About the Fastest-Growing Franchises
If you're one of those who likes things to move fast, who wants a new challenge all of the time, then maybe a fast-growing franchise is for you. We've culled the fastest-growing franchises from Entrepreneur's Franchise 500® and compiled a list to get you started--fast.
The fastest-growing rankings are based on the number of new franchise units added in the United States and Canada from July 2011 to July 2012, as verified by Entrepreneur magazine. All ties are listed alphabetically.
This ranking is not intended to endorse any particular franchise, but rather to provide a starting point for your research. Due diligence includes thoroughly reading a company's literature and its Franchise Disclosure Document, calling and visiting existing franchisees, and consulting with an attorney and an accountant. Here's where slowing down makes sense: You should only buy a fast-growing franchise after you've taken the time to conduct a careful investigation.
