The Maids Recognized as an AllBusiness AllStar Franchise

OMAHA, Neb. – The Maids was recently recognized by AllBusiness as an AllStar Franchise for 2011. The Maids is ranked 49 among 300 franchise companies chosen as the “best of the best” by AllBusiness parent company, Dun and Bradstreet.

“The AllStar Franchise list recognizes franchises with a strong financial foundation,” explained Colin Bishop, president and chief executive officer. “We are pleased that despite the recent economic climate, The Maids has maintained financial strength and enjoyed a position in the top 100 of the AllStar ranking over the last two years for that reason.”

The AllStar ranking formula places particular emphasis on financial strength and takes into consideration the new realities of cash and credit created by the recent recession. AllBusiness AllStar franchises were chosen because of their ability to not only survive, but prosper in tough economic times.

The Maids moved higher in the 2011 ranking thanks in part to increased Web visibility. In addition, other key business indicators used in compiling the rankings included: a quantitative measure of brand awareness; the rate at which new franchises are added; how long each company has been in business and franchising; and the total number of franchises and company-owned units.
