The Best Franchises Of The World is a prestigious event that brings together franchise owners from different parts of the world. The awards ceremony saw franchise owners from Italy, Argentina, Brazil, France, Hungary and the United States. All the contestants of the event are evaluated by people who have a sound knowledge of the field. They are all marked based on their franchise’s performance, and not based on how the company functions as a whole. This is done so that the overall brand does not play a factor in how well each goes, and to have a fair playing field.
