Franchise Review is a website and mobile application. We do not claim to be a court of law or law enforcement agency. If you have a dispute with a franchise or you feel a franchise does not measure up to ethical/ legal codes, we encourage you to contact the appropriate authorities directly. Franchise Review is not the appropriate platform for reporting illegal activities, physical confrontations and other violations, rather than mentioning in reviews, we encourage reporting such accusations to concerned authorities.
We have photo guidelines and it’s important to take note of these in order to understand why some photos may be removed from our platform. Photos that are clear, in focus, and are relevant to the franchise will be part of the franchise photo gallery. Users can also post photos as part of their review for validation and context. Plagiarized photos, promotional content, photos of others posted without their permission, exact duplicates, and very unpleasant photos will be removed.
Franchise Review is a great platform for parent company to promote their franchise business. A few things they should keep in mind.
Listing updated: We at Franchise Review work very hard to keep information on our platform up-to-date, we expect you to support by informing us when an update is required. If your listing is not updated, it can have negative impact on your business.
Fake Reviews: Don’t lure users to submit fake reviews. The best way to get reviews is to delight customers with high level of service and dedication.
Take criticism positively: Criticism (negative reviews and comments) must be taken positively irrespective of the fact whether you agree with it or not. It gives you an opportunity to fix things. Using the management response functionality you can respond to reviews but don’t use this platform to settle scores or offer an incentive to customers for editing their review. Your response cannot be edited once posted, so be careful.
Accountability: Franchise Review will not moderate any questionable activity about your franchise posted in the reviews, comments, and suggestions (e.g. harming the environment, breaking the law). First names of employees and mentions of owners will also be not moderated.
Don’t fear: Users threatening to post negative reviews, ratings and comments if their demands are not fulfilled should not be feared. Similarly, inviting and entertaining users who have submitted negative reviews, ratings, and comments is also unethical. Please report users who engage in such activities to email@example.com.
Neutrality: In order to promote neutrality we don’t allow franchise owners and parent company owners to submit reviews and ratings for other franchises in the same category. This helps in maintaining neutrality and quality of the content on Franchise Review.
