Our 40th Annual

Franchise 500 Ranking

We are proud to present Entrepreneur’s 40th annual Franchise 500®. From regulations to trends to demographics, the franchise industry has experienced its fair share of change since that very first Franchise 500 was published way back in 1980. But the industry keeps going strong, offering companies of all different stripes an effective mode of expansion, and affording thousands of aspiring entrepreneurs the opportunity to open their own business within an established brand. And Entrepreneur continues to celebrate them all with what is still the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking.
