The Alternative Board (TAB) has been named the top business coaching and consulting franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine’s 37th Annual Franchise 500 Awards.
The company also ranked in the Top 500 franchises at #257.
The company celebrated its 25th year in 2015, and the award topped off a great year for the Colorado-headquartered franchise. This is the first time the company has been ranked number one in its category and the highest ranking it has received overall.
“This has been a tremendous year for TAB,” said The Alternative Board’s CEO and President, Jason Zickerman. “We are honored to be recognized by Entrepreneur magazine in their Franchise 500 many years in a row, but we are especially excited about receiving the accolade of being the number one business coaching and consulting franchise.”
Entrepreneur is a leading business magazine. Each year the magazine judges franchises for the Franchise 500 awards on factors that include: financial strength, stability, growth rate and size of the system.
The Alternative Board is an international business advisory board and coaching franchise. Allen E. Fishman founded The Alternative Board in St. Louis, Missouri in 1990. TAB is a membership organization for business owners and leaders, who meet monthly to discuss ways of improving their businesses. Each group is typically made up of no more than 10 members whose businesses are not in competition with one another. Members turn to other members and their TAB facilitator for advice on different aspects of their business, such as improving sales and performance.
TAB currently operates in seven countries, including the United States, bringing together owners of non-competing businesses. Each meeting, under the guidance of a TAB Certified facilitator, is conducted in a confidential “think-tank” atmosphere, and additional one-on-one business coaching is provided as well. TAB delivers real world advice to help business owners stay focused on what matters most. Since its inception in 1990, more than 15,000 businesses have benefited from The Alternative Board services.
