Top 500 Franchises for 2011

Entrepreneur magazine released their annual Franchise 500 list. The top 5 for 2011 were:
1. Hampton Hotels
2. am/pm
3. McDonald’s
4. 7-11
5. Supercuts

While there have been real estate franchises in the Top 50 several years ago, the highest real estate franchise in the 2011 list came in at #78.

When we were in Vegas, we shopped in a store that’s #415 on the list, Flip Flop Shops, which may be good fit for around here.

The table below lists Real Estate franchises, their 2011 ranking, and when their highest ranking has been in the Franchise 500 list.
