Fazoli’s Ranked #10 in Entrepreneur’s Top 200 Food-Based Franchises of 2017!
This just in: The Fazoli’s franchise was selected by Entrepreneur Magazine to be featured in their Top 200 Food-Based Franchises of 2017 — and boy, were we excited!
Entrepreneur’s June 2017 print edition recently hit shelves, and so did its Top 200 Food-Based Franchises list for the current year. So naturally, we were anxious to get our hands on a copy to scope out the honorees. Imagine our delight at finding Fazoli’s Franchising Systems ranked #10 in the Misc. Quick-Services Restaurants category!
Each year, the franchising world grows larger and larger, adding new industry categories from all across the spectrum. However, as Entrepreneur points out, one category has remained “an industry cornerstone” throughout — and that category encompasses all things food. The magazine reports that nearly “a quarter of the 988 companies that applied for the 2017 Franchise 500 list were food-related.”
Not only that, but Entrepreneur also confirmed that quick-service restaurants — that’s us! — “provided more establishments, jobs, and payroll and generated more output and contributed more GDP than any other single line of business,” according to the latest Economic Impact of Franchised Businesses report.
Rankings for this prestigious honor were determined based on overall franchise performance when run through Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 formula. This comprehensive formula analyzed each of the top 200 franchises in terms of costs and fees, size and growth, franchise support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
As you can see, the Fazoli’s franchise is booming, but don’t take our word for it, or even Entrepreneur’s. Allow our 17 consecutive quarters of same-store sales growth and counting to speak for themselves!
As a top ranked fast casual franchise in a growing industry, it’s a great time to be a Fazoli’s franchise owner! If you think you’re up for the challenge, contact Sam Nelson at 1-800-446-4368 to learn about our current expansion opportunities, or fill out our information request form online.
