WACO, Texas (PRWEB) December 19, 2014 - Since 2012, all seven of The Dwyer Group brands have consistently ranked on Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500. "We are pleased that all of our brands have been ranked once again," said Mike Bidwell, CEO of The Dwyer Group. "This continued success is evidence of our dedication to franchising, our franchisees, and their customers."
Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 is an annual ranking of the best franchises based on financial and statistical data listed in surveys completed by franchisors across the nation. All franchises are judged based on identical criteria regardless of size.
The list honors franchisors that offer the best opportunities for success based on criteria such as financial strength, stability, growth rate and size of the system.
Entrepreneur Magazine has been publishing the Franchise 500 for 36 years.
The Dwyer Group brands are Aire Serv, Rainbow International, Mr. Rooter Plumbing, The Grounds Guys, Mr. Appliance, Mr. Electric and Glass Doctor.
Aire Serv was ranked as number 243 on the list. "We are truly excited to be ranked yet again as one of the top franchising opportunities by Entrepreneur Magazine," said Doyle James, President of Aire Serv.

"Rainbow International exists to improve lives; not just for our customers, but also for the independent businessmen and women who own and operate our local franchises. Improving lives is at the heart of every business decision we make."
Mr. Rooter Plumbing was ranked at 421 on the list. "It is an honor to be ranked once again as a top franchise opportunity," said Mary Kennedy Thompson, President of Mr. Rooter and Executive Vice President of The Dwyer Group. "Without the strength our franchisees provide to our network and the incredible team here at our home office, we would not be the franchisor that we are today."
