January 18, 2008

Entrepreneur magazine has ranked Lenny's Franchisor LLC in two national franchise lists.

The appearances on the lists are the first for Lenny's Franchisor, franchisor of the Lenny's Sub Shops chain.

For the first time, the company placed 191 among franchises judged in the Franchise 500. Also, the company ranked 98th in the magazine's Fastest Growing Franchises list.

Since George Alvord, CEO of Lenny's Franchisor, and a group of investors took over Lenny's in 2004, the company has more than tripled its number of restaurants.

The once regional chain now has a national presence that includes restaurants open and in development in 21 states. The company has 153 restaurants open today. Hundreds more are scheduled to open in the next few years.

Lenny's Sub Shops is a Philadelphia-style sub shop chain based in Memphis.
