The Not-Quite-Complete List of Atlanta Franchisors

A great number of franchisors call Atlanta their home. So many leading franchised brands are here that Ben Lawrence, a professor at Georgia State University’s Robinson College of Business, believes Atlanta should be a global hub for franchising.

Here is our unofficial, non-quite-complete list of franchisors based in the Atlanta area. Nearly 100 franchised brands by our count. We surely missed a few or have some wrong information. Please send us corrections and updates!

Update November 9,  2018: How could I have forgotten Waffle House? Seven more franchisors added, including Citrus Solutions, which is just 1 franchise short of graduating to the 100+ category.
