Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (March 14, 2023) – Dream Vacations/CruiseOne® was named to Entrepreneur’s first-ever Franchise 500® Hall of Fame list, published in the March/April 2023 issue of Entrepreneur magazine, and on Entrepreneur.com. This prestigious list honors the elite franchise brands that have ranked in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking for 25 or more years consecutively. Dream Vacations/CruiseOne® earned its place in the Hall of Fame by ranking in every Franchise 500 for the last 26 years.
“To be a member of the inaugural Hall of Fame class is such an incredible recognition,” said Drew Daly, senior vice president and general manager of Dream Vacations/CruiseOne®. “This esteemed accolade speaks to not only the staying power of the brand, but the innovation and drive to improve. I want to dedicate this milestone to our talented network of franchise owners, associates, and headquarters staff.”
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, franchise 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 franchise 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.
