Today is a big day for both FranConnect and FranchiseBlast, and an even bigger day for our customers. Today, we are announcing that we have acquired FranchiseBlast, the leading provider of franchise operations software used by over 100 brands.
If you’re currently a FranchiseBlast franchise partner visiting our site for the first time — welcome! We promise you are in good hands. And if you are a long-time FranConnect customer wondering, “Who is FranchiseBlast and why did FranConnect acquire them?”, well, there’s good news for you here as well.
Founded in 2007, FranchiseBlast is a Canada-based franchise management solution, specializing in field management, including site audits and self-assessments. We saw this as a great opportunity to extend and enhance our operations and performance management platform to form an unmatched solution to help brands drive operational success across the franchise system.
FranConnect, including the FranchiseBlast solutions, now delivers the industry’s only platform that helps franchise brands and multi-location businesses manage operational success from the brand down to the unit-level.
For FranConnect customers, this will mean less reliance on point solutions and vendors, and new and better capability for site audits and self-assessments. We have already started working on integrating the FranchiseBlast capabilities into the operations portion of the FranConnect platform.
For FranchiseBlast customers, you will get access to and integration with the full breadth of the FranConnect platform, including tools for performance management, franchise development, franchisee engagement, and more. You’ll also benefit from the service and support of the largest and most established software company in franchising, which has now grown to include the FranchiseBlast team.
