January 27, 2023

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Stretch Zone was recognized as one of the top 500 franchises in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking. The 44th annual Entrepreneur Franchise 500® is recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees and Stretch Zone earned a spot as a result of its outstanding performance.

Through Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 44-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The editorial team researches and assesses several factors that go into the evaluation including costs, fees, size, growth, support, brand strength, 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.  

“It is an honor to be recognized by Entrepreneur and other highly accredited publications. It’s  rewarding to know that our franchise family continues to be satisfied with our support and business opportunity and our clients are just as happy as well — without this we wouldn’t be growing as fast as we are,” said Tony Zaccario, President and CEO of Stretch Zone. “At Stretch Zone, creating a welcoming environment for everyone, whether it be a franchisee, practitioner or client, is our top priority and the reason we have sustained such strong brand recognition.”

In addition to receiving this highly accredited honor, Stretch Zone was recently recognized as a 2023 Top 200 Franchise by Franchise Business Review. In the 18th annual ranking based off owner satisfaction, Stretch Zone was ranked 32 in the “Top 50 Large” category, beating out its competition to land on the list.
