Image360 Franchise Ranked Third in Signs Section of Business Services Category
January 15, 2020 // Franchising.com // PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Image360 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. Ranked third in the “Signs” section of the “Business Services” category, Image360 also achieved a #187 ranking overall.
The recognition received by Image360 highlights the expansion made by the company in 2019, with 311 total locations in communities across the United States.
“It’s a true endorsement of our Image360 franchise system to be recognized by Entrepreneur with this ranking,” said Burke Cueny, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for the Sign & Graphics Division of Alliance Franchise Brands. "As we look ahead to 2020, we’re eager to build upon this moment in new markets, creating new relationships and further strengthening our franchise system in order to reach even greater heights in a new year.”
?The key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
“The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin’ that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs - because in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive.”
Image360 provides high quality professional graphic solutions to regional businesses and organizations. From the simplest projects to the most complex, trained graphics specialists work closely with clients to maximize the creativity and visual impact of environmental graphics, mobile graphics, way-finding solutions and trade show displays and retail signage.
