August 27, 2009 // Franchising.com // CINCINNATI, OH - Fresh Coat, one of the painting industry's fastest growing interior painting franchises, has staked its claim as the best of the best, claiming its spot on the acclaimed 2009 edition of Bond's Top 100 Franchises.
The Bond's Top 100 Franchises accolade is based on a variety of performance indicators including brand identification, market dynamics, franchisee satisfaction, on-going support, financial stability, and others. Currently, there are more than 3,000 active franchise systems throughout North America eligible to compete for the Bond's rankings.
While many other franchise systems are struggling due to current economic conditions, Fresh Coat continues to paint its way to success, and experienced a record-breaking 27.1 percent increase in total system revenue last year.
"The Bond's Top 100 ranking is an affirmation of the growth and excitement that is charging throughout our franchise system," said Fresh Coat President Ralph Martin. "Fresh Coat has prospered where others have not by a simple strategy of putting our customers and franchise owners first at all times, and offering professionalism, dependability, and affordability that was not always synonymous with the painting industry."
As the only professional interior painting franchise of its kind, Fresh Coat is on a mission to provide homeowners with experienced, reliable, professional painters, impeccable service and a stress-free home improvement experience. Unlike most independent painters, Fresh Coat accepts credit cards, has a 24/7 live Call Center for customers for quotes and scheduling, and includes the cost of paint in each quote which offers a guaranteed price (no hidden charges) and a firm paint date.
With approximately 75 Fresh Coat locations in operation throughout North America, Fresh Coat's Bond's Top 100 Franchises ranking will soon be highlighted on www.100TopFranchises.com, as well as in the 2009 Bond's Top 100 Franchises publication.
