PostalAnnex Named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® Hall of Fame

(SAN DIEGO, May 4, 2023) Annex Brands, Inc. is pleased to announce that PostalAnnex was named to Entrepreneur’s first-ever Franchise 500® Hall of Fame list. This prestigious list honors the elite franchise brands that have ranked in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® ranking for 25 or more years consecutively. PostalAnnex earned its place in the Hall of Fame by ranking in every Franchise 500® for the last 35 years.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for franchise excellence, especially as we continue to grow the PostalAnnex brand to provide more service to more people in more places,” said Annex Brands’ Chief Executive Officer, Patrick Edd.

Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® has been evaluating and ranking franchise opportunities for 44 years. The company’s proprietary ranking formula analyzes brands based on more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. The ranking grows more competitive each year—1,321 companies applied for a chance at a spot in the top 500 in 2023—and only 49 brands have managed to rank every year for the last 25 years or more, and thus earn a spot in the 2023 Hall of Fame.

“We’re honoring these A-list brands who have shown through and through their commitment to growth, to their franchisees, and to their communities,” said Entrepreneur Senior Vice President of Franchising Liane Caruso. “Ranking in the Franchise 500® is highly competitive, and achieving that distinction year after year is quite an accomplishment. We’re thrilled to recognize so many brands who have thrived over the years!”
