At Franchise FastLane, we can’t help but highlight our highly selective process in determining the brands that make up our best-in-class inventory. But, from time to time, it’s always nice to provide evidence that backs up our claims. One such occasion just occurred last week, as Entrepreneur just released their 2023 Top New Franchises List. This compilation of new and emerging brands paints a picture of the most promising franchise opportunities on the market today.


The brands featured on this prestigious list are among the newest stars in the franchising world, which were compiled by reviewing concepts who have previously been submitted for the Franchise 500 list but only began operations after 2015. Earning a spot on this list is based on an average score from more than 150 data points such as initial startup costs, size, growth, franchisor support, brand strength, and financials. Franchise FastLane is proud to share that four of our 20+ best-in-class brands made the list in 2023! Below are the individual rankings for each brand on Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchises, and a brief paragraph for each franchise opportunity.
