Nestlé® Toll House® Café by Chip, a premium dessert destination franchise concept built based on the world's most powerful food name, was recognized for its continued growth in the 2012 Entrepreneur “Franchise 500,” ranking No. 460 in its 33rd annual list.
“To be recognized on this elite list of the nation’s top franchises is truly an honor for us, and our brand,” said Ziad Dalal, founder and president of Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip. “After more than 10 years of franchising, we are humbled by the continued growth and the success of our entire franchising system. This recognition speaks volumes about our company’s accomplishments, and we look forward to our success in the future.”
One of the world’s most comprehensive franchise rankings, the Franchise 500 list is based on objective, quantifiable measures of success from financial and statistical data. Recognizing the best franchises of 2011, the list takes into account important factors such as financial strength and stability as well as the growth rate and size of the franchise system. All franchises are given a cumulative score, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.
“Franchises are a great avenue to business ownership for those with the entrepreneurial spirit - and they’re playing a definitive role in driving the economy upward,” says Amy Cosper, VP and editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur. “Unit numbers from the Franchise 500 grew overall in 2010 and 2011, giving individuals a great place to begin investigating some of the brightest opportunities.”
