TOP FOOD & RESTAURANT FRANCHISESWEEK OF FEBRUARY 18, 2024

Presented by: International Franchise Professionals Group

Top 10 Food & Restaurant Franchises

When it comes to franchising, you may first think about food and restaurants because some of the most popular franchises are fast-food restaurants. There are over one million restaurants in the U.S. alone. Owning a restaurant franchise allows you to become an integral part of your community. Many fast-food franchises are also now using food delivery services, like Grubhub and UberEats. 
Since there is so much competition, many franchised restaurants have distinguished themselves by offering healthier food and drink options and providing exceptional service. You also don’t need to have prior restaurant ownership experience, as you will learn everything you need to know from the franchisor.

Here are the top food & restaurant franchises for week ending February 18, 2024. The IFPG uses its internal data collected from our portal to identify which food & restaurant franchises had the most activity in the past week. This ranking system is not based on franchise sales, franchisee success rates or number of units open. We use our ranking system to help identify new and upcoming franchise systems. This ranking system should not be used to make a decision on which franchise to buy, it was solely created for internal purposes and for our IFPG Members.
