2022 Mega 99 Rankings

2022 Mega 99 Rankings

Each year we work with FRANdata to compile a list of the country’s largest multi-unit franchisee organizations. Based on total unit count, the rankings show not only the number of units these “mega” franchisees operate, but also their brands. While the list is dominated by food brands, it also includes non-food brands such as business services (tax preparation), consumer services (automotive), and lodging. If you’re looking to expand and diversify your own franchise empire, study what the “big guys” are buying—it just might help you with your own growth choices in 2020.

Notes: Seventh-ranked MUY! Companies was sold off in pieces in October 2021 and no longer exists. And of course the pandemic has skewed everyone.
