TAMARAC, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--One of the nation’s fastest growing property restoration and remediation franchises, PuroClean, ascended the ranks of Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2017 Franchise 500, sliding up to No. 409 on the annual prestigious list of the nation’s top franchise brands.
Noted as the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking of the top franchise opportunities in the United States, the Franchise 500 list recognizes and celebrates top franchises based on financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the franchise system. More than 1,000 U.S. franchise companies applied for the 2016 ranking.
PuroClean closed out 2016 with the addition of 24 new franchises, all of which have been trained and are fully operational. The company’s Chairman and CEO, Mark W. Davis, anticipates that the franchise will add approximately 60 new locations this year. “PuroClean is ‘on the move’ and that is evidenced by the fact that since we bought the company a year and a half ago, we have experienced tremendous growth across the system. We’re aggressively expanding our footprint across North America and investing significantly in technology, training, and national account development for our franchisees and their employees. This foundation will set our franchise partners up for success for years to come.”
Among other notable rankings, the restoration industry made headlines as one of the fastest growing sectors, a combined $188 billion industry. The increase in property damage claims and overall rise in weather-related events throughout the United States have caused the demand for restoration services to rise to an all-time high.
“Large insurance carriers want to partner with companies like PuroClean because they know we will respond quickly, do the job correctly and conduct ourselves professionally,” Steve White, president and COO of PuroClean, said. “As our growth continues, we have the right processes in place to ensure the same high-quality standard is consistent throughout the franchise system. That’s why companies like Liberty Mutual and Allstate have expanded their relationship with PuroClean. Our relentless pursuit of delivering world class customer service is the key to our success.”

Each year, PuroClean performs thousands of jobs throughout the United States and Canada providing restoration services from common household mishaps to large scale disasters.
