PLANO, Texas, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- European Wax Center, the leading personal care franchise brand that offers expert wax services from certified specialists recently ranked no. 53 in the 2021 US and Canada Fastest Growing Franchises List and no. 62 on the Worldwide Fastest Growing Franchises List, in Entrepreneur's list of the Fastest-Growing Franchises published in the March issue of Entrepreneur magazine.

"Nothing can stop the smartest franchises from growing—not even a pandemic!" says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur's editor-in-chief. "We've been impressed with how innovative franchises have pivoted and adapted this past year, and are happy to celebrate the ones who keep pushing forward and growing."

Franchises on this list are ranked based on the net total of units (both franchised and company-owned) added globally from July 2019 to July 2020, with ties broken based on percentage growth.

"We're honored to receive recognition as one of Entrepreneur's fastest-growing franchises, especially during such unprecedented times. We're proud that in 2020 we were able to open 52 new centers thanks to our dedication to ensuring top safety and sanitation is always provided to guests for a safe experience they can trust. We look forward to continuing to grow, provide safe experiences and open new doors this year," said David Berg, Chief Executive Officer of EWC.
