School of Rock Recognized as Top Child Enrichment Brand in Entrepreneur’s 41st Annual Franchise 500
January 23, 2020 // Franchising.com // CANTON, Mass. - School of Rock, the leader in performance-based music education, was recently ranked number 219 in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500, with the brand claiming the top ranking in the child enrichment category.
Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become a competitive measure for franchisors as well as a primary research tool for potential franchisees. School of Rock’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
“Inclusion in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking as the top child enrichment brand is an honor and validates the School of Rock family’s tireless work,” said Rob Price, CEO of School of Rock. “This is an incredibly exciting time to be part of School of Rock as we continue to expand across the globe and fulfill our mission to enrich lives through music.”
The key factors that go into the evaluation for the Franchise 500 ranking include franchise 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.
"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 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."
