Largest Franchised Brands Back In the Game
Date:9/28/2017

The 200 largest U.S.-based franchisors grew their combined annual sales by more than $20 billion or 3.4 percent last year, to $616.4 billion, with most categories seeing across-the-board gains, according to the newly released Franchise Times Top 200+, an exclusive ranking of the 500 largest franchises.

The 10 largest franchised brands added $7.8 billion in sales, roaring back in 2016 after losing sales the prior year for the first time in the history of the ranking, which began in 1999 and is the result of a five-month research and reporting effort each year that results in the most credible and objective franchise ranking available, said Franchise Times Editor-in-Chief Beth Ewen.

“This year’s ranking shows that franchising is heating up after last year’s tepid performance, with the industry’s sales growth doubling the current U.S. inflation rate,” said Tom Kaiser, associate editor at Franchise Times who wrote the lead article for the project. “Most notable among the biggest players were RE/MAX, Domino’s, Chick-fil-A and Keller Williams Realty, all posting double-digit sales gains. By category, employment services and health-oriented franchises led the list with 9.4 percent and 6.9 percent sales gains.”

McDonald’s retains its spot atop the Franchise Times Top 200+ with a 2.8 percent gain in sales, with Domino’s up 10.1 percent and making it into the Top 10 for the first time. Orangetheory Fitness led all performers with an 111 percent increase in sales.

In an exclusive interview, Subway CEO Suzanne Greco describes life at the brand founded by her late brother, Fred DeLuca, and her efforts to turn around the world’s largest restaurant chain by units, where systemwide sales declined by $100 million last year. It is one of four exclusive CEO interviews included in this year’s ranking.
