KOA Named a 2023 Top Franchise by Franchise Business Review

Kampgrounds of America (KOA) has been recently recognized as a 2023 Top Franchise by Franchise Business Review. The prestigious annual list recognizes the top 200 franchises and showcases the best franchise opportunities based on franchisee satisfaction ratings.

KOA received high scores in leadership, core values, and franchisee support, which earned the company a spot in the FBR Hall of Fame for over a decade of franchisee satisfaction. The company has been operating for nearly 60 years, providing franchise partners with the necessary resources and tools to deliver the best camping experience on the market.

Franchise Business Review is a research firm that conducts independent surveys to determine franchisee satisfaction. The firm provides the only ratings of franchises based solely on franchisee satisfaction and performance. The company analyzed data from over 30,000 franchise owners to determine the winning companies.

KOA was among over 360 franchise brands and more than 38,000 franchise owners who participated in Franchise Business Review’s research. The owners answered 33 benchmark questions about their franchise experience and satisfaction, covering crucial areas such as training and support, operations, franchisor-franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

Past Franchise Business awards for KOA include Top Recession-Proof Franchises, Top Franchises for Women, and Top Franchise Culture.

Toby O’Rourke, president and CEO of KOA, expressed her gratitude for the recognition, saying, “It’s such an honor to continually be recognized for the value we provide our franchise partners year after year.”

Michelle Rowan, president & COO of Franchise Business Review also commented: “As an independent research firm, Franchise Business Review is committed to helping prospective franchisees get an objective view of the best franchise opportunities available based on actual feedback from the people who own them.”

Rowan goes on to say: “Each of the 200 Franchisee Satisfaction Award winners on this year’s list achieved stellar ratings from their franchisees.”
