Subway is Top Franchise of Year...Again

IRVINE, Calif.Entrepreneur magazine released results of its 31st annual Franchise 500. Subway topped the list for the ninth time in 10 years. Rounding out the top five were McDonald's, 7-Eleven, Hampton Inn and Supercuts.

A total of 21 sandwich shops made the list this year and, overall, the top-performing franchises were those that didnt cost a lot to set up and/or catered to budget-minded consumers.
