Huddle House Earns High Franchise Marks
Huddle House announced that it has been named to Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list, which is an exclusive ranking of the 500 largest franchises. Based on the company’s worldwide system sales and number of locations, Huddle House has been rated number 224 alongside the largest franchises in its industry.
This recognition validates the sales growth the company has experienced in the past year. In Huddle House’s 2018 fiscal year (May 2017 – April 2018), the brand increased system-wide sales by 2.5 percent and average unit volume grew by more than 7 percent.
“It’s an honor to be included on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ list,” says Michael Abt, president and CEO of Huddle House. "This ranking is a direct result of our franchise partners’ hard work and dedication to succeed. We look forward to continuing this momentum as we expand into new markets and offer continued support to our existing franchisees.”
Using a combination of companies’ voluntary reports and the most recent franchise disclosure documents, the Franchise Times Top 200+ is an annual ranking of the 500 largest franchise systems in the United States by global systemwide sales, based on the previous year's performance. The project is the result of a five-month research and reporting effort each year that results in the most credible and objective franchise ranking available.
To qualify for the ranking, companies must be a legal United States franchise, with its headquarters based in the United States or at least 10 percent of their total units located in the country. Franchisees must also own at least 15 percent of the company’s total units. The 200 franchises with the top global systemwide sales, including total sales for both franchise and company units, receive the highest rankings.
