KOA Recognized with 2023 Top Franchises for Women award

Kampgrounds of America, Inc. (KOA) is a double award-winning franchise in Franchise Business Review’s most recent recognition. The company received two awards as a 2023 Top Recession-Proof Franchise and a Top Franchise for Women. Across both award lists, KOA, Inc. was the only hospitality provider of any type included.

Franchise Business Review, a research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only ratings of franchises based solely on franchisee satisfaction and performance.

Kampgrounds of America, Inc.’s inclusion as a Top Franchise for Women was based on a survey of over 8,100 female franchise owners. According to Franchise Business Review, women own 32% of all franchises and are, on average, more satisfied overall than men regarding franchise ownership. Companies were selected for how well the franchise meets their expectations in terms of support, work-life balance, financial opportunity and other critical areas of business ownership, according to female owners. Only 48 franchise opportunities made the final list.

“Women are important leaders across KOA, so to win this award is very validating,” Uselman said. “We take pride in supporting entrepreneurship across diverse backgrounds. There is opportunity here for everyone.”

Franchise Business awards for Kampgrounds of America, Inc. include Top Recession-Proof Franchises (2021, 2022, 2023), Top Franchises for Women (2019, 2021, 2022, 2023), Top Franchise Culture (2020, 2021, 2022) and Most Profitable Franchises (2022).
