Entrepreneur magazine recently announced its annual Franchise 500 rankings, naming SERVPRO, a cleanup and restoration franchise company with a location in Pequot Lakes, to its Top 10 list for the fifth consecutive year.
Of the 853 companies qualified for the rankings, SERVPRO earned the No. 7 spot overall and the top spot in its own industry for the 11th consecutive year. According to Entrepreneur, the Franchise 500 selection process is driven by “objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation,” with some of the most important factors being “financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.”
Laura Arends owns SERVPRO in the Brainerd and Park Rapids areas. SERVPRO specializes in fire and water cleanup and restoration services, helping both commercial and residential customers recover from property damage emergencies.
