Franchise Direct Top 100 Global Franchises

Monday March 7, 2016

In February, Cartridge World was named to Franchise Direct’s 2016 Top-100 Global Franchise Award! With over 1,000 Cartridge World locations across more than 50 countries, Cartridge World is the global leader in the $80 billion imaging aftermarket industry − serving millions of business and residential customers annually. 

Each of the franchises that appear in The Top 100 Global Franchises have excelled at international expansion, investing time and resources to acquire linguistic capabilities while combining them with cultural sensitivities. Due to the dismantling of trade barriers, franchises have achieved better economies of scale which allow them to grow and develop in foreign markets. Other important variables that are considered are:

  • System size, based on number of units
  • Company sales revenue
  • Stability and growth
  • Support for prospective and current franchisees
  • Environmental policies
  • Corporate citizenship
