In Entrepreneur’s ongoing efforts to better understand and better assess the ever-changing franchise market, the 43-year-old company’s rating formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and evaluates many of the factors that go into valuation, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, financial strength and stability.
Each franchise is awarded a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative score become the Excellence 500® in the ranking order.
“Last year has been one of the most challenging in recent memory, which makes compiling our 43rd annual franchise list more than ever,” says Entrepreneur Editor-in-Chief. Jason Pfeiffer. “The companies featured in this year’s list showed us how resilience, support, and intelligence can help overcome extraordinary challenges while also emphasizing the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
