BBB Letter Grades Help Consumers Find Businesses to Trust

The BBB's letter grade rating system for businesses nationwide has been a big hit with the public since it was launched early last year. The system assigns letter grades from A+ to F for each business based upon 17 variables, using objective information about a business and statistics relating to the business's behavior and configuration. The variables and the algorithm used to calculate grades are the same for all BBBs. Previously, the BBB had rated businesses only as "Satisfactory" or Unsatisfactory." Consumers and businesses have told the BBB staff that they find the reports informative and useful as they make buying decisions.
