Las Vegas, NV, --(PR.com)-- ActionCOACH, the number one business coaching firm in the world, was ranked #71 and awarded inclusion in AllBusiness.com's 2009 "AllBusiness AllStar Franchises" list.
Over the last six months the company's team of editors, led by Rieva Lesonsky and Maria Anton (who spent more than 20 years at Entrepreneur magazine), have researched, compiled, and analyzed more than 700 franchise systems to compile the AllBusiness AllStar Franchises list.
This is the first year for this list; yet it is regarded as one of the most transparent and interactive rankings of its kind. It helps would-be franchisees sort and surface information that's the most important to them.
The company believes this is also the only list that draws upon the in-depth financial analysis of its parent company, D&B (Dun and Bradstreet).
Due to the current realities of the economy, this ranking places particular emphasis on financial health. AllBusiness representatives believe that the winners all have a strong financial foundation to survive and prosper in these recessionary times.
"This only helps further validate the fact that while we do well when the economy is on an upswing, we tend to do even better during recessionary times," ActionCOACH Director of Franchise Sales & Marketing Jodie Shaw said. "In another ranking system that ranks franchises based on franchisee satisfaction, we have been rated as #17 – once again validating our robust financial foundation."
ActionCOACH was recently ranked by the Franchise Business Review (FBR) as #17 and included in FBR's Franchise 50 List. These accolades and rankings are significant for anyone looking at investing in a franchise system.
ActionCOACH prides itself in its proven and tested systems that can be used to improve any business in any industry – irrespective of the economy it is operating in. A typical Business Coach with the company has many years of past corporate and business ownership experience. Most recently, three Business Coaches from the company banked diamond level earnings – all in the middle of the current recession.
"Our franchisees are primarily white collar people who could not imagine flipping burgers for a livelihood," Shaw said. "They are looking for a professional services franchise so they can use their current business skills and experience in a company with proven business development systems. In that sense, ActionCOACH fits like a glove."
Business coaching is a growth industry and is the second fastest growing, next only to IT. ActionCOACH enjoys the largest share of this growing market.
ActionCOACH is the world's number one business coaching and executive coaching franchise, with more than 1,000 offices in 26 countries.
