Champs is listed as No. 378 on the coveted list that saw more than 1,000 applications.
Champs Chicken, one of the three successful hot food brands by PFSbrands, was named to Entrepreneur’s 2019 Franchise 500 list, ranking No. 378. The annual ranking, now in its 40th year, is the world’s first and most comprehensive franchise ranking.
“We are proud that Champs Chicken has been named to the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list again this year,” said CEO Shawn Burcham. “It’s a testament to the continual work that our franchisees do to provide a great service to their customers, as well as remind us at PFSbrands that our hard work helping support our franchisees pays off.”
This year, more than 1,000 companies applied for the ranking. Those that rose to the top reveal the latest trends as well as the companies that continue to evolve to keep going strong year after year. Companies are evaluated on five key factors: (1) costs & fees; (2) size & growth; (3) support; (4) brand strength; and (5) financial strength & stability.
After celebrating its 20th anniversary earlier last year, PFSbrands continues to gain momentum and recognition in the foodservice industry. It’s been recognized for four straight years as a Certified Great Place to work, was recently named by the Great Game of Business as a recipient of the All-Star Champion Award, and was named one of INC. Magazine’s “Fastest Growing Privately-Held Companies in the USA” for nine consecutive years.
