The magazine’s Franchise 500 List is Considered the Authority in the Franchise Industry.
i9 Sports made Entrepreneur magazine’s 2022 Franchise 500 list, announced Jan. 6. This is the fourth year in a row that the youth sports franchise has been part of the Franchise 500, and it’s our thirteenth appearance on the 500 list, which is considered the most comprehensive ranking in the franchise industry.
“We’re excited to be recognized as one of the leading franchises in the U.S. We saw tremendous growth in league enrollment and franchise openings last year, and we have plans in place to extend that growth,” says i9 Sports President Brian Sanders. “There is an enormous market for a unique offering like ours. Our momentum is strong as we begin 2022.”
Entrepreneur uses a 43-year-old ranking formula. “The editorial team researches and assesses several factors that go into the evaluation, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability,” the magazine’s editors wrote. “Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.”
How i9 Sports Stands Out
Our youth sports leagues are designed to be fun for kids and convenient for families, and those values set i9 Sports apart. We were the first youth sports franchise to open, and we have developed programs to teach the fundamentals of flag football, soccer, volleyball, basketball, baseball, and lacrosse.
i9 Sports is a great business opportunity that gives franchisees a sense of personal satisfaction while providing a valuable service to their communities.
