TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® ranked a top franchise in Entrepreneur’s highly competitive 39th annual Franchise 500®

The brand moved up from No. 128 last year to No. 87 on the 2018 list.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK recently ranked 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, the Franchise 500® ranks TWO MEN AND A TRUCK as number 87 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

“We’re thrilled to receive this honor from Entrepreneur,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Compliance Director Pam Batten. “Our entire team works hard to support and offer our franchisees access to resources and subject matter experts in all areas of the business. Not only that, but we continue to adapt to the technology side of moving. We know people will always be moving, and the advancement of technology we continue to develop will not replace the need for moving, but will only enhance our ability to serve customers. With the addition of our mini-market concept in 2017, our franchise opportunity is even more accessible to people — more opportunity for business ownership and more opportunity for employment in areas that we may not have been able to place a franchise, allowing us to serve even more customers.”

"This year’s Franchise 500 ranking features both up-and-comers who bring fresh ideas to an ever-changing industry, as well as savvy stalwarts that have thrived for decades. We are proud to highlight and celebrate them all,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Our results show that the industry is strong—and that the most enduring franchisors are those who learn to balance innovation with reliability. That’s how to attract new customers while keeping the old ones happy.”

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.

Over its 39 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
