What’s the top franchise in the US? Each year, Entrepreneur magazine compiles the industry’s most comprehensive franchise ranking, creating the Franchise 500. The survey uses financial data to evaluate objective, quantifiable measures for each franchise operation, especially financial strength, stability, size, and overall growth of the company. This week, we’ll look at the top ten on Entrepreneur’s 2010 list.
