The Denver-based global franchisor, founded by Dave and Gail Liniger 44 years ago, RE/MAX was once again ranked in the top 10 of all franchises.
Franchise Times magazine has been the USA’s publication devoted exclusively to the global franchise community for almost two decades.
RE/MAX Australia Managing Director Michael Davoren said that being ranked the top real estate franchise year after year by Franchise Times was validation that RE/MAX is the worldwide leader in real estate.
“The annual ranking of the 500 largest US franchise systems is by global sales over the previous year.
“This also puts the RE/MAX brand up with legendary brands such as McDonald’s,” he said.
This year’s top 10 overall were (ranked 1-10) McDonald’s, 7-11, KFC, Burger King, Subway, Ace Hardware, Pizza Hut, RE/MAX, Domino’s and Marriott Hotels & Resorts.
Mr Davoren said Entrepreneur magazine had also named RE/MAX the top real estate franchise in its annual Top Global Franchises list, released in July.
Acknowledged as the most comprehensive ranking in the world, Franchise 500 named RE/MAX as number 11 overall and also recognized RE/MAX in its 2017 Top Fastest Growing Franchises rankings, the only real estate franchise that qualified and the fourth consecutive year RE/MAX has been included in the annual list of fast-growing brands.
“We are proud to be part of this incredible brand and network with more than 116,000 agents worldwide”, said Mr Davoren, “and we all play a key role in what we’ve built together throughout the world.”
