PuroClean Advances to #97 on the 2022 Franchise 500
TAMARAC, Fla.—January 25, 2022—For the first time in its history, PuroClean has broken into the top 100 franchise opportunities in North America according to Entrepreneur magazine’s 2022 Franchise 500 list. PuroClean ranked 2nd in the restoration service franchise category and ranked 97th overall, achieving its highest position to date. For the fourth consecutive year, PuroClean has moved up on the overall list, jumping an additional 5 places and rising more than 160 spots since first appearing in the Franchise 500 in 2018.
“We are proud to once again be recognized by Entrepreneur in this way, which underscores our unbridled commitment to providing passionate, relentless service to both our franchisees and their communities,” said Steve White, president and COO of PuroClean. “This past year was one of challenge and growth; through it all, our franchise owners and their teams never faltered, continuing to surpass expectations at every turn. We continued reaching new milestones in 2021 and see big things ahead in 2022.”
One of the fastest-growing restoration franchises in the United States, PuroClean offers its franchise owners the opportunity to build a business with low entry barriers, no storefront requirement, expedited opening timelines, and a wealth of training and support systems. In 2021, PuroClean’s franchise development team welcomed 77 new signings to the network, including 14 new locations by existing PuroClean franchise owners. Multi-unit ownership saw an increase within the past year, leading to further expansion of territory coverage from within. PuroClean’s expanding footprint exceeded the company’s annual goal of opening 55 offices and increasing location count by 12 percent.
With thousands of submissions each year, the Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Ranking is recognized as the world’s most comprehensive franchise list. Each honoree was evaluated against key factors such as costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, financial strength, and stability. PuroClean has also been previously recognized by Entrepreneur in other prestigious lists, ranking 7th in the “Top Franchises for Less Than $100,000” list, 37th in the “Top Franchises for Veterans” list, and 124 in the “Top Global Franchises” list.
Beyond cracking the Top 100 on the list, PuroClean has earned other accolades for its innovation and franchise owner support initiatives, including praise for its PuroVet program, which helps military veterans realize their dream of business ownership, as well as its state-of-the-art facilities and training programs. Earlier this month, PuroClean made an appearance in Franchise Times’ “Fast and Serious” list, recognized for their franchise growth and stellar performance in 2021. This past year, PuroClean rolled out the Microbial Warriors course series—a training program developed by industry veteran Jeff Jones and facilitated by PuroClean Director of Training and Technical Services, Darren Hudema.
“Our franchise owners, leadership, and support teams are direct contributors to the successes of our organization, and we couldn’t be prouder of the work that took place in 2021, as well as all that we see on the horizon for our network in 2022,” said Mark W. Davis, PuroClean CEO and chairman.
