Franchising is one of the most resilient industries and now is the best time in more than 35 years to open a franchise, particularly in the business-to-business space.
WEST PALM BEACH, FL, February 22, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- United Franchise Group (UFG), the global leader for entrepreneurs, announces that four of its affiliated brands were recognized among the top 500 franchises in the U.S. as part of Entrepreneur's Franchise 500®, the world's first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Transworld Business Advisors (#74), Signarama (#110) Venture X (#261) and Fully Promoted (#319) were included on this year's prestigious list, which measures success by looking at outstanding performance in unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.
"Franchising is one of the most resilient industries and now is the best time in more than 35 years to open a franchise, particularly in the business-to-business space," said Ray Titus, CEO of United Franchise Group. "Throughout the pandemic, many people have launched their own businesses because they want to be their own boss. We are seeing this trend benefit our business-to-business concepts because these new businesses are all looking for ways to attract customers, and all of the ranked UFG brands do just that."
For the second year in a row, Transworld Business Advisors (#74), which helps people buy or sell a business, was the top-ranked UFG brand on the list, and once again it was the only business brokerage franchise to be ranked. Fully Promoted (#319), which creates branded apparel and promotion products to help companies increase brand awareness, also earned the distinction of ranking best in category in the embroidery and screen-printing category. Co-working space franchise Venture X (#261) provides a versatile co-working venue that also promotes networking among members, and the largest family-owned sign franchise Signarama (#110) both moved up in rankings.
In addition, UFG's online networking group Network Lead Exchange, fast casual restaurant The Great Greek Mediterranean Grill and submarine sandwich shop Jon Smith Subs were recognized on the list, but not ranked.
Over its 43 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. The ranking of the UFG brands is a testament to their strength as potential franchise opportunities.
