KOA was ranked 131st from nearly 1,000 franchise brands under consideration. Only 200 of the top franchise brands made the final list.
“The Top Franchise ranking was determined by taking companies that applied for this year’s Franchise 500, and analyzing additional factors such as social media followers, system size, number of years in business, number of years franchising, and overall reputation – and looking at how they all combine to form lasting relationships with fans,” said a statement on Entrepreneur.com’s website.
The statement said other factors considered when ranking companies were cost and fees; size and growth; franchisor support; brand strength; and financial strength and stability.
The NO. 1 franchisor on the list was KFC US LLC, followed by Dunkin Donuts, McDonald’s, Subway and Baskin-Robbins.
