Combo Kitchen, the world’s leading and largest ghost kitchen franchise, has received the coveted honor of being named to Entrepreneur’s 2022 Franchise 500 list in its first year of business. Remarkably, Combo Kitchen was also named #1 in the Ghost Kitchen category. The recognition coincides with a significant company milestone, as Combo Kitchen also commemorates its expansion to more than 150 franchises nationwide in just its first 12 months of operation.
The highly competitive Franchise 50 ranking is the “world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking.” The list recognizes exemplary franchises for outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power. Over its 43 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees.
Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer says, “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
In reaction to the news, Kasmai said, “Combo Kitchen’s recognition on the Franchise 500® ranking and number-one position in the Ghost Kitchen category is an incredible achievement for any franchise concept within the first year of operation.” He continues, “since last year, when we submitted our ranking data, we are seeing continued exponential growth and look forward to raising the bar even higher in 2022.”
Combo Kitchen’s ranking data was submitted in August 2021, when the company included approximately 50 locations. As of Jan. 2022, Combo Kitchen brands are confirmed in upwards of 150 locations nationwide — more than three times the original submission in less than six months.
