Our 39th Annual

Franchise 500 Ranking

Welcome to Entrepreneur's 39th annual Franchise 500®. That’s right, we’ve been putting together the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking for almost four decades. And this year’s turned out to be one of our most competitive ever. In fact, for the first time in 25 years, more than 1,000 companies applied to be a part of the list. That means if you’re interested in buying a franchise, you’ve got more options than ever, from the established industries still dominating the top of the rankings, like restaurants, hair care, and real estate, to emerging trends quickly climbing their way up, like smartphone repairs, trampoline parks, and paint-and-sip studios. So how do we determine which companies come out on top? Using our proprietary ranking formula, which is always evolving to keep up with the ever-changing franchise world.
