Top 100 Franchises Global Ranking for 2012

We are very proud to announce that EmbroidMe has made it into the Top 100 Global Franchises for 2012. EmbroidMe placed #97 on the list this year.

The Top 100 Global Franchises have been selected from thousands of franchises that have invested in international expansion strategies and have been ranked using an objective and measurable criteria.
This criterion includes:
  • System size based on numbers of units
  • Sales revenue for the system
  • Stability and growth
  • Number of years in operation
  • Market expansion
The ranking is also based on the implementation of:
  • Best practice in the areas of franchisee support and training
  • Environmental policy
  • Social responsibility
Given the present economy, consideration was also given to the availability of financing to franchisees, and whether it was direct financing, SBA approved or third party financing. The information was gathered from Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs), email surveys, telephone interviews and published industry sources.
Each franchise which appeared in The Top 100 list has excelled at international expansion, investing time and resources to acquire linguistic capabilities while combining them with cultural sensitivities. Due to globalization and the dismantling of trade barriers, franchises have achieved better economies of scale which allow them to grow and develop in foreign markets.
