Restoration 1®, one of the fastest-growing and most-trusted restoration franchises in North America, was recently ranked number 167 in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500, making the list for the eighth consecutive year.

Over its 41 years in existence, the Franchise 500 has become a competitive measure for franchisors as well as a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Restoration 1’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.

“It’s an honor to be named once again in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list,” said Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1. “Our team works endlessly to position Restoration 1 as a leader in our industry and a leader in franchising. We’ve reached milestone growth year after year and our franchisees continue to serve communities around the country. I look forward to what’s to come for this brand in 2020.”

The key factors that go into the evaluation for the Franchise 500 ranking include franchise 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 Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand 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."
