March 09, 2023

DENVER – March 9, 2023 – AlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, received a prestigious honor after being named to Entrepreneur’s first-ever Franchise 500 Hall of Fame list. This list honors the elite franchise brands that have ranked in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking for 25 or more years consecutively. AlphaGraphics has ranked for 36 years in a row in Entrepreneur’s Annual Franchise 500.

“Being named to the Franchise 500 Hall of Fame is a testament to our team’s dedication to the overall success and growth of AlphaGraphics,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “From leadership to the individual franchise owners, we always strive for excellence. Although there have been turbulent times, AlphaGraphics is always evolving and finding new ways to make our brand stand out from the rest.

“Making it on this list showcases that we are one of the best franchise systems out there. Of course, this doesn’t make us complacent. We will continue to grow and increase our reach in the coming years. It’s an exciting time for AlphaGraphics.”

Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 has been evaluating and ranking franchise opportunities for 44 years. The company’s proprietary ranking formula analyzes brands based on more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

The ranking grows more competitive each year with 1,321 companies applying for a chance at a spot in the top 500 in 2023. Only 49 franchise brands have managed to rank every year for the last 25 years or more, and thus earn a spot in the 2023 Hall of Fame.

“We’re honoring these A-list brands who have shown through and through their commitment to growth, to their franchisees, and to their communities,” said Entrepreneur Senior Vice President of Franchising Liane Caruso. “Ranking in the Franchise 500 is highly competitive, and achieving that distinction year after year is quite an accomplishment. We’re thrilled to recognize so many brands who have thrived over the years!”
