Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
HUMAN (“Helping Unite Mankind And Nutrition”), an award-winning healthy vending franchise and the leading distributor of convenient healthy foods, has ranked on Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Best of the Best” in the vending category. This is the first time that “Vending” has appeared as a category on the list.
Found in the May issue of the magazine, the Best of the Best rankings are pulled from companies that made Entrepreneur's Franchise 500® and ranked at the top of their industry category.
Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® is the world’s first and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Recognized by entrepreneurs and franchisors as a top competitive tool of measurement, the Franchise 500® measures franchises’ financial strength and stability, growth rate, and system size.
HUMAN is the youngest franchise on the list (HUMAN has been franchising since 2012) with the average age of other ranked franchises coming in at 26 years. HUMAN is also the only Certified B Corporation to make the list. B Corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
News of HUMAN’s ranking on Entrepreneur magazine’s Best of the Best comes on the heels of additional rankings from Entrepreneur magazine, including: first in category as a “Top Homebased Franchise,” one of its "Top New Franchises for 2014" (at #12), a “Fastest-Growing Franchise” (at #51) and one of its “Franchise 500,” where HUMAN ranked first in category.
