Entrepreneur magazine released the 2019 Franchise 500, and Moe’s Southwest Grill® made the cut! Franchise 500 celebrates the latest trends and evolving brands in the franchise industry. To determine the ranking, Entrepreneur evaluates franchises on five components: cost and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
With more than 1,000 applicants this year, making the list was not an easy feat. Despite the intense competition, the strength of Moe’s Southwest Grill® as a brand and franchise concept was recognized once again. Moe’s Southwest Grill® ranked #149 on the 40th annual Franchise 500, climbing 70 spots since last year! The support of parent company, FOCUS Brands®, has enabled the brand to improve and grow – even after nearly 20 years in business.
Teams specializing in real estate, development, operations, marketing, supply chain, and IT work together to ensure that Moe’s Southwest Grill® franchise owners have all the necessary tools to succeed. From site selection to opening day marketing campaigns, the dedicated teams at FOCUS Brands® are there to help. Even after opening day, Franchise Business Consultants visit restaurants to ensure that operations are running smoothly. Additionally, FOCUS Brands® leverages its buying power as a global franchisor and developer and helps franchise owners’ bottom lines with cost savings.
