Color Glo International® Certified as a 2019 World-Class Franchise® By The Franchise Research Institute® 

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. Feb 04th, 2019 – Color Glo International® has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute® for the ninth consecutive year.

Color Glo International Certified as a 2019 World-Class Franchise

According to the Franchise Research Institute, to be considered, a franchisor must be transparent and offer access to every franchisee. The results must be comprehensive (70%+ participation) and responses must remain confidential… no risk for negative and no-reward for positive ratings.

The answer lies in how existing franchisees rate their franchise as a business investment.
— Franchise Research Institute

The Franchise Research Institute® sent a study solicitation notification to all ninety-three (93) Color Glo franchise owners. The study was completed in January 2019. Color Glo personnel gave franchisee contact information to the Franchise Research Institute. The notification included the URL (web address) of the Franchise Research Institute franchisee satisfaction online survey and a numeric “passcode” to insure no duplication of responses. 

Franchise owners were encouraged by Color Glo and by the Franchise Research Institute to complete the survey, and were assured that their individual responses to the questionnaire would never be revealed to anyone outside of the Franchise Research Institute (including Color Glo management). 

Franchisees logged on to the online survey questionnaire, entered their individual “passcode,” completed and submitted the survey. Sixty-eight (68) of the ninety-three (93) total franchisees, or 73.12%, responded and took the survey. The Franchise Research Institute has no reason to believe that non-respondents’ answers would vary substantially from those respondents. 

The maximum error range on this study is plus or minus (±) 3.7% at the ninety-five percent confidence level.

Among the responses received from Color Glo International’s franchisees:

  • 99% gave a positive rating to the overall quality of the franchisor.

  • 92% say if positioned with doing it again, they would re-invest a Color Glo franchise and 93% would recommend to others.
