In January, Entrepreneur magazine announced Cartridge World as one of the country’s top 100 franchises. The announcement was made as part of the annual Franchise 500® list, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking, released in the magazine’s January edition. Cartridge World joins the likes of Subway and McDonald’s as a growing international brand with stores in more than 50 countries.
Throughout its 35 years in existence, Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 is a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for entrepreneurs looking to start their own business. Cartridge World’s rank, number one in its category and 90 overall, reinforces its strength in the competitive printing and office supply industry.
Dedicated customer service is what has kept Cartridge World on Entrepreneur’s prestigious Franchise 500 list for the past six years.
The rankings for all 500 companies are determined using an exclusive formula that takes into account objective and quantifiable factors, with the most important factors being financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. After all financial data is analyzed by an independent CPA, all franchises are given a cumulative score, and the 500 franchises with the highest scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.
