Taco John’s Ranked in Top 25% of Franchises on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 41st Annual Franchise 500® List

February 26, 2020 // Franchising.com // CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Taco John’s International Inc. (Taco John’s) announced today that it has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500® list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Taco John’s was ranked #115 on the list, firmly placing it in the top 25% of franchises. This marks the 26th year the Mexican quick-service franchise has been ranked on the prestigious list.

“This recognition from Entrepreneur speaks to our incredibly strong franchise opportunity and our impressive positioning in the restaurant space,” said Brooks Speirs, vice president for franchise development at Taco John’s. “The ranking comes at an important time for our brand as we expand franchise development efforts and introduce exciting initiatives in 2020.”

The key factors that go into the ranking 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. 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 Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “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.”

As Taco John’s ramps up franchising this year, it is targeting well-capitalized franchisees with experience in restaurants or as executives leading high-performing teams. The brand plans to ink agreements representing 50 units this year alone.

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. Taco John’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
