GYMGUYZ® Ranked A Top Franchise In Entrepreneur’s Highly Competitive 41st Annual Franchise 500®

January 21, 2020 // // PLAINVIEW, N.Y. - GYMGUYZ recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500 ranks GYMGUYZ as 274 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

"The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now,” says Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin’ that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs - because in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive."

The key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized in the Franchise 500 again this year,” said GYMGUYZ CEO Josh York. “We’re growing, but we’re only getting started. Changing people’s lives is what we do, and the most important thing to us continues to be servicing our clients and our franchisees.”

Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. The mobile fitness concept’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
