Zippy Shell USA Named to Franchise Times Top 500 Franchise Systems List

October 27, 2014 // Franchising.com // Washington, D.C. – Zippy Shell USA, LLC. is excited to announce the company’s inclusion on the 2014 Franchise Times Top 500 Franchises Systems list. The list, also referred to as the "500 Big Brands" list, is published annually incorporating the largest franchise systems across the world. Coming in at #485, Zippy Shell® joins the ranks of some of the largest companies in the world after just four years of operation.

The Franchise Times Top 500 is an annual ranking of the top 500 franchise systems in the U.S. by Global system wide sales, based on the previous year’s performance. Franchise Times compiles the companies by reviewing their voluntary reports and publicly available data, including the most recent franchise disclosure document and Securities and Exchange Commission filings. In order to be considered, a company must be a legal United States based franchise that owns at least 15 percent of the company’s total units.

The companies are ranked based on system wide sales, which are defined as the total sales for both franchise and company units. The sales figures only represent sales to customers and omit corporate sales to franchisees, royalty revenue, and franchise fees. Companies that have the same system wide sales are ranked based on total number of units.

"I was really surprised by our inclusion on this list", said Rick Del Sontro, CEO of Zippy Shell USA. "I had no idea that in such a short period of time we could make the top 500 franchise companies. When you think about all the franchise concepts out there, this is a very prestigious list".

So far in 2014, the rapid growth of the Zippy Shell® Brand has earned the No. 368 rank in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 500 franchises and was ranked No. 28 on Entrepreneur’s Top New Franchise list. The company also was a recipient of the Franchise Business Review Franchise Satisfaction Award. Zippy Shell is expecting to close out the year with the addition of 22 total new franchise locations for 2014, marking the largest year of growth yet.

Based out of Washington, D.C., Zippy Shell is made up of 48 corporately and franchise owned and operated locations across the United States.
