Sir Grout Ranks on Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 List for the Fifth Consecutive Year
Alpharetta, GA – (PRWEB – December 30, 2014) – As a result of its hard work and constant growth, Sir Grout, the renowned hard surface restoration company, has found itself on Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 list for the fifth year running. Sir Grout was the only company in the tile and grout or stone industry to be selected for the list.
Franchise 500 List
When creating its Franchise 500 list, Entrepreneur Magazine takes into account a wide array of elements. Subjective factors (e.g. employee satisfaction) are not considered; only objective factors such as financial stability and strength, growth rate, how long the company has existed, when the company started franchising, and startup costs are taken into account. Entrepreneur then calculates the rank for each company by using a formula that combines each of these scores. While 972 companies made it past the first round of evaluation, only a select 500 franchises actually make it onto the list, and this year Sir Grout came in at number 330 (up 26 spots from last year).

Sir Grout has proven itself to be a strong franchise year after year with its consistent inclusion in the Franchise 500, and the growth rate factor might just be the driving force behind its sustained success.

and Sir Grout Baltimore
in the East, Sir Grout Denver
and Sir Grout Bay Area
in the West, and Sir Grout Southwest Missouri
in the Midwest.

Additionally, the Angie's List Super Service Award was given to Sir Grout in both 2012 and 2013. Receiving honors, such as being included in the Franchise 500, is what motivates the Sir Grout franchise owners to continue working hard and providing service of the highest possibile quality to every customer. As the co-founder of Sir Grout, Tom Lindberg, stated, "Even more so than our revolutionary products and services, each franchise owner plays an important role in Sir Grout's success. Our achievements are a direct result of their determination, hard work, and commitment to providing excellent service."
