DENVER – Jan. 14, 2022 – AlphaGraphics, a leading franchisor of printing and marketing solutions, has been recognized as one of the top franchise brands after earning placement on Entrepreneur’s Franchisee 500 list. With appearances on the list over the past three years, AlphaGraphics ranked #375 this year.
“2021 presented its own unique challenges, but AlphaGraphics continues to evolve and find new ways to meet our customers’ needs,” said Bill McPherson, vice president of franchise development. “Our longevity in these rankings is a testament to the hard work of our headquarters and franchisees. We are continuing to build on our upward trajectory while increasing our number of franchises across the nation.”
In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 43-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors that go into the evaluation, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
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.
“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” says Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
AlphaGraphics was founded in 1970, and the company began offering franchise opportunities in 1979. For more information, visit http://www/alphagraphics.com.
