DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 9, 2013 // PRNewswire // - Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System®, a leading franchisor of commercial cleaning businesses, has been named a Franchise Times Top 200 company for the 14th time since 1999.
Unlike many cleaning businesses strictly focused on cleaning for appearance, Coverall's® Program is designed to help improve the cleanliness, health and wellness of facilities ranging from offices to healthcare facilities.
"While this is the 14th time Coverall has been recognized as a Top 200 Franchise, which is a testament to the Coverall brand's longevity, it's not something we take for granted," said President and CEO, Rick Ascolese. "We know it's the hard work and dedication of our more than 9,000 Franchised Business Owners and the local support and training available through our dedicated regional Support Centers that continue to make it a reality."
Each year, Franchise Times recognizes the largest franchise systems in the U.S. According to the publication, the 10 largest franchise systems accounted for 45.2 percent of total sales at the time of its first Top 200 ranking. That percentage has increased ever since, and now, the 10 largest franchisors now account for more than half of the 200 franchises' overall revenue, 50.2 percent.
In addition to the Franchise Times recognition, Coverall has received numerous rankings throughout 2013, including USA Today-Franchising Today Top 50 Franchises for Veterans, Bond's Top 100 Franchises and Entrepreneur Magazine's 34th Annual Franchise 500.
Founded in 1985, Coverall offers motivated entrepreneurs the opportunity to independently own and operate franchised commercial cleaning businesses using the Coverall® brand and System. In 2008, the company launched its Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System® Program with an emphasis on helping to improve the cleanliness, health and wellness of facilities. This unique Program combines environmentally friendly and innovative cleaning technologies and tools, hospital-grade disinfectants, professional training programs, customer support and communication, and a passion for healthy cleaning to do one thing: remove the maximum amount of dirt and germs as efficiently as possible. Today, the Coverall® Program, implemented by independently owned and operated franchised businesses, is the first choice in cleaning for offices, medical offices and healthcare facilities, ambulatory surgery centers, schools, daycares, retail businesses, restaurants, manufacturing plants, auto dealerships, religious centers, fitness centers and other businesses.
