The Chem-Dry cleaning franchise has been named No. 39 on Entrepreneur magazine’s Top Global Franchises list for 2016, rocketing up from No. 102 on the same list last year.
It would be easy to be ho-hum about this news, since the Chem-Dry cleaning franchise so routinely earns these kinds of honors. But with Chem-Dry, every honor earned is appreciated.
“We never get tired of seeing how well Chem-Dry performs when stacked up against the competition, and when you do this well on a global ranking it’s even better,” says Dan Tarantin, President and CEO. “Now add in the well-respected Entrepreneur magazine name, and it’s a win all around for us.”
Rankings are a major go-to resource
Entrepreneur magazine is one of the most widely read magazines in the United States and around the world, so this list has a long reach. “Franchisors, franchise owners and potential owners look at rankings from many sources throughout the year to gauge progress and interest,” Dan explains.
“Whether you’re an owner-operator or a franchisor, the best way to keep up with the competition is to see how well they are ranked,” he says. “Potential owners start their research by looking at these lists, and a global list such as this one means that potential small business owners all over the world are seeing what a great opportunity a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise can be.”
Honors help with international expansion
As the Chem-Dry cleaning franchise continues to expand its global footprint, most recently with new franchises in the Caribbean and Turkey, honors such as this one will help elevate the brand’s profile.
“We are seeing tremendous growth in the United States and abroad, and the value we bring to territories everywhere from Texas to Turkey is validated by recognition such as this,” Dan says. “This magazine will go to millions of readers, and they are familiar with us thanks to more than two decades’ worth of top rankings in Entrepreneur’s various franchise listings. This is another feather in our cap, and we know we’ll be hearing from a lot of people once they see what we have to offer.”
