Full Speed Ahead

The 103 fastest growing franchises.

Let's face it: We live in a speed-oriented economy. We need more megabytes, more miles per hour, more microwaves per home. This need for speed has even seeped into franchising, traditionally an industry of slow and steady growth spread over decades of operation. Today, speed in franchising means more than just delivering a customer's pizza in 30 minutes or less. It means expanding a system by hundreds of units each year and ensuring that certain franchises have a location opening in each country, in each city, in each neighborhood faster than you can say "market domination."

The companies highlighted on the following pages have earned Entrepreneur's ranking as the fastest-growing franchises in the United States. Rankings are based on straight growth in the number of franchises from 1996 to 1997 as verified in Entrepreneur's annual Franchise 500® listing. (Companies that tied are listed in alphabetical order.)

The following list is not intended to endorse any particular franchise but simply to provide a starting point for research. Perhaps after a careful investigation of these franchises, you may find a system that can put you on the fast track to success.
