Which franchises have shown themselves to be the most profitable? It’s a question many entrepreneurs ask, and this page provides some answers by ranking franchises according to their average annual profits. These companies don’t all report their data the same way, though, which is why we have grouped them into tiers as follows:
Tier 1 franchises are those that average more than $200,000 in annual profits. The Tier 2 franchises have annual average profits ranging from $100,000 to $200,000. Franchises in Tier 3 include those showing less than $100,000 in average annual profits. The franchises within each tier appear in order from highest to lowest average annual profits.
Note that just because one franchise is ranked higher than another within a tier doesn’t mean it’s automatically a better choice. It’s better to think of this data as a way to easily choose a number of franchises you want to examine more thoroughly.
Not all franchise companies provide data about their average annual profits, and you’ll find a listing of those at the bottom of this page as well.
This page will change as we analyze each company’s Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). Every time we publish a new FDD Talk post, as of April 28, 2019, and moving forward, the rankings here will be updated. You’ll want to bookmark this page so you can easily come back for the latest rankings!
