Every year, HFC’s franchise brands are recognized as leaders in their respective home services categories within the home improvement industry by independent companies that monitor and “watchdog” the world of business and franchising. Entrepreneur, Franchise Business ReviewTM, Franchise Times®, Canadian Franchise Association®, VetFran, Military Times, and Inc. 5000 all highlight those franchise opportunities they deem especially noteworthy.
One of the most prestigious is Entrepreneur Magazine, focused on entrepreneurship, small business management and business since 1977. This is the 40th Franchise 500 list, annual evaluation, and comparison of the top-ranking franchises, based on fundamental factors important to prospective franchise owners to help them to make informed decisions before signing on the dotted line.
Entrepreneur bases the rankings on what they term the “Five Pillars of the Franchise 500.”
- Costs and fees
- Financial strength and stability
- Size and growth rate
- Support and training
- Brand strength
More than 1,000 companies applied to Entrepreneur for ranking in 2019, and over half never made the grade. Being in the Franchise 500 is indicative of a franchise that continues to evolve, going strong year after year, keeping pace with the latest trends and consumer demands so the businesses stay relevant.
Business ownership is power
