"When it comes to using franchise portals to acquire new leads for franchise sales, many providers begin to look alike. Simply put, the franchise portal market has become quite crowded in recent years. For our organization, we've found one provider that clearly stands out from the rest... Franchise Direct has proven to be our top performing franchise portal, delivering quality leads that have directly converted into franchise sales. Franchise Direct regularly demonstrates a high level of customer service that's becoming increasingly rare today. They are exceptionally responsive to our requests, and regularly work on our behalf to ensure the best possible exposure for our franchise brand. Even when we found ourselves facing restrictive marketing budgets in the past, Franchise Direct found creative ways to deliver meaningful results."

"We have been with a lot of portals but none as consistently effective as Franchise Direct. The quality of the franchisees we've signed from leads from Franchise Direct are among our top producers."

"Franchise Direct is a top quality lead generation source for franchise development at Kinderdance International , providing superior leads at cost-per-lead that is below our average with other providers in the industry. The customer service provided is outstanding from initial profile set up to updated photos, videos and press releases. We look forward to continuing our successful relationship for many more years. Thanks for being our number one source for lead generation.”

"Working with Franchise Direct over the past few years has been a wonderful experience. Their team is extremely helpful and always ready to answer any questions we may have. Getting our advertising up and running was a seamless process from beginning to end, and any questions or confusion we had along the way was met with quick, clear answers. I couldn't be more pleased with the value we've received from Franchise Direct!"

"Having advertised with many lead sites, Franchise Direct is surpassing all others we use, and the quality of candidate provided is much higher as well. I also highly recommend the international sites offered by Franchise Direct, due to the fact of how superior these leads are to those from other sites."
Vice President of Franchise Licensing
Jan-Pro Franchising International, Inc.
"2010- 2 sales, $70,000. 2011- 3 sales, $105,000. 2013- so far 2 sales, $70,000. Total $245,000 in franchise fees on $21,000 cost of leads. I'm happy with the results that we are getting from Franchise Direct leads. In fact our sales team fight over who gets the Direct leads when they come in. The highest quality of leads comes from Franchise Direct."
Jake's Wayback Burgers
"Having had little to no success on other franchise portals I was a bit sceptical as to why things should be any different with Franchise Direct, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Not only did Jim's Mowing receive more enquiries than ever before but the quality of the leads was much improved. As a result, Jim's Mowing have seven new franchise owners starting this Spring, with five of them coming directly from Franchise Direct. We couldn't have done it without them."

"Franchise Direct are a true deliverer of quality service. Their web presence and rankings make them a very strong partner in the pursuit of our expansion across the UK."
Anytime Fitness UK
"We started advertising with Franchise Direct in September 2014. At the same time we have also advertised with two other outlets who provide a similar service to yours; and who have charged us a similar amount. We have signed up 12 franchisees since September; 10 of them have come from your website. I think the numbers speak for themselves – in terms of cost effectiveness for us, you have outperformed the others in a ratio of 10 to 1, by which I mean that, for broadly the same spend, we have got 10 sign ups from you…while each of the others have provided one. Well done and thank you."
"Franchise Direct is an excellent site to deal with. Invariably first to display releases and amendments. On the ball with eshot administration. Very helpful people!"
"We at Hotel Express International have been using Franchise Direct for quite some time now and we are extremely satisfied with both the sales leads that have been generated and the service we have received. When we decided to make our concept of 50% discount off hotel rates available on a worldwide basis through franchise, we made a thorough study of all possible ways to announce our franchise opportunity. The number of websites offering this service was large, but the professionalism displayed by Franchise Direct in their response to our request made it easy for us to choose. We have not regretted it for one second. Over the past years, we have advertised our franchise on their website in Spain, UK/Ireland and Europe (English and Spanish) and we receive sales leads on a daily basis. An impressive number of new franchisees have been the result of all these sales leads. We have signed distributors from Europe, Africa, Asia and Canada from your leads. We plan to extend and expand our cooperation with Franchise Direct, using the German and American websites as well, until such a time when we will reach a full global franchise of Hotel Express International. Thank you Franchise Direct for helping us with our business development and the globalisation of our unique concept."

"Only 1 year of successful cooperation with Franchise Direct generated 8 beautiful sales. Their team is professional, supportive and helpful."
"We recently started to use Franchise Direct for leads and have already received numerous responses. Numbers are important, but what is more noteworthy is the apparent quality of the candidates converting from enquiry to the application stage."
Franchise Development Manager
Domino's Pizza Group Ltd UK & IRL
"Initially we worked with many business promoters online but results were really sorry, service was not up to the mark, and there was no company support. But since we have joined with Franchise Direct in Asia, Laziz Pizza has made over 50 outlets operational in India within just two years. Outstanding results, outstanding company support, outstanding promotion, an outstanding company."
