America’s Best Franchises, according to Forbes magazine…
(UnhappyFranchisee.Com) What are America’s best franchise opportunities?
Using data compiled by franchise research company FRANdata, Forbes magazine has compiled its list of the 30 best franchises in America. Forbes ranked what it believes to be the ten best franchises in each of three investment categories:
- — franchises requiring an investment between $0 – $250,000,
- — franchises requiring an investment between $250,001 – $500,000,
- — and franchises requiring an investment of $500,001 or greater.

Methodology: According to Forbes,
FRANdata did screen for two key criteria over those years that give some indication of market demand for the brand and overall support for its franchisees: growth rate and the so-called continuity rate. Continuity gives some indication of the ongoing success of the stores… Other factors that affected the ranking: a franchisor’s transparency in reporting historical performance, which lets prospective franchisees evaluate the opportunity; support for franchisees (financing and the like); and recurring revenue self-sufficiency (does the franchisor depend on revenues from selling additional franchises to sustain ongoing operations?)
