Screenmobile Ranked #1 in “Home Repairs” Category on Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500® List
Leading Home Services Franchise Leads its Category; Ranked #162 Overall on Prestigious List
January 15, 2020 // 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. Ranked #1 in the “Home Repairs” category in the “Maintenance” section, Screenmobile achieved a #162 rating overall, jumping 92 spots over its ranking last year.
The recognition received by Screenmobile highlights the expansion made by the company in 2019. An addition of more than 17 units last year brings the brand’s total number to 127 units in communities across the United States.
“We are thrilled to be named to this prestigious list among the best-of-the-best in franchising and to be ranked the leader in our category is an incredible honor,” said Scott Walker, president and CEO of Southern California-based Screenmobile. “Being named to this ranking is a testament to our growth and momentum over the past year. We’re excited to build off this energy in the months ahead.”
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.”
Screenmobile, a veteran franchise brand, has transformed the screening industry by bringing quality, stylish screens and outdoor living concepts at affordable prices to home improvement projects across the country. The brand’s unmatched commitment to customer satisfaction and convenience is just one way the company makes home improvement projects a breeze.

Over the years, Screenmobile has gained a loyal customer base. The brand stands apart from other screening companies due to its low overhead, quick ramp-up time and familial spirit.
