It’s official. We’ve been ranked #1 in the first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. That’s how Entrepreneur magazine describes its 38th annual Franchise 500 ranking, and that’s why we’re partying our lids off.
The actual ranking process started in early 2016, when Entrepreneur invited franchisors to participate in its survey. All completed submissions were vetted and entered for data analysis. To give you a better idea of the size and scope of this ranking, a total of 951 companies made the first cut.
Out of these 951 companies, Entrepreneur ranked the top 500 based on the financial and statistical data that had been previously submitted. Companies were judged on financial strengths, growth rate, size, startup costs, available financing and other objective, quantifiable measures.
We’re sure we shined bright in every area. With 60,000 stores located around the world, a tried-and-true, time-tested business model, plenty of financing options and all the backing of a global leader, a #1 ranking was inevitable. And we couldn’t be prouder!
According to Entrepreneur, the ranking is not intended to endorse, advertise or recommend specific franchisors. It’s a research tool that can be used to help potential franchisees compare today’s top operations.
