Creative World School Ranked a Top Franchise in Entrepreneur’s Highly Competitive 40th Annual Franchise 500® Rankings

By: Shaun Maciejewski

Creative World School is proud to celebrate our latest ranking in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, as evidenced by the fact that Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, Creative World School is ranked for the second year in a row, with a 32 place increase as #364 on the 2019 list of best franchises. Placement is based on a franchise brand’s outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

“As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500®, it’s a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology.”

To set the rankings, each franchise is 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 ranking order.

Over its 40 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. “Our ranking among the top franchisors is a testament to the strength and value of our company as a business opportunity,” said Marianne Whitehouse, CEO of Creative World School. “This honor, along with the continued successes of our franchisees, are clear indicators that we are a leading brand in early child education.”

Creative World School is poised for continued expansion in 2019 through multi-site owner development and the addition of new franchisee to their brand.
