January 07, 2014 // Franchising.com // Cincinnati, Ohio - Window Genie, a home services franchise, has been named as one of the top 500 and fastest growing franchises in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2014 Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. The list will be published in Entrepreneur’s February 2014 issue, with Window Genie ranked No.195 overall, maintaining their position from last year, and ranked No. 72 on the fastest growing franchises list.
"We are delighted to be included in Entrepreneur’s overall rankings and list of fastest growing franchises," said Rik Nonelle, founder and CEO of Window Genie. "This honor reflects our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality cleaning services for our residential and commercial clients, as well as the excellent business opportunities we offer to our family of franchisees and any prospective business owners."
Over its 35 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for entrepreneurs. The rankings for all 500 companies are determined using an exclusive formula that takes into account objective and quantifiable factors. An independent CPA analyzes all financial data. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. All franchises are given a cumulative score, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
"The ranked franchises are the ones whose business models are working best—and are a major force contributing to the franchise upswing. Their ability to successfully satisfy customers, continually add units, create jobs and grow overall keeps them ahead of the rest and worthy of distinction," said Amy Cosper, vice president and editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur.
The fastest-growing rankings are based on the number of new franchise units added in the United States and Canada from July 2012 to July 2013, as verified by Entrepreneur magazine.
"The Franchise 500® is a valuable resource for anyone looking to pursue a business venture and wants to get a scope of which companies and industries are doing well in today’s economy," said Amy Cosper, vice president and editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur.
