Franchise Business Review Lists Franchise Brands with Staying Power During Recession and Beyond
PALM HARBOR, Fla. (May 5, 2022) – Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services has again been named one of Franchise Business Review’s (FBR’s) “Top 100 Recession-Proof Franchises.” The annual list includes businesses from a wide array of industries and varying levels of investment that FBR expects to outperform competitors and that have high franchisee satisfaction rates.
“While no business is 100% recession-proof, these franchise businesses have demonstrated that they are highly recession-resistant based on historical performance,” said Eric Stites, FBR’s CEO. “For people seeking to be their own boss, the Top 100 Recession-Proof businesses we identified this year not only have outstanding satisfaction among their owners — one of the most important factors to consider before investing in any franchise opportunity — but they have performed well in good times and bad, and we feel they hold a strong advantage to outperform their competitors in the years ahead.”
“We are proud and honored to once again be named to FBR’s list of the Top 100 Recession-Proof Franchises,” said Todd Hopkins, founder of Office Pride. “At Office Pride, our mission is to honor God, by positively impacting people and workplaces, with a commitment to providing total customer satisfaction. We are thankful that our franchisees are able to achieve their dreams of business ownership, even during a global pandemic, and we are humbled to have helped them achieve their success.”
This is the third year that FBR has compiled this list, and the franchise market research firm has continued to see growth in many service industries. FBR noted that brands with the highest franchisee satisfaction ratings are the most successful.
FBR President and COO Michelle Rowan said, “Our awards tell the true story – where are franchisees the most satisfied and which brands offer the best opportunity for success.” In reference to their award winners, she adds, “They are the brands that support and train their franchisees, the brands whose corporate office communicates with franchisees and cares enough to ask what they really think.”
More than 32,000 franchisees representing over 300 franchise brands participated in FBR’s franchisee satisfaction survey over 18 months. Franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations and financial opportunity.
Office Pride is consistently ranked among the nation’s top franchises by multiple organizations. For 15 consecutive years, Office Pride has been one of FBR’s Top 200 Franchises to Buy, earning the brand a place in the FBR Hall of Fame. Office Pride also is ranked on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. Both FBR and Entrepreneur recognize Office Pride as one of the Top Franchises for Veterans and as one of the best low-cost franchises. Additionally, FBR has ranked Office Pride as a Top Franchise for Women and a Top Home-Based and Mobile Franchise. Office Pride also is included in Franchise Times’ Top 400 ranking.
