About Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500
In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
Each franchise is then given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the year’s Franchise 500® in ranked order.
“Franchising is strong and resilient, is full of innovation and opportunity, and provides a powerful entrepreneurial path for many people,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 45th annual ranking is full of companies with fresh ideas, exciting business models, cultural sway, and the kind of business sophistication that will define the next 45 years and beyond.”
The Franchise 500® is both a competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. To view The Human Bean in the full ranking, visit www.entrepreneur.com/franchise500. Results can also be seen in the January/February 2024 issue of Entrepreneur on newsstands now.
