February 04, 2015 // Franchising.com // Window Genie was recently ranked #196 on Entrepreneur's 2015 Franchise 500 list. Window Genie has been listed among the nation's top 500 franchises for five years in a row.
Window Genie was ranked 190, 195 and 196 in the last three years respectively. Founder and CEO Rik Nonelle said of the accomplishment, "We're extremely proud to make Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 list year after year. We've been ranked in the top 200 for three years now. As a system we've experienced consistent growth and improvement together, and our consistent rankings reflect that team effort."
Entrepreneur's annual Franchise 500 list is compiled every year with an objective process described on entrepreneur.com as, "The process began in July 2014, when we asked franchisors to participate in our survey. Each submission was vetted before being entered for data analysis; 927 companies made the first cut. Of those, the top 500 made the Franchise 500® ranking, based on financial and statistical data from July 2012 through July 2014."
Entrepreneur also notes that, "All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. We also consider the number of years a company has been in business and the length of time it’s been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing. Financial data is analyzed by an independent CPA."
