Anago Cleaning Systems (Anago), a leading commercial cleaning franchise with 35 Master Franchises throughout the U.S. and internationally, has announced its ranking in the Franchise Business Review’s 2014 Franchise Satisfaction Awards (FBR50) for the seventh straight year. Now in its ninth year, the FBR50 is the only awards program to rank companies based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction.
Franchise Business Review surveyed all active Master Franchisees in the Anago System, as well as franchisees from over 350 other brands. Anago was the highest-ranked commercial cleaning company on the list. The survey included questions relating to the franchisee’s experience and satisfaction with such topics as training and support, core values, leadership, financial opportunity, operations and product development. “We are thrilled to be ranked for the seventh consecutive year on Franchise Business Review’s FBR50,” said Adam Povlitz, Executive Vice President for Anago. “This continued ranking validates our brand and confirms that the franchise support and resources provided to our Master and Unit Franchisees all throughout the world have helped these entrepreneurs enjoy a fulfilling personal and professional life.”
In 2013, Anago announced a record year with the addition of seven Master Franchises and hopes to add another six Master Franchises in 2014, with a focus on developing in Houston, Austin, Phoenix, Chicago and Kansas City, among other markets. The strength of the brand was not only represented through its growth in domestic Master Franchises, but also by its international expansion into Canada. Having opened its first location in Vancouver in 2013, Anago plans to grow its footprint in Canada by expanding into more markets including Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.
As further verification to its success over the past year, Anago was listed in USA Today’s Top 50 Franchises for Minorities; ranked 7th on a list of Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Home Based Franchises for its Unit Franchise opportunity and 10th on the magazine’s list of Top 10 Fastest-Growing Franchises; and named in Franchise Business Review’s Top 100 leading franchises for Veterans in 2013.
“2013 was a great year for franchising as a whole. Many of our top companies had the best year in their history, and their franchisee satisfaction reflects that,” said Michelle Rowan, President of Franchise Business Review.
