In its 34th Annual Franchise 500 Rankings, Entrepreneur's 2013 list is filled with high-ranking restaurant brands, proving that the industry is certainly not plateauing despite the economy. Overall, Subway comes in at No. 2, which also took the #11 spot on the Restaurant Social Media Index's Overall Top 250 Brands in Q3 2012. Denny's came in at No. 8 and McDonald's at No. 9 on the Franchise Rankings list. The brands placed at #48 and #7, respectively, on RSMI's Top 250. Pizza Hut (RSMI: #13), Jimmy John's (RSMI: #6), Dunkin' Donuts (RSMI: #27), Hardee's (RSMI: #90), and KFC (RSMI: #20) also all rounded out the Top 20 on Entreprenuer's 2013 list.
