43 Francorp Clients Listed on the Franchise Times 200 List

The Francorp team is proud to announce, as part of a recent Franchise Times Top 200 Franchise Systems report, that 43 current and former clients have made the list. Published in October, the Franchise Times 200 lists the top 200 franchises in the world based on revenue. Who made the list? What does this say for the franchising industry? What trends can you expect in the coming years for the industry?

The Franchise Times 200

The Franchise Times 200 is an annual ranking of the top franchise systems in the world. With a combined $590 Billion in total sales in 2013, the top 200 franchise systems continue to grow through domestic and international expansion.

This industry, which has been steadily growing since the recession, is led by these 200 top franchises.

Key Facts:

  • The number of international locations operated or franchised by companies on the top 200 increased by 10.3% in 2013 (1.3% domestic)
  • The average large franchise system now has 36.3% of locations outside the US
  • The sales in the top 200 has grown, up 4% from 2012 ($567 billion to $590 billion)
  • Private equity loves franchising due to the stability and investment from franchisees
  • Franchisors are seeing more interest from franchisees. The amount of franchised locations has grown from 79% in 1999 to 85% in 2013.
  • Competition is coming from smaller franchises. The overall sales of the top 10 franchises has decreased, meaning now is a good of time as ever to start.
