School of Rock Named a Top 100 Most Innovative Franchise by Franchise Business Review

School of Rock was identified by Franchise Business Review as one of just 100 franchise brands to be named an award-winning franchise in its 2022 report on the Most Innovative Franchises.

Franchise Business Review, a research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only ratings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. Franchise Business Review publishes annual rankings of the top franchises in its Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as guides throughout the year ranking the top franchises in specific sectors.

To identify the companies on the list of this year’s Most Innovative Franchises, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months’ worth of data from over 30,000 franchisees representing more than 300 brands. Franchise owners were asked about their brand’s innovation and creativity as well as their trust in the franchisor, overall satisfaction with the brand, and likelihood to recommend it to others.

“Innovation takes a lot more than just having creative ideas and solutions. It also takes execution,” said Eric Stites, founder and CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Each of the companies on our list of the Most Innovative Franchises has developed and implemented products, processes, or services that enable and sustain growth and long-term relevancy. We are proud to recognize the franchises that prioritize and value innovation to support their franchisees’ success and the long-term resiliency of the brand.”

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


School of Rock's concept is more potent than traditional music programs, combining private lessons powered by the patented School of Rock Method with weekly ensemble practices. Students learn theory, practice, and life skills through intensive, but fun preparation for live shows in real venues. Group learning teaches both technical and soft skills and this revolutionary approach increases retention, results, and brand consideration. The program serves children as young as four years old through grandparents who want to release their inner rock star. This core program, combined with camps, workshops, global touring opportunities, and other special events is helping us build the largest community of music creators in the world.

School of Rock doesn’t ask that its franchisees can play "Sweet Child o’ Mine" on the bass guitar, but it simply asks for a love of music, and a passion for education. The franchisee has the option of hiring a general manager to run a location instead of working as an owner-operator.

Enjoyment and love for music are universal, and therefore, The School of Rock methodology can translate well into any country and culture. From the U.S. to Japan and every country in between, there are potentially millions of would-be students who are just waiting to release their inner rock star.
