Applause Appreciation Award Cheerful Meeting Concept

Michael Dwyer, owner of an Image One Facility Solutions franchise in Chicago, has been named one of Franchise Business Review's "Franchise Rock Stars" for 2020.

Each year, Franchise Business Review honors franchise owners who set exceptional examples of achieving success within the franchise model. This year’s Franchise Rock Stars were selected from over 28,000 franchisees, representing more than 300 brands that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research in the past 18 months.

“Our franchise organization has a family feel and is very close knit,” says Dwyer. “I love how well the whole organization communications and appreciate the continuous network events, marketing opportunities,= and leadership.”

The Franchise Rock Stars recognized were nominated by their franchise brand leadership in one of eight categories as franchisees who set admirable examples when it comes to leadership, business acumen, financial and professional success, and contributing to their community. Categories included: Giving Back, Women, Millennials, Veterans, Family-Owned, Freshmen, Top-Performers, and Multi-Unit Owners.

Franchise Business Review provides ratings of franchise opportunities based solely on survey research that measures franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes rankings of the top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as guides throughout the year ranking the top franchises in specific sectors.

Another Image One franchise owner, Ash Gawande, received the "Franchise Rock Star" award from Franchise Business Review in 2019.
