What Does HobbyTown and a Hollywood Star Have in Common?

Do you know who the winningest actor in all of Hollywood is? If you guessed Jack Nicholson or Meryl Streep, close but no cigar. The all-time champ is Katherine Hepburn, with four Academy Awards and 12 nominations. Some would say just making the list is an honor. We at HobbyTown couldn’t agree more.

Every year for the last 20 years, HobbyTown has achieved the equivalent of an Academy Award in the franchise industry—the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list. That is an accomplishment few companies can match.

How does a company make the list? Franchises are ranked on key factors like size and growth, financial strength, brand strength, costs and fees, and more. This year, more than 1,000 companies applied by submitting their Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), a legal document that outlines every aspect of the franchise business and is presented to potential franchise buyers—and to the folks at Entrepreneur magazine.

“We are honored to be selected as the #1 hobby retailer again this year,” said Mark Moore, HobbyTown Franchise Sales Director.

HobbyTown is proud to be recognized as a leader in the hobby industry. With stores in 41 states, HobbyTown is a retailer of choice for brand fans who love coming into our stores for remote-controlled (RC) vehicles, toys, games, models, and more. Their loyalty is helping drive sales, with HobbyTown Franchise Owners, on average, having annual sales of $892, 908.*

So let’s celebrate all the hard work, smart thinking, and brand passion that went into making HobbyTown a winner yet again. If you’d like to win big by becoming a HobbyTown Franchise Owner, click the LEARN MORE button today!
