The Top 100 Global Franchises share the keys to business success at any level including: a well-defined business identity, a clear business plan, a commitment to training and support, and the ability to innovate to keep pace with ever-changing social and economic conditions.”


Using a methodology that goes beyond financial performance and system size, the Top 100 ranking is compiled by taking into account a host of criteria, giving each criterion a weighted value.”

That said, should you base your franchise buying decision on a top franchise list like the one I’m about to share with you?

Heck no!

You should always base your choice in a franchise to own on several things…which may or may not include the franchise concept’s inclusion in a “list.”

Note: the dominant franchise model in use today-and the one featured in most of the top franchise lists, is the business format franchise.


4 Things To Base Your Franchise Choice On

For one, you need to make sure you’re partnering with a top franchise business system.

Secondly, the franchise you’re interested in should fit within your budget.

Note: The most important thing to do before you come up with a number that’s the upper-limit of what you’ll invest in a franchise is to calculate your net worth.

But the most important thing you can do to increase your chances of success as a franchise owner is to do top-shelf research.
