Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts is once again being recognized as one of the nation’s top franchises in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, according to a press release.
Jellystone Park’s ranking of #348 on the 2022 list is an improvement of 77 slots compared to 2021.
This marks the sixth consecutive year Jellystone Park has been ranked among Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. It is the fifth time the family camping and entertainment company has topped its category based on the franchise’s consistent unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.
“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory,” says Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”
This honor is the latest in a string of accolades for the Jellystone Park brand. In 2021, Entrepreneur also named it a Top Global Franchise and Franchise Business Review named Jellystone Park a Top Franchise, Top Franchise for Women, Top Recession-Proof Business and a member of its Culture100 list.
“This recognition is the direct result of our franchisees’ continued dedication and amazing work during an unprecedented time,” said Rob Schutter, president of Camp Jellystone, which franchises Jellystone Park. “Thousands of families stayed with us last year for the first time ever and have since become fans of Jellystone Park, which sets the stage for even more growth in 2022 and beyond.”
