Screenmobile Soars To New Heights On Entrepreneur Magazine’s 40th Annual Franchise 500® List
Screening Franchise Ranked #254 in the Home Repairs Category
January 24, 2019 // Franchising.com // THOUSAND PALMS, Calif. - Screenmobile announced today that it has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500® list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Screenmobile has been rated number #254 on the Franchise 500 list under the “Home Repairs” category.
The prestigious award validates the progress the company has made and the past year’s accomplishments including reaching more than 100 franchisees nationwide. Screenmobile’s ranking this year shows tremendous growth from its previous ranking of #331 in 2018 and #404 in 2017.
“We are honored to receive this ranking,” said Scott Walker, president and CEO of Southern California-based Screenmobile. "We look forward to building upon this growth in 2019, as we form new relationships, expand into new markets, and offer our existing franchisees continued support.”
The key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
“As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500, it’s a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology.”
Customer satisfaction is generated from the convenience and professionalism of the business. In a single visit, the Screenmobile representative arrives in uniform, then measures, manufactures, installs and tests the screens on site. Afterwards, Screenmobile follows up with proactive communication to ensure the needs of the customer are met.
As franchisees, Screenmobile owners are provided a protected territory, marketing materials, tools and equipment, uniforms and a trailer. Another attractive aspect of owning a Screenmobile franchise is the corporate support system, which includes the brand’s training and guidance programs that empower the franchisee from day one. New franchisees are required to attend “Screenmobile University,” a two-week program to learn about business operations, goals and values. They then go through 13 weeks of ongoing video call training known as “The Fast Start Program.”
Screenmobile provides the perfect franchise opportunity for family-focused individuals or couples who are looking for the perfect work/life balance. Franchisees identify with the familial spirit that comes along with being part of the brand.
Entrepreneurially spirited individuals interested in owning a Screenmobile franchise should have the ability to invest between $83,000-164,000, which includes working capital and a typical franchise fee of $39,500. Plus, Screenmobile is a proud supporter of Veterans. Approved candidates and their spouses receive a $2,500 discount off of the initial franchise fee.
Over its 40 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Screenmobile’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
