Curious Jane, a national advertising agency for franchises, has been ranked among the nation’s best franchise marketing agencies by Entrepreneur magazine in its third annual ranking of Top Franchise Suppliers.
“We are proud to continue to improve in the rankings and be listed among the nation’s top franchise marketing agencies,” said Lora Kellogg, CFE, president and CEO of Curious Jane. “Our team has worked extremely hard this year not only to help our franchise clients grow their businesses but also to grow our own agency.”
Curious Jane works with national franchise clients such as Winmark, Pearle Vision, Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services, Plato’s Closet, Once Upon A Child and Play It Again Sports. In 2020, the agency gained several new franchise development clients, including Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa, Neighborly Brands and Goodcents Deli Fresh Subs. “We appreciate all of the franchises that entrust their marketing to us,” Kellogg said.
To create the ranking, Entrepreneur asked more than 700 franchisors to name the service providers that the franchisors and their franchisees work with and to rate their satisfaction with those providers. The magazine then published the top scorers in each of 10 categories: Accounting, Banking/Financing, Franchise Broker/Referral Networks, Franchise Consulting/Development, Legal Services, Marketing, Merchant Services, Other Technology Services, Public Relations and Real Estate Services. The rankings are online and in the magazine’s September issue.
Founded by Kellogg more than 16 years ago, Curious Jane is a woman-owned business and among the few agencies that work with both franchisors and franchisees. The agency’s clientele includes both leading national brands as well as emerging franchises. Curious Jane is a full-service agency, providing creative and branding, media buying, social media, digital marketing, PR, website development and management and franchise development services to its clients.
