2014 Mega 99 Rankings

Each year we work with FRANdata to compile a list of the country’s largest multi-unit franchisee organizations. Based on total unit count, the rankings show not only the number of units they operate, but also the brands favored by these “mega” operators. The list is dominated by food brands, but also includes non-food concepts such as business services (tax preparation), consumer services (automotive), and lodging. Building a multi-unit empire is a matter of taste, opportunity, passion, and comfort level. If you’re looking to expand and diversify your own growing empire, seeing what the “big guys” are buying for their portfolios may help guide you in your choices.
