CMIT Solutions is ranked in Entrepreneur Magazine's 2015 Franchise 500® list, considered the "best and most comprehensive franchise ranking" in the industry. CMIT Solutions was rated in the top half of Entrepreneur's list, ranking it in the top 5 percent of all North American franchise systems.
The prestigious award validates the progress the company has made in 2014 and is a testament to the company's dedication to providing reliable, affordable IT services to the United States in more than 150 locations.

To be eligible for the®, a franchisor must have a minimum of 10 units, with at least one in the United States. All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same objective criteria, including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system, number of years a company has been in business, length of time it has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations, and whether the company provides financing. These objective factors are plugged into the magazine's exclusive Franchise 500® formula, with each eligible company receiving a cumulative score. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500®.
CMIT Solutions' services help companies keep their strategic IT goals in focus by ensuring their computer systems are running, their data is protected, their network is secure, and, most importantly, their employees are productive. As a result, business owners increase the productivity of their employees, eliminating the frustrations that go along with today's modern technology issues.
CMIT Solutions' franchise offices are independently owned and operated. Unlike most local IT consultants, CMIT Solutions has established cost-saving relationships with well-known technology partners, including Dell, Microsoft, and Intuit.

Entrepreneurially spirited individuals interested in owning a CMIT Solutions franchise need $65,000 to $80,000 in working capital, plus $49,950 for the franchise fee. CMIT franchisees are given a sizable territory based on ZIP codes and can expect to have 2,000 to 3,000 prime target businesses in their protected territory. Additionally, CMIT Solutions' area developer opportunities provide strong career paths.
