Rainbow International® Awards 47 New Franchises in 2012

Restoration and cleaning franchise celebrates rapid growth, Franchise 500® ranking.

(PRWEB) January 09, 2013 - Restoration franchise Rainbow International is proud to announce the addition of nine new franchises in the fourth quarter, concluding 2012 with a healthy growth of 47 new franchise units throughout the U.S. and Canada. Rainbow International is an industry leader in water, fire, and smoke damage restoration, with approximately 320 locations in North America.

Recognizing the franchise’s success, Entrepreneur magazine named Rainbow International to its Franchise 500® list again in 2013, ranking the company at #114 among the top global franchise brands.

Many home contractors in the construction, remodeling, and roofing industries are looking to restoration as an added revenue stream sheltered from the real-estate market’s fluctuations. Rainbow International received more than 450 franchisors submitted franchise applications from entrepreneurs in 2012. Recent franchise owners cite Rainbow International’s world-class training and support from IICRC-certified trainers, marketing support, and vendor rebates as key in their decision to open a Rainbow International franchise.

“Our resilient growth is a testament to the strength of our franchise model and the success of our franchisees,” said Rob White, president of Rainbow International. “We are always delighted to add to our growing service network with owners who share our drive for excellence and professionalism.”
