Entrepreneur Names N2 Publishing #5 Fastest-Growing Franchise for 2019
N2 Publishing rises in rank, recognized for culture as well as growth
March 14, 2019 // Franchising.com // WILMINGTON, NC - N2 Publishing recently ranked #5 on the Fast-Growing Franchises for 2019 list by Entrepreneur. With a three-year growth rate of 220%, it’s easy to see why N2 has moved up on the list of 150 franchisors after placing 18th last year. According to company leaders, it’s all thanks to their carefully curated culture and the tremendously talented team that lives out that culture every day.
The national company, known best for its nearly 1,000 neighborhood publications, will celebrate 15 years in business this June, but only became a franchise operator in late 2016. In addition to an award-winning culture, leaders also attribute N2’s quick growth to their turnkey, “no frills” business model. With waived initial franchise fees and minimal startup costs, home-based offices, and no industry experience necessary, their franchise opportunity means prospective owners need little more than enthusiasm for the role and a willingness to learn the ropes through N2-provided training. But CEO Duane Hixon is quick to add one more requirement to the list: franchisees who fit the culture.
“We seek people who take responsibility for their actions, want to be better tomorrow than they are today, and remain humble no matter what success they may find,” said Hixon. “As we continue to grow, we are actively seeking more of these individuals to join our team. There’s a ton of opportunity for the right people to push us even further. And their success is our success.”
N2’s achievements have been recognized by more than just Entrepreneur. The company’s consistent growth rate has landed N2 Publishing on the Inc. 5000 list for eight consecutive years, and its culture has been recognized by Entrepreneur, Inc.,Fortune, and many others.
