HUMAN Ranks on Franchise 500 as Entrepreneur Magazine’s Number One Vending Franchise

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 02, 2014

HUMAN ("Helping Unite Mankind and Nutrition"), America’s fastest growing healthy vending franchise and the leading distributor of convenient healthy foods, announces that Entrepreneur Magazine has ranked it as the number one vending franchise and number 281 overall in its 35th annual Franchise 500® list, the world’s most comprehensive franchise ranking.

Recognized by entrepreneurs and franchisors as a top competitive tool of measurement, the Franchise 500® ranked HUMAN based on its exceptional performance in areas including financial strength and stability, growth rate, and system size.

“We are thrilled to be ranked as the number one vending franchise and in the top 300 overall in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500,” said Sean Kelly, CEO and Co-Founder of HUMAN. “This ranking is a testament to the HUMAN team, who works tirelessly on behalf of our franchisees, and to our franchisees, who run their businesses as social entrepreneurs.”

Since 2008, HUMAN has expanded its services to include a breadth of opportunities such as healthy vending franchises and healthy micro markets, while also creating strategic partnerships to seamlessly yield locations for its franchisees, including partnerships with the YMCA and American Association of Cosmetology Schools. Additionally, HUMAN continually launches new technologies, including its new HUMAN Touch, a 46” touch screen healthy vending machine, to give its franchisees a competitive edge.

“Compiling the Franchise 500® every year gives us the opportunity to share data-driven insights, reflect on areas seeing progress and acknowledge the companies that have risen to the top,” says Amy Cosper, VP and editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Franchises play an important part in economic growth, and the companies in the ranking are leading the way with their continued and emerging business success.”

The rankings for all 500 companies are determined using an exclusive formula that takes into account objective and quantifiable factors. An independent CPA analyzes all financial data. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.

All franchises are given a cumulative score, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.

Over its 35 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for entrepreneurs. HUMAN’s position on the list reinforces its strength in the industry.
