one platform built for multi-location marketers, was voted the best overall franchise marketing supplier in an independent survey conducted by Entrepreneur magazine. The list, in its fourth year, recognizes top companies that provide services and support to franchisors and franchisees in ten categories.
“We are extremely proud to earn this recognition directly from franchisors. This is a testament to our product and customer service teams who spend an incredible amount of time listening to and answering our clients’ needs,” said SOCi CEO Afif Khoury. “SOCi is the only platform specifically built to solve the complexities franchise marketers face, in order to reach and engage customers across the entire digital journey on both local and corporate levels.”
SOCi, which recently acquired Brandify, has expanded its customer base of multi-location businesses and franchises to a collection of more than 700 top brands managing over three million locations through the SOCi platform.
“Service providers can be the unsung heroes of franchising, helping franchisees and franchisors manage some of the most complicated parts of their business,” says Entrepreneur magazine editor in chief, Jason Feifer. “That’s why we put together this annual list — to celebrate these franchising heroes, and helping others in franchising find their next great partners.”
To determine the annual ranking of the Top Franchise Suppliers, Entrepreneur surveyed more than 750 franchisors, from emerging brands just starting to established companies that have been franchising for decades. Companies were asked which service providers they and their franchisees use, and to rate their satisfaction with the quality, cost, and value of each supplier’s services. The top-scoring suppliers in each of 10 categories made it into the ranking.
