Connecticut has new No. 1 on ‘Franchise 500’
Edible Arrangements displaced Milford-based Subway as the top franchisor based in Connecticut, as ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s annual Franchise 500.
McDonald’s, 7-Eleven and Dunkin’ Donuts took the top three spots, with McDonald’s having spent the past few years overhauling its southwestern Connecticut restaurants. Hamden-based Edible Arrangements ranked 53rd, down 11 rungs from 2017, with Subway submarining to 105th from 35th a year ago and at the top of the list in prior years.
Canton, Mass.-based Dunkin’ Donuts was the top-growing franchisor last year, with Entrepreneur naming Mosquito Joe the top newcomer.
