About the Top Global Franchises

Franchising is part of the international business lexicon. Even if people in China or India or Brazil aren't familiar with the word "franchise," it's a sure bet they're familiar with McDonald's, Subway, KFC and hundreds of other U.S.- and Canada-based franchises that have international appeal.

If you've been thinking about buying a franchise--in the U.S. or any other country--consider this ranking of the top 200 North American franchisors that are seeking international franchisees. To compile this ranking, we took each company's 2013¬†Franchise 500®¬†score, then adjusted it to give extra weight to international size and growth.

This ranking is not intended to endorse, recommend or promote any particular franchise. Rather, it's a research tool you can use to compare franchises. It's imperative that you conduct an in-depth investigation--including consulting an attorney and an accountant, reading all literature and disclosure documents provided by the franchisor, and visiting existing franchise locations to speak with current franchisees--before investing in any franchise opportunity.
