“Placement in Entrepreneur’s annual Franchise 500® is such a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, and Aire Serv is honored to have been included in this prestigious list,” said Steve Truett, President of Aire Serv. “Given all the obstacles we had to overcome in 2020, being recognized as a top franchise opportunity feels better than ever and sets us up for continued growth and success in the new 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. Aire Serv’s position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
“2020 was a challenging year for everyone, but it was also a year of unusual opportunity,” said 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.”
