Franchises offer the independence of small business ownership supported by the benefits of a big business network and franchises have a higher rate of success than start-up businesses. The Top 100 has been designed, with the assistance of industry experts, to measure the quality of a franchise system over time. Rankings are mostly based on a formula created from various pieces of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that focus on financial stability, growth and sustainability. Hundreds of FDD's were studied this past year in an effort to bring you this ranking.
We also focused on evaluating franchise opportunities that fit the mold of what a typical Franchise Clique visitor seeks. That meant taking investment range and industry into account to create what we feel is truly a unique rankings list. So if you are looking for some of the more high ticket, recognizable names in franchising and don't see them, that by no means is a discredit to that franchise system. It simply means they were not part of our evaluation process.
Franchise Clique would like to thank the following people who's insight was invaluable and instrumental in the production of Franchise Clique's Top 100:
