Beverly, MA – Supporting Strategies recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500® ranks Supporting Strategies for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.
“2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year of unusual opportunity,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur editor-in-chief. “Franchises were able to be nimble and innovative, serving the needs of franchisees and customers in ways that will resonate for many years to come. We believe that, when we eventually look back on this time, we’ll see it as a moment when many brands defined themselves for the future.”
"Supporting Strategies is honored to be included on the Entrepreneur magazine Franchise 500®. The Supporting Strategies business model has always been a home-based model. So, in this time of adversity, our model has the systems and processes needed to support a highly productive and effective home-based franchise," said Supporting Strategies Founder and CEO Leslie Jorgensen. "This model has helped our franchisees continue to grow and succeed despite a challenging year."
In Entrepreneur’s continuing effort to best understand and evaluate the ever-changing franchise marketplace, the company’s 42-year-old ranking formula continues to evolve as well. The key factors that go into the evaluation include 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.
Over its 42 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Supporting Strategies’ position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
