Understanding the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Ranking

The Entrepreneur Franchise 500 is not just any list, it’s the culmination of a rigorous assessment process that looks into several critical aspects of a franchise’s operation. This includes an evaluation of costs and fees, such as the franchise fee, total investment required, and royalty fees, which are pivotal for any franchisee’s financial planning.

Support is another crucial criterion, encompassing training times, marketing, operational support, the strength of the franchisor’s infrastructure, availability of financing options, and litigation history. These elements are essential for franchisees, who need a strong backbone to lean on for their business to thrive.

“This year marks the 45th annual Franchise 500—still the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking,” Entrepreneur said. “If you’re looking to buy a franchise, this is your definitive guide. If you’re a franchisor, this is where your hard work is recognized.”
