RE/MAX, LLC was named the number one real estate franchise for the eighth consecutive year in the annual Franchise Times Top 200 listing. The company was also listed in the top 10 franchises overall, an accomplishment attributed to its steady increase in the number of locations and continued growth.
RE/MAX has ascended the ranks steadily for the past few years, ranking number eight overall in 2016, up from number 11 in 2015 and number 12 in 2014.
The company’s closest competitors in the overall franchise category were Keller Williams Realty at number 22 and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at number 52.
The growth of RE/MAX sales countered the trend of the 10 largest franchised brands collectively losing system-wide sales for the first time in the history of the Franchise Times Top 200+. The overall standings for top 10 were, listed from first to last, McDonald’s, 7-11, KFC, Burger King, Subway, Ace Hardware, Pizza Hut, RE/MAX, Wendy’s and Marriott Hotels and Resorts.
