September 21, 2017 // Franchising.com // SPARTANBURG, SC – milliCare Floor & Textile Care was recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Global Franchises list, which recognizes the top 200 franchisors that are seeking franchisees outside of the U.S. milliCare was ranked No. 136 on the list.
Being recognized by Entrepreneur as one of the Top Global Franchises further validates the recent significant investment by parent company, Milliken, in infrastructure and human resources. With no organized global competitors, milliCare is poised to quickly grow its franchisee network both domestically and internationally.
"Since milliCare's parent company, Milliken, has such a global presence, our international franchisees are profiting from brand awareness not normally found when bringing an American concept to market overseas,” said Bill Helton, milliCare director of franchise development.
Alex Jacovides, owner of milliCare Australia, agrees. “For milliCare Australia, it is extremely important that milliCare Floor and Textile Care has had a sound track record globally. milliCare has established successful businesses worldwide, utilising sustainable patented, research, developed, certified and independently assessed products, methods and systems.”
