Fantastic Sams Named a Top Franchise Brand by Entrepreneur Magazine

October 17, 2018 // // BEVERLY, Mass. - Fantastic Sams is excited to announce it earned a spot in the top 100 of Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Franchise Brands list. This list recognizes the franchisors that have built the strongest brands, based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s 2018 Franchise 500® ranking.

Fantastic Sams, the oldest full-service family salon franchise in the U.S., is consistently ranked in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list because of the financial stability, brand strength and support it offers franchisees. The well-established brand has nearly 1,000 salons across North America with a goal of reaching 1,200 salons within the next five years.

“Creating a strong brand is paramount in franchising, and the companies on our list are examples of how to do it right,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur’s editor in chief. “After years and even decades in business, they’ve managed to maintain a balance between staying true to their roots and constantly evolving to stay relevant.”

To determine which franchises have the strongest brands for its Top Franchise Brands list, Entrepreneur analyzed factors such as social media followers, system size, number of years in business, number of years franchising and overall reputation — and looked at how they all combine to form lasting relationships with fans. Fantastic Sams’ position on the ranking shows that the brand has truly made a name for itself through franchising.
