GREENVILLE, S.C. – 9Round Franchising, LCC, was recently named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s second annual Top Franchise Brands list. This list recognizes the 200 franchisors that have built the strongest brands, based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s 2018 Franchise 500 ranking. 9Round was ranked this year at number 198.

“As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our brand this year, we are proud to be named to the list of Top Franchise Brands once again,” said Shannon Hudson, CEO and Founder of 9Round. “Recognition like this reminds us that what we are doing is working, and it motivates us to continue to grow and compete with ourselves to be better with each year.”

To determine which franchises have the strongest brands, Entrepreneur analyzed factors such as social media followers, system size, number of years in business, number of years franchising, and overall reputation—and looked at how they all combine to form lasting relationships with fans. 9Round’s position on the ranking shows that the brand has truly made a name for itself through franchising.

“Creating a strong brand is paramount in franchising, and the companies on our list are examples of how to do it right,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur’s editor in chief. “After years and even decades in business, they’ve managed to maintain a balance between staying true to their roots and constantly evolving to stay relevant.”
