Entrepreneur offered the first ranking of franchises in 1980 with its initial Franchise 500®. Today the Franchise 500 is considered the world's most comprehensive ranking of franchises.
Entrepreneur magazine judges all companies, regardless of size, by the same criteria. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, as well as growth rate and the size of the system. The magazine also considers the number of years in business and length of time franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. Financial data is audited by an independent CPA. The objective factors are plugged into Entrepreneur's exclusive Franchise 500® formula, with each eligible company receiving a cumulative score. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500®.
