ActionCOACH Named #50 in List of Top Global Franchises by Franchise Direct

World’s Leading Business Coaching Company Continues to Expand to New Markets

May 11, 2012 // // Las Vegas- ActionCOACH has been named to Franchise Direct’s list of Top 100 Global Franchises, ranking number 50 on list, the fourth straight year ActionCOACH has made the list and its highest ranking over that time, up from 77 in 2011.

Each year, Franchise Direct ranks the top internationally-operating franchise companies from around the globe, not just ones based in the United States. This literally world-class list details the franchises that are prospering with operations in at least two countries.

“It’s an honor every year we are named to this list, because this ranking highlights the strength of our systems and also shows the importance of Business Coaching as an industry,” ActionCOACH USA and Canada CEO Jodie Shaw said.

Subway, McDonalds and KFC hold the top three spots on this year’s list of easily recognizable world-wide franchises.

The Top 100 Global Franchises have been selected from a candidate pool of hundreds of franchises that have invested time and resources in international expansion strategies. The most recent and accurate data possible on these franchise systems was gathered by way of information self-reported by companies, Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings, and published industry sources.

The data was then entered into a formula based upon an objective methodology that incorporates a host of criteria which includes, but is not limited to: System size, based on number of units, sales revenue for the company, number of years in franchising, stability and growth, support for prospective and current franchisees, environmental policies and corporate citizenship.

“Our footprint on the world of business will continue to grow as people continue to realize the importance of coaching. We have just put an ActionCOACH Business Coach in our 40th country, Peru, and with initiatives like the Business Excellence Forum and Awards, which focuses on teaching and celebrating business owners, I have no doubt we will continue to stay on this list and keep moving up in rank,” Shaw said.

Brad Sugars founded ActionCOACH in 1993. By franchising the company in 1997, Sugars helped popularize the industry of business coaching . ActionCOACH specializes in coaching small to medium size business as well as executive teams and group coaching.
