Entrepreneur has released its list of the 10 top franchises in 2014.
Entrepreneur’s process to create this 10 top list required franchises to take part in a survey and submit data from July 2011 through July 2013. 853 made the first version of the list. However, the list was cut done to only include the top 500 franchises.
Here are the 10 top franchises of 2014 from that list.
