Some companies aren’t content with becoming a household name in just one nation; they want to conquer the world. And the brands that are doing it best are collected right here, on Entrepreneur’s top global franchises list. These franchises prove that opportunity knows no borders.

To determine who came out on top, we took our Franchise 500 formula with its 150-plus data points and adjusted it to give extra weight to international size and growth. Other areas evaluated by the formula included costs and fees, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Only companies seeking new franchisees outside the U.S. that had already established a minimum of five units abroad as of July 2016 were considered.

Please understand, our rankings are not intended as a recommendation of any particular company. It’s vital to do your own research before investing in a franchise. Read the company’s legal documents, consult with an attorney and an accountant, and talk to existing and former franchisees to determine whether the opportunity is a good fit for you—and your corner of the world. 

Head over to our Top Global Franchise page to see who made the cut.
