2016 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 these "mega" franchisees operate, but also the brands they favor. While the list is dominated by food brands, it 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 franchise empire, take a gander at what the "big guys" are buying--it just might help you in your growth choices in 2016.
