Feeling hungry? Some of the oldest, largest and most successful franchises around are food businesses. In fact, more than a quarter of the companies that ranked in Entrepreneur’s 2015 Franchise 500® are quick-service, full-service or retail food franchises. And you’ll find every one of them on the following pages.

One appeal of food franchising is that creative franchisees can contribute to a company’s success. Can you imagine McDonald’s without the Big Mac, Egg McMuffin or Filet-O-Fish? What about Dairy Queen without the Blizzard? If not for inventive franchisees—and franchisors open to new ideas—these iconic menu items wouldn’t exist. So throughout this listing, we’ve highlighted a few of the many offerings franchisees have helped create. Who knows—one just might become the next Big Mac.

Keep in mind as you read our listing that it is not intended as an endorsement of any particular franchise but simply as a starting point for your own research. Before investing in any opportunity, always review the company’s legal documents, consult with an attorney and an accountant and talk to other franchisees to find out if the franchise is right for you.
