July 21, 2014 // Franchising.com // Rockledge, Fla. – Pirtek, an industry leader in fluid power system hose repair, celebrated a second quarter of steady growth and revenue increases, which has set the positive momentum for the remaining half of 2014.
From April through July, U.S. Pirtek center sales experienced a 25% revenue increase compared to the second quarter of 2013. So far this year, the company has added three franchise locations: Houston, TX; Tucson, AZ and St. Louis, MO. As a result, Pirtek now has 48 shops across the country.
As a reflection of the strong momentum that Pirtek has built over the past year, the industry leader will be celebrating the opening of its 50th unit in Baltimore, MD in October. The franchise is also looking forward to openings in Birmingham, AL; San Antonio, TX, Grapevine, TX and Detroit, MI.

As a reflection of the valuable business opportunity it offers to savvy entrepreneurs, the brand was ranked in the Top 500 Franchises for 2014 in Entrepreneur.
