Considered the most prestigious and comprehensive of the various franchise rankings, the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 is based on a variety of objective, quantifiable criteria such as financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. The editors also consider the number of years a company has been in business as well as such items as the length of time a company has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. Financial data is analyzed by an independent CPA.

The #40 position for 2015, however, matches our previous highest ranking and is a testament to the outstanding team of professionals at the corporate office as well as our dedicated and passionate franchisees around the world.
They deserve all the congratulations for this honor.
