Many business experts will be prognosticating over the holiday season over which franchises will be the blue chip investments for the next decade. One of the franchise industry's most trusted barometers has been released. This analysis of the best performing business out there will tell us a lot about which franchises are primed for a successful era duing the Teens.
The Enrepreneur Franchise 500 is one of the most eagerly anticipated examinations of the state of franchising and the magazine has just released its rankings for 2010. The magazine has given us much to think about for the coming weeks. A hotel chain in the top five. The rise and rise of the sandwich franchise. The industry shaking off the worst effects of the recession. These are some of the talking points that will have intrigued many people in franchising.
What’s interesting is that these rankings also mirror Franchise Direct’s Top 100 Global Franchises in a few ways. Our top three global franchises are also the top Entrepreneur’s top three (although the leaders have been flip-flopped). There’s clearly a correlation between global superiority and top franchising results. Also we were happy to see that Jani-King, one of the top non-QSR franchises on our list, made the Top 10.
We’ll have much more to say about these rankings in the New Year. For now, here are Entrepreneur’s Top 10 for 2010:
- H&R Block
- Dunkin’ Donuts
