Tamarac, FL. – (April 18, 2019) – PuroClean, a leading national restoration and remediation franchise, recently received top awards from renowned franchise organizations, including Franchise Business Review, Franchise Times, Entrepreneur magazine and Franchise Direct. Each accolade is a testament to the company’s ongoing growth and achievements in franchise owner satisfaction, following a change in ownership just four years ago.
“In 2015, Vice Chairman Frank Torre and I came on board with ambitious goals to drive PuroClean’s growth in North America, while elevating our brand through new opportunities,” said Mark Davis, Chairman and CEO at PuroClean. “We believe wholeheartedly in servant leadership, working to build a team that is dedicated to a collective mission, and we are proud to receive honors like these, which support our long-term vision for the company.”
Recent honors include Franchise Business Review’s (FBR) ranking of PuroClean at number 22 in the Top 50: Large category for companies with 130-300 units in their annual Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. To determine winners for this award, FBR surveyed franchise owners on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including executive leadership, training and support, systems and operations, core values, franchisee community, financial opportunity, general satisfaction, and a self-evaluation. Over 1,110 franchise brands were surveyed, representing thousands of franchise owners.
FBR also identified PuroClean as a Top Low-Cost Franchise for 2019, one of only 97 franchises to achieve the highly sought-after award for high franchisee satisfaction and an investment of under $100,000 at the time PuroClean franchisees participated in the survey. Thousands of franchisees representing over 150 low-cost brands participated in FBR’s franchisee satisfaction survey through September 2017 and February 2019, answering questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
Echoing PuroClean’s commitment to onboarding new franchises owners at great value for even greater success, Entrepreneur magazine ranked PuroClean at number 35 on its list of Top Low- Cost Franchises for 2019. Based on the franchise’s scores in the publication’s esteemed Entrepreneur Franchise 500®, the list recognizes franchises that enable entrepreneurs to start a business for less than $150,000.
In addition to the nod from FBR, Franchise Times has named PuroClean a 2019 best buy in their third annual, consumer-focused Zor Awards program, which is designed to recognize brands in 10 of the industry’s most exciting and accessible categories. The ranking was based on the examination of management teams, expansion in the United States, profitability, financial performance, product or service offerings, unit openings and closings, recent litigation, and financial backing of each brand.
