LAS VEGAS, Dec. 18 // PRNewswire // -- Entrepreneur Magazine has ranked ActionCOACH as the #25 Top Home-Based Franchise for 2009.
This marks the sixth year in a row the company has been in the top 25 list of home-based businesses.
Entrepreneur's announcement of the 30th Annual Franchise 500 Award winners not only demonstrates ActionCOACH's industry strength, but its reputation as a home-based business in the franchise industry.
Many of those who join ActionCOACH say having a flexible home-based business that builds on their business and corporate experience is one of the factors that led them to business coaching.
"Unlike retail franchises, ActionCOACH truly is a Monday through Friday business opportunity," ActionCOACH Founder and CEO Brad Sugars said. "Business coaching is an attractive home-based business opportunity, especially for corporate executives tired of daily traffic jams and air travel delays."
For its rankings, Entrepreneur based its Franchise 500 awards on a number of factors that include financial strength, financial stability, growth rate and size of the franchise system.
ActionCOACH has been instrumental in the growth and development of the business coaching category since Brad Sugars started the business in 1993 from his home in Brisbane, Australia.
Over the past 15 years, the firm has grown into an internationally recognized and award-winning franchise with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries. Most recently, the company added executive coaching to its range of products and services with the aim to bring an entrepreneurial mindset and global reach to executives and teams in the corporate world.
The full list of ActionCOACH's rankings in Entrepreneur's 2009 rankings include: #103 in the Franchise 500; #1 in the Business Coaching category; #25 Top Home Based Franchise and #82 as America's Top Global Franchise.
