September 03, 2009 // Franchising.com // Southbury, CT – The World Franchising Network has selected The Entrepreneur's Source, TES as one of the 'Top 100 Franchises' in the services sector. In addition to this honor, for 9 consecutive years, TES has selected by Entrepreneur Magazine for their 'Top Franchise' 500 list. TES is the market-leader in the franchise business coaching and consulting industry with expertise in self-employment options and franchising, and small business education and training.
"TES, and our other Business Coaching brands, are in-demand due to the many down-sized people who now want to take control for the financial destiny through business ownership," said Terry Powell, CEO and founder of FranchisEsource Brands International (FSBI), a multi-brand franchisor principally engaged in growing solid concepts into major international franchise brands. "Business Coaching also offers a great lifestyle for the business-savvy individual who would love the convenience of a home office and parlay their skills into a profitable business venture," he added.
One of FSBI's largest brands, Decor&You, also made the World's Franchising Network's "Top 100 Franchise" list as the market leader and second largest interior design franchise in the industry with over 200 units nationally.
The World Franchising Network develops the list based on a rigorous analysis of several factors, including historical performance, brand identification, franchisee satisfaction, training, on-going support, financial stability and other key variables.
Just recently TES was also honored by Entrepreneur Magazine for the second year in a row as one of the top home-based franchises for 2009.

In fact, the latest data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show that 4.12 million entrepreneurs are now working at home, most of which are in services industry.
