The Maids Again Ranked a Top Franchisee in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Highly Competitive 40th Annual Franchise 500 Ranking

Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Ranked 2019    

The Maids recently ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, as evidenced by the fact that Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500® ranks The Maids as 69 for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

“As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500, it’s a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology.”


“We are honored and excited to once again receive this acknowledgment from Entrepreneur,” said Colin Bishop, president and CEO of The Maids International, franchisor of The Maids. “Like the Franchise 500 ranking, this year The Maids also celebrates 40 years of providing healthy living environments for our customers and their families. As a franchise network, we take great pride in being identified by Entrepreneur as a top franchise, regardless of industry.”


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 40 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. The Maids’ position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
