SOCi Named One of 2022’s Top Franchise Suppliers By Entrepreneur

SAN DIEGO (Aug. 18, 2022) SOCi Inc., the marketing platform for multi-location brands, was recognized as one of the top franchise suppliers in 2022 by Entrepreneur. The ranking, which is featured in the September issue of Entrepreneur magazine and on, highlights the top-ranked service providers across 11 categories, highlighting an often overlooked aspect of the franchising industry: suppliers and vendors. SOCi was ranked number two in the Marketing category


It’s an honor to be included on this list for the fifth year in a row as we pride ourselves on providing multi-location brands, including franchises, an all-in-one platform for streamlining their local, digital marketing programs,” said David Marler, chief customer officer of SOCi. “Keeping both corporate and local teams in mind, SOCi was built for scalability by giving franchisees the ability to efficiently manage each location’s local online presence while still allowing for corporate oversight. It’s a win-win.” 


Entrepreneur’s Top Franchise Suppliers ranking is based on an annual survey of franchisors, from emerging brands to some of the oldest in the industry. This year, a record 900-plus franchise brands participated, telling us which suppliers they and their franchisees work with and rating their satisfaction with those suppliers’ services in the areas of quality, cost, and value. Each supplier receives a score based on the survey results, and the top-scoring suppliers are ranked within their respective categories.


Entrepreneur’s Top Franchise Suppliers list underscores some of the aspects of the industry that are easy to miss, but critical to a franchise’s success,” said Entrepreneur Senior Vice President of Franchising Liane Caruso. “The 134 companies ranked in this year’s list help to handle critical aspects of business by providing vital services to franchisors and franchisees, such as accounting, financing, legal services, marketing, real estate assistance, and more.”
