CARMEL, Ind., Feb. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Wild Birds Unlimited is again being honored as one of the world's top franchises. The Indiana-based bird feeding and nature specialty supply franchise earned its latest recognition on the Entrepreneur Franchise 500® list.
Wild Birds Unlimited is ranked No. 186 in the newly released rankings for 2021, thanks to consistent brand strength and continued growth. Despite competing against a record number of applicants for the 2021 list, the most recent placement marks WBU's ninth Top-200 ranking in the last 10 years.
"Every recognition is an honor, but few lists are as widely respected as the Franchise 500®," said WBU's Chief Development Officer Paul Pickett. "We couldn't be prouder of our franchisees for their effort to pivot successfully during 2020, and couldn't be more thankful to the new franchisees who believed in our brand enough to join in our growth last year. This ranking is testimony that our model can withstand a difficult environment, especially with the buy-in from those who execute it."
The Entrepreneur Franchise 500® rankings are compiled after analysis of more than 150 data points, on which each franchise is given a cumulative score. The key factors of evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores earn their ranking on the list.
