Cleveland, OH --(PR.com)-- RedHotFranchises.com, a leading franchise and business opportunity website resource for prospective entrepreneurs seeking information about the best franchises and business opportunities available, recently announced the nomination and confirmation of Pro Energy Consultants as No. 14 on its 2010 Hot 100 Franchise List. More than 3,000 franchises were considered for this list.
Wrote RedHotFranchises.com Founder & CEO Chris Delacey, the reason for Pro Energy's high ranking is because the company "is committed to position their affiliates to take advantage of one of the most significant economic trends of today and tomorrow."
In less than 18 months since awarding its first franchise, Pro Energy Consultants — the only national energy auditing company — has grown to more than 50 franchises nationwide with a presence in more than half the states. The company's been featured in several news outlets, including CBS' "The Early Show," Fox's "Good Day New York" and Better Homes and Gardens.
"We knew from day one a business opportunity that helps people save energy, save money and save the environment made for the ideal green franchise," said Pro Energy Consultants Managing Partner Derek Sola. "We appreciate RedHotFranchises.com's list confirming this."
This year, this list contains franchises and business opportunities from dozens of industry categories. The RedHotFranchises.com board members who determine the ranking have more than 50 years of combined franchise experience and include franchisors, franchisees, franchise suppliers and other leading franchise experts. The criteria for making this list is based on a variety of factors, including management, franchisee satisfaction, franchise support, growth rate, financial stability, and profitability.
"Only those franchises and business opportunities that exhibit superlative performance and have proven that their business models stand out from the crowd of more than 3,000 different franchises are considered for the Hot 100 Franchise List," added Delacey.
Pro Energy Consultants' proven system for conducting energy audits is backed by more than 15 years experience and more than 11,000 energy audits. The company's mission is to provide customized, comprehensive and diagnostic energy audits designed to maximize the comfort and energy efficiency of homes and "light" commercial buildings while reducing energy costs. This mission not only sets the worldwide standard for energy audits but also established Pro Energy as the world's leading expert on the subject. In October 2008 Pro Energy began awarding franchises — making it the first national franchise in energy auditing. Being the ideal "green franchise" opportunity, it has quickly grown to more than 50 franchises nationwide. The company is headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio.
