In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is then given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranked order.

"We're so thrilled to have secured a prominent position in the top half of the Franchise 500® list for the third consecutive year, surpassing our previous ranking," stated Jonathan (JT) Trapesonian, Head of Franchising & Real Estate for The Habit Burger Grill. "The Habit stands out as a distinctive investment in the burger franchise landscape, with our franchise model seamlessly combining fresh, handcrafted menu offerings with cutting-edge technology, and unparalleled support for our franchisees. This recognition marks a fantastic start to 2024, and we anticipate leveraging this momentum to achieve even more milestones in the upcoming year."
