Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500® evaluates franchise brands on key factors including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, 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. Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees.
“The 500 companies on this list all have something in common – they understand what consumers want now,” said Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs — because, in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive.”
“We’re extremely proud to be honoured as the best business coaching franchise,” said Ian Christelow, ActionCOACH UK co-founder. “2019 was a huge year for us – on top of this title, we were also named as Best B2B Franchise at the Best Franchise Awards, became an official partner of the Northern Powerhouse and received 5-star satisfaction from our franchise partners for the seventh consecutive year. Here’s to more of the same in 2020!”
