The 2016 Franchise 500

Kahala Brands is proud to announce that Blimpie, America’s Sub Shop, was honored as a top franchise in the 2016 Franchise 500 list released earlier this year. Blimpie was one of nearly 1,000 companies who made the first cut and were fully evaluated for the Franchise 500 list; eventually earning the #304 spot.

All companies considered for the Franchise 500 list must supply a full Franchise Disclosure Document and go through a full vetting process. The most important factors considered by Entrepreneur’s team of judges include: financial strength, growth rate, and size of system. Additionally, years in business, length of time in franchising, start-up costs, litigation, percentage of terminations, and financing options for franchise prospects are also considered.

The entire Blimpie team is thrilled to be honored by such a prestigious and well-respected annual report of the top franchises in the country.
