The magazine’s annual rankings are based on outstanding performance in areas such as unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

Pearle Vision was ranked No. 1 for the second consecutive year in the Eye Care category, which was created last year. Pearle Vision is ranked No. 32 overall, placing the brand in the Top 6% of all franchises on the list.

This is the 13th consecutive year that Pearle Vision has been ranked among the Franchise 500 and the 37th time in the 42 years that the annual list has been published. Entrepreneur receives more than 1,100 applications for ranking, making the list an invaluable tool for potential franchisees.

Pearle Vision’s top ranking comes on the heels of a year in which the brand remained steadfastly focused on growth even as it coped with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. Pearle Vision opened 16 new EyeCare Centers and signed several area development agreements. Additionally, eight independent optometry practices were converted to Pearle Vision franchise locations through the brand’s Ignite program, with four more conversions in process and expected to be completed in early 2021. Ignite allows independent practice owners to retain control of their businesses while strengthening their businesses with infrastructure improvements from Pearle Vision.
