March 02, 2018 // // The Maids, a leading franchised residential cleaning service, has again been ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list, the best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. The Maids ranked 46 overall, and second in the Residential Cleaning category. Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry and recognizes franchises for outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

“We are honored and excited to once again receive this acknowledgment from Entrepreneur,” said Colin Bishop, president and CEO of The Maids International, franchisor of The Maids. “Being identified by Entrepreneur as a top franchise, regardless of industry, and remaining a leader in our category is a distinction we take considerable pride in.”

“The Franchise 500 is always evolving, as we continually seek to best understand and evaluate the franchise marketplace,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “We spent months gathering and analyzing data in order to produce this year’s list, and with over 1,000 franchises applying for the first time in 25 years, this may have been our most competitive ranking ever.”

The key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.
