by | Sep 21, 2023

Award-Winning Franchise Communications Specialists Named One of Nation’s Leading PR Firms in Annual Franchise Supplier Issue 

SANTA ANA, Calif. (Sept. 21, 2023)Powerhouse+Co., 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 highlighting an often overlooked aspect of the franchising industry: suppliers and vendors. The coveted list recognizes leading companies that provide services and support to franchisors in 11 categories, including public relations. This is the fourth year Powerhouse has ranked among the nation’s top franchise PR agencies.

“Receiving this recognition for the fourth time is an achievement we are extremely proud of, especially because it relies on personal, passionate recommendations from our franchisor partners, and we sincerely appreciate their resounding endorsements of the impactful and high-caliber services we deliver,” said Kristin Daher, Founder and CEO of Powerhouse+Co. “As we continue to welcome exciting brands to our client portfolio, this prominent accolade reinforces our status as a preferred communications partner for franchise businesses seeking enhanced visibility among key audiences and a commanding marketplace presence. 

To identify the Top Franchise Suppliers, Entrepreneur surveyed a record 1,000-plus franchisors – from emerging brands that just got started to established companies that have been franchising for decades – to rate their satisfaction 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+Co.’s position reaffirms its reputation as a trusted service provider to a wide and impressive array of franchise brands, including Wienerschnitzel, Mountain Mike’s Pizza, WaBa Grill, Juice It Up!, Philly’s Best, Arby’s, TOUS les JOURS and RobotLAB to name a few.

“No franchise can succeed alone, just like no entrepreneur can succeed alone,” says Entrepreneur’s Editor In Chief, Jason Feifer. “The brands on our Top Suppliers list are the often unsung heroes of franchising, who help entrepreneurs do business right.”

With longstanding experience supporting a deep client roster spanning many industries, including restaurant, franchise, CPG, consumer tech, and health and fitness, Powerhouse+Co. conceptualizes and implements award-winning strategic communications campaigns and other value-added initiatives for national, regional and local brands. Powerhouse+Co. understands how to remain relevant in a competitive marketplace because seasoned agency practitioners understand the unique challenges and opportunities presented within crowded industries.

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.
