In Entrepreneur uses an evolving ranking formula that evaluates factors like costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is 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 Franchise 500® in ranking order.

We believe that, when we eventually look back on this time, we’ll see it as a moment when many brands defined themselves for the future.”
