Middle River, Maryland-based Image360, a global signage, graphics and printing franchisor, announces that it has once again been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list. Image360 was rated No. 317 overall.
Image360 is a member of Alliance Franchise Brands franchise network and has more than 315 locations currently throughout the United States, Canada and England.
“We are honored to receive this ranking,” says Burke Cueny, vice president of marketing and communications for the Alliance Franchise Brands. “We look forward to building upon this growth in 2019, as we form new relationships, expand into new markets, and offer our existing franchisees continued support.”
According to Image360, the key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
“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.”
