100 Lowest Franchise Failure Rates

Lowest Failure Rates

100 Franchises with the Lowest Failure Rates

Everyone wants to invest in a successful franchise right? 

After reviewing nearly 2,000 franchises, we have compiled the list of 100 franchises with the lowest failure rates

Some of these franchise brands you may recognize, like Dominos, Texas Roadhouse, and Hilton Hotels.

Others are smaller regional players, with most of their franchise units located in the same geographic area. 

 

Franchise Failure Rate Calculation

franchises

We at Vetted Biz calculated the failure rates for almost 2000 franchises within a three year period, either 2016-2018 or 2017-2019, depending on the available data. 

Franchise failures comprise franchise terminations, franchise non renewals and franchises that ceased operations for other reasons. All of these metrics are accessible in Item 20 of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)

For the purpose of this study we have not included franchises reacquired by franchisor nor transferred to a new owner. These are important ‘franchise for sale’ metrics to analyze in parallel with the franchise failure rate and other key franchise metrics. 

Average Failure Rate of Less than 2% for Top 100 Franchises

All of the following franchises have a failure rate of less than 2%, and many have a 0% failure rate. 

Sometimes failure rates can be misleading, especially if there is a lack of franchise openings or franchises to begin with in the three year period. Therefore, we made sure that none of the franchises on this list had less than five franchises at the beginning of the three year period. 

Finally, the list is organized from lowest failure rates to highest, with franchises that had more units given more weight than franchises with fewer units. For example, Kona Ice and IPG Florida both have a 0.0% failure rate, but since Kona Ice has a significantly higher number of total units, it is ranked higher than IPG Florida.

sustainability of a franchise

While failure rate is an important metric when considering the sustainability of a franchise, it is not the only metric that needs to be considered. This is especially true if you have a limited amount of capital to invest in — sometimes even the most successful franchises can have very high upfront and maintenance costs, which the average investor may not be able to afford.
