COLOR GLO INTERNATIONAL NAMED A TOP 100 BY FRANCHISE GATOR FOR 2017!!!

Franchise Gator just released their Top 100 Franchises for 2017 and Color Glo is listed among them! 

Industry:  Franchise

APRIL 24, 2017

At the core of it, franchising is about risk reduction. You join a franchise because it provides a heightened chance of success as a business owner. The Top 100 has been designed, with the assistance of The Educated Franchisee, to measure the quality of a franchise system over time. Rankings are mostly based on a formula created from various pieces of the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that focus on financial stability, growth, transparency, engagement, continuity and sustainability. Hundreds of FDD's were studied this past year in an effort to bring you this ranking.

We also focused on evaluating franchise opportunities that fit the mold of what a typical Franchise Gator visitor seeks. That meant taking investment range and industry into account to create what we feel is truly a unique rankings list. So if you are looking for some of the more high ticket, recognizable names in franchising and don't see them, that by no means is a discredit to that franchise system. It simply means they were not part of our evaluation process.

Franchise Gator would like to thank the following people who's insight was invaluable and instrumental in the production of Franchise Gator's Top 100:

  • Rick Bisio - The Educated Franchisee
  • Eric Stites and Associates - Franchise Business Review
  • Thomas Scott - Brand Journalists
