The US-based franchise company Petland is honoured to be listed once again among top-ranked franchises around the world. Entrepreneur magazine released its rankings of the top global franchisees, rating Petland #24, which puts it in the top 25 for two years in a row. Earlier this year, Petland ranked 168 overall in the Entrepreneur magazine's 39th Annual Franchise 500, a ranking of North American franchises.
"It is an incredible honour to be recognised by Entrepreneur magazine as a top franchise across the globe and ranked with the likes of McDonalds, RE/MAX, KFC and Subway," said Joe Watson, president and CEO of Petland, Inc.
International growth at Petland has been at a record high. Petland opened its first location in the Middle East in May. The store, located in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, features a complete line of pets and pet supplies and many other unique items for the welfare of animals. Petland has also opened new stores in the United States, South Africa, Mexico, Canada and Brazil over the last year, raising the total number of international stores to 132.
