Opening a restaurant has always been challenging, and the economic conditions of the past few years have only made it even more difficult. Still, the on our Top Food Franchises list helped hundreds of entrepreneurs accomplish the task in 2010. And part of the secret to success for many of them is something your mother always said you needed: a good breakfast.
For these food franchises, breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. According to a 2010 report by the NPD Group, breakfast made up almost 60 percent of the traffic growth over the past five years. So it's no surprise that many franchisors who previously focused on lunch and dinner have set their sights on serving the nation's early birds as well.
We also highlight a few of the breakfast menu innovations now available at some of our top food franchises.
Franchises in this list are displayed in order of their Franchise 500® rankings within their respective categories. Keep in mind that these rankings are not an endorsement or recommendation of any particular company--they're just a jumping-off point. The only way to determine whether a franchise opportunity is right for you is to conduct your own thorough research, including reading the company's documents, consulting with accountants and attorneys and talking to existing franchisees.
