SERVPRO®Named to Entrepreneur’s Top 10 Franchise List

for 7th Consecutive Year

Cleanup and restoration franchisor retains top ranking in restoration services category and climbs to #4 ranking overall in the 2016 Franchise 500 rankings

 

Salem, VA  January 19, 2016 - SERVPRO®, a cleanup and restoration franchise company, maintains its hold on the top ranking in the Restoration Services industry for the 13th consecutive year and moves up to the number four spot overall in the 2016 Franchise 500 rankings from Entrepreneur magazine.* This is the seventh consecutive year SERVPRO has been included in the magazine’s Top 10 list, standing out in a group of more than 951 franchises that qualified for inclusion in the list.

 Some of the most important factors considered by Entrepreneur in developing the list each year are “financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.”

“It’s exciting to be part of a dynamic organization that continues to grow and strives to always provide superior support for its franchisees, and by extension its customers,” said Lisa Mongan, owner of SERVPRO of Montgomery and Pulaski Counties. “The recognition that the company earns year after year in this prestigious list is confirmation of a commitment to excellence that starts at the top and is evident in the service that each franchisee provides to each and every customer.”

 According to Mongan, a number of differentiators set SERVPRO apart from the competition and fuel the attractiveness of the company to both existing franchisees and would-be entrepreneurs looking for a strong business opportunity. Key among these are:

·         SERVPRO’s strength as a brand with a national footprint, wide-spread market penetration, laser-focused brand messaging, and the ability to create national partnerships with organizations such as the PGA TOUR and the American Red Cross.

SERVPRO’s commitment to being a learning organization, which keeps training and support at the forefront of the company’s culture and philosophy of success and helps franchisees plan, track, and deliver best-in-class services to consumers

'Twas the night before Christmas

'Our office Manager Julie Wilburn honored her coworkers with her rendition of Twas The Night Before Christmas.  Hope you enjoy as much as we did...........

Twas the night before Christmas and all thru SERVPRO not a crew member was resting they were ready to go! 

The hoses were hung by the truck mounts with care in hopes that a St. Mongan soon would be there! 

Marketing was nestled all snug in their beds - while visions of ERP’s danced in their heads.

With all the jobs uploaded and invoicing done, the girls in the office and were having some fun!  

When out in the warehouse there arose such a clatter I sprang from my desk to see what was a matter!  

Away to the warehouse I flew in hurry - the bay door was open - I was beginning to worry! 

Then what to my wondering eyes should appear - but a large loss trailer and 9 crew chiefs in hero gear! 

With a super hero driver, a real man among men  - I knew in a moment it must be Saint Quinn!! 

More rapid than SERVICE MASTER his crew chiefs came - and he whistled and shouted and called them by name!

Now Zack, now Matt, now Quinn and Robert and Jimmy! 

On Mikee, on T, on Nikki and Timmy!

To the top of the ceiling, don't miss that spot on the wall - now clean away clean away clean away all!!  

So up to the roof top his crew chiefs they flew with a van full of scrubbers and St. Quinn too!! 

And then in a twinkling I heard on the roof the stomping and smashing of each little boot.

As I ran to my desk and was turning around - down the duct work St. Quinn came with a bound. 

He was dressed all in green from his head to his foot and his uniform was covered with ashes and soot!

He was smiling and joking - a very jolly old elf 

And I laughed when I saw him in spite of myself!

He spoke not a word but went straight to his work - he emptied all the truck mounts and turned with a jerk.

And laying a carpet wand beside of the hose - and giving a nod up the duct work he rose. 

He sprung to his trailer, his crew on the ball

And away they flew like there was an all call! 

And I heard him exclaim so that all could hear   - Merry Christmas dear SERVPRO - it was a very good year!
