AtWork, a rapidly growing national staffing franchise was recently named a Top Recession Proof Franchise by Franchise Business Review for the second year in a row.  

“We’re so excited to have once again earned recognition as a Top Recession-Proof franchise,” said Jason Leverant, President and COO of AtWork. “We’re proud to be able to offer an opportunity in an industry that has proven it can weather some serious financial storms.”

Franchise Business Review (FBR) is the only organization that ranks franchises entirely based on franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR publishes its top franchise rankings in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as quarterly reports that rank the top franchises in certain sectors throughout the year.

More than 32,000 franchisees representing over 300 franchise brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey over 18 months. From the research, AtWork was one of just 100 franchise brands to be identified as a Top Recession-Proof Franchise award winner and be featured on the list of the best recession-proof businesses to start.

AtWork franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.

“While no business is 100% recession-proof, these franchise businesses have demonstrated that they are highly recession-resistant based on historical performance,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “For people seeking to be their own boss, the Top 100 Recession-Proof businesses we identified this year not only have outstanding satisfaction among their owners—one of the most important factors to consider before investing in any franchise opportunity—but they have performed well in good times and bad and we feel they hold a strong advantage to outperform their competitors in the years ahead.”
