"Rug Décor fills a gap in the home furnishings market and by offering a huge selection of quality area rugs at great prices," said Mark Jameson, vice president of franchise development with Rug Décor. "Our dedication to perfecting our turnkey business model and raising the bar in specialty retailing will continue to play a great role as Rug Décor continues its growth."

Entrepreneur considers many factors in determining its rankings. Among the most important criteria are financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. Also considered are the number of years in business and length of time franchising, start-up costs, litigation, and percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria.

The company plans to have a strong placement in the ranking again in 2009 due to expansion plans calling for 40 new locations by the end of 2009.
