We track the financial and operational performance of both private and public franchises operating in the United States and use this information to support our private equity group, investment firm, and financial sector clients with information and analysis that uncovers unique acquisition opportunities within the franchising market. Created to highlight franchising’s financial movement in relation to the rest of the industry, we have been following trends in the stocks for more than 10 years now, the culmination of which is FRANdex and FRANdex+M.
FRANdex tracks the performance, based on market capitalization, of 58 U.S.-based publicly-traded companies that use the franchising business model.
Collectively the companies operate 107 franchise brands. All index levels are normalized to 1,000 at Q1 2006 for comparison purposes and all remaining periods are adjusted accordingly. FRANdex+M includes the McDonald’s Corporation. Since McDonald’s represents more than 25% of the overall market capitalization of publicly-traded franchise companies, it is excluded from FRANdex but included in FRANdex+M for comparative purposes. FRANdex includes publicly traded companies where franchising is material to the company’s financial performance and business operations.
