Ten Simple Steps To Top Ten Success

Top Ten Percent is unlike many other franchise systems, you cannot just “buy” a Top Ten Percent franchise. We feel that the true success of our system depends on ensuring we only award a franchise to those who are the best match for our model. Because of this, we treat the evaluation process as a mutual evaluation. We follow a very exacting step-by-step process in which this mutual evaluation process can be most successfully completed. This process can be completed in as quickly as three weeks, but generally never more than eight weeks.
