Franchise Times Top 15 Stories of 2015


Looking back on the last 12 months proves it's been a great year here at Franchise Times. We've added two new staff writers (myself included!), created some great content, won some industry awards and have even seen a dramatic increase in our web traffic. Not bad for a year's work! 

Below is a list of our 15 most-clicked stories throughout the year. Examining your selections, it's clear our 20 to Watch coverage is very popular, and the celebrity factor is strong as seen in our stories on Fatburger, Rick Ross and Wahlburgers. 

A nice mix of features, special projects and personality profiles shows the diversity in franchising, and that our readers dig what we're up to. As always, we're hunting for feedback and suggestions, so don't be shy! In the meantime, enjoy this look back at the most popular Franchise Times stories throughout 2015.
