Powerhouse Communications, a creative public relations agency specializing in brand storytelling, media relations, social media and influencer programs, has been recognized as a high-ranking communications firm in Entrepreneur magazine’s annual list of Top Franchise Suppliers. Marking its five-year anniversary in 2022, the coveted list recognizes leading companies that provide services and support to franchisors in 11 categories, including public relations. Powerhouse was also ranked among the nation’s top franchise PR agencies in 2019 and 2020.
“We are extremely proud to have been recognized for the third year as one of the top franchise PR firms in the nation, and we are grateful to our franchisor partners who responded to this year’s survey with such strong conviction for the impactful, high-quality services we provide,” said Kristin Daher, President & Chief Storyteller of Powerhouse Communications. “As the agency continues to add new and exciting brands to its expanding roster of franchise clients, this accolade reaffirms our standing as a sought-after communications partner for franchise businesses seeking heightened visibility, greater awareness and marketplace buzz.”
To determine who the Top Franchise Suppliers are, Entrepreneur surveyed more than 900 franchisors – from emerging brands that just got started to established companies that have been franchising for decades – to find out which suppliers they and their franchisees use, and what their satisfaction is with the quality, cost, and value of those suppliers’ services. Each supplier was scored based on the results of this survey, and the top-scoring suppliers in each of 11 categories made it into the ranking. Powerhouse Communications’ ranking illustrates its position as a trusted franchise-community service provider with industry partnerships that include Wienerschnitzel, Mountain Mike’s Pizza, WaBa Grill, Juice It Up!, Philly’s Best, Arby’s and TOUS les JOURS to name a few.
“The franchise industry is really much bigger than just franchisors and franchisees – the landscape also includes a multitude of companies commonly known in the industry as suppliers who provide services that help those franchisors and franchisees to run their businesses successfully,” said Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “Our annual ranking of the Top Franchise Suppliers recognizes those that do it best.”
With longstanding experience supporting a deep client roster that spans the ever-evolving restaurant and franchise landscape, Powerhouse Communications conceptualizes and implements award-winning strategic communications campaigns and other value-added initiatives for national franchise brands. Powerhouse understands how to remain relevant in a competitive marketplace because seasoned agency practitioners understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented within the crowded franchise industry.
Moreover, the agency specializes in strategies and tactics that generate business interest in franchise brands and a sense of urgency among potential franchise partners seeking portfolio success through growth and diversification. Well versed in what franchisees care about most, Powerhouse maintains a proven track record for positioning franchisor clients as smart investments for those seeking to bolster their franchise portfolios. Powerhouse also is acutely aware of the importance among franchisees to feel a sense of support from corporate franchise development centers – a dance the agency has perfected for nearly a decade.
Daher added, “It is quite an honor to have been nominated by our franchise clients for the third year, and we owe our success in large part to them; they trust our guidance and allow us to do what we do best!”
