Healthcare Tops All Others in FT's Top 200+ Ranking
Franchise Times Top 200+ package publishes October 1.
Here are a few things I learned about franchising while preparing the Franchise Times Top 200+ package: Healthcare franchising is booming, with systemwide sales for the industry segment up 14 percent, better than all 11 other segments.
Fast-casual restaurants were up 10.2 percent, the second-biggest gainer. Meanwhile, sandwich chains and retailers posted negative results, dragged down by Subway and 7-Eleven, respectively.
Berkshire Hathaway Home Services and American Family Care ranked No. 1 and 2, respectively, in the percentage sales growth category, while Planet Fitness and Jersey Mike’s both posted 22 percent gains in unit growth.
There’s more, much more, in our exclusive research package, but I thought I’d whet your appetite. Ranking 500 U.S.-based franchises by systemwide sales, the Top 200+ posts and publishes Oct. 1.
