Jan-Pro selected as Top 100 Global Franchise by Franchise Direct

Franchise Direct just announced its 2012 Top 100 Global Franchise list. Jan-Pro made the list at No. 60!

The Top 100 ranking is based on extensive internal research by Franchise Direct. The full ranking and accompanying report with methodology can be viewed here.

Here’s what Franchise Direct had to say today:

Franchise Direct has ranked the best franchises from around the globe. This definitive and exclusive list details the franchises which are performing best on an international level. These findings were reached using an objective, detailed methodology that considered a host of factors including financial performance and corporate citizenship.

The Top 100 Global Franchises have been selected from thousands of franchises that have invested in international expansion strategies and have been ranked using an objective and measurable criteria. This criterion includes:

  • System size based on numbers of units
  • Sales revenue for the system
  • Stability and growth
  • Number of years in operation
  • Market expansion

The ranking is also based on the implementation of:

  • Best practice in the areas of franchisee support and training
  • Environmental policy
  • Social responsibility

Given the present economy, consideration was also given to the availability of financing to franchisees, and whether it was direct financing, SBA approved or third party financing. The information was gathered from Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs), email surveys, telephone interviews and published industry sources.

Each franchise which appears in The Top 100 Global Franchises has excelled at international expansion, investing time and resources to acquire linguistic capabilities while combining them with cultural sensitivities. Due to globalization and the dismantling of trade barriers, franchises have achieved better economies of scale which allow them to grow and develop in foreign markets.

In this way The Top 100 Global Franchises are role models for early stage franchises and provide a blueprint for ‘early-stage’ franchises that are looking further to expand beyond domestic borders. The franchises in the Top 100 all share a defined identity, a clear business plan, a commitment to training and support, an ability to innovate and sensitivity to environmental issues.

Franchise Direct has designed a special badge for display on Jan-Pro franchisee websites to let our customers know about the accomplishment. The badge is located here for download.

Congratulations to everyone!

Please use the badge and spread the good news – post to your favorite social network to get the word out and keep Jan-Pro’s reputation at the high level it deserves.
