March 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // Devens, Mass. - Learning Express Toys, the nation’s largest educational toy retailer, was recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Recognized by entrepreneurs and franchisors as a top competitive tool of measurement, the Franchise 500® places Learning Express Toys as number 271 for its exceptional performance in areas including financial strength and stability, growth rate, and brand power.

“We are proud to achieve this ranking, reflecting our continuing success and proven model after 30 years of business,” said Sharon DiMinico, founder and CEO of Learning Express Toys. “As the world of retail evolves, we empower our franchisees to create an unforgettable in-store experience for families.”

“We spend months gathering and crunching data in order to produce the Franchise 500 ranking. We’re proud of the result and the way it continues to be a resource for the franchise community,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Like every industry, franchising is ever-evolving and must smartly react to new technologies and consumer demands. We know it takes a lot to stay competitive, and are excited to celebrate those that do it best.”

“In order to reflect the evolving business world at large, we at Entrepreneur continue to evolve our annual ranking, too,” says Ryan Shea, president of Entrepreneur. “We’ve developed new ways to measure and analyze our collected data as new critical data points come into play. We take into account pertinent factors such as social media presence and financing availability, which have become increasingly important in today’s economy. The result is a more complete and relevant Franchise 500® that can serve as a valuable resource for our readers.”
