To be named as one of the top 28 new franchises over the past 5 years is really rewarding. If you consider the sheer number of new franchise concepts that have been introduced, this really says a lot about the company, our systems, our existing franchisees and the team we have assembled", said Rick Del Sontro, President of Zippy Shell USA".
