Fastest growing home care franchise continues
Each year, business publication Entrepreneur researches thousands of franchisors and painstakingly ranks the top 500 franchise brands. The annual list is known as the most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. Cracking the top 500 is a significant achievement on its own when you think of the vast size of the franchise industry in North America. In 2017, it was estimated that there were about 3800 franchise brands in the United States.
Over the past five years, Nurse Next Door has jumped rankings. Since 2014, we’ve climbed over 250 spots. This year, we have made the list again celebrating a top 50 ranking. This is a significant achievement considering we’re only entering our fifth year of franchising in the U.S. and are up against competitors that have been in the industry decades longer. Some other names in the top 50? McDonalds, 7-11, and Hilton Hotels and Resorts. We’re proud to be in such lofty company.
Top 50 is an exciting achievement but I still remember a similar level of excitement four years ago when we cracked the top 500 at number 348. Now to tell you the truth, ranking in the top 50 hasn’t been easy. It’s taken a tremendous amount of work from some really talented people, including a network of 200+ franchise locations all passionate about Making Lives Better. But today we can celebrate a pretty significant milestone.
What makes this award so meaningful is what goes into determining the rankings. Entrepreneur looks at everything from the costs and fees involved, the size and growth trajectories, the support systems offered and the overall brand strength for each franchise system. These criteria, along with the financial strength and stability, are what land industry leading franchisors on the prestigious list.
