Once Again Named to Entrepreneur’s “Franchise 500”


Entrepreneur.com has just announced its 33rd Annual Franchise 500 rankings and we are once again honored to be ranked in three relevant categories.  Edible Arrangements ranked #42 on the Franchise 500 list, and in the top 40 for two significant subcategories: fastest growing (#31) and American’s Top Global Franchises (#39)!

The rankings show popular industries and franchising trends. To be considered for the list franchise companies must supply full Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs) or Canadian Disclosure Documents, and these documents are then verified by Entrepreneur.  All companies are judged by the same objective criteria: financial strength and stability, growth rate, size of the system, number of years a company has been in business, the length of time it has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, and percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. Financial data is analyzed by an independent CPA.

It is an honor to be recognized as a top franchise opportunity for people seeking to own their own business and be their own boss, and we congratulate all the other winners.  You can check out the rankings at entrepreneur.com/franchise500.
