Franchise Excellence: PrideStaff Named to Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® List for Seventh Consecutive Year

January 17, 2019

PrideStaff, a national, franchised staffing organization, is pleased to announce that they were named a top 500 franchise by Entrepreneur for the seventh year in a row. After entering at number 319 on the 2013 Franchise 500® List, PrideStaff has made the list each year since then and is holding strong in 2019 at number 156.

Forty years after the inaugural Franchise 500® ranking, the franchise industry is as robust and competitive as ever. Once again, more than 1,000 companies applied to Entrepreneur’s franchise ranking and were evaluated on factors like franchise size and fees, growth rate, marketing and operational support, brand strength, and financial stability. To be eligible to rank, a franchisor must have been seeking new franchisees in the U.S. or Canada and must have had a minimum of 10 units open and operating as of July 31, 2018, with at least one franchise located in North America.

“Being consistently listed on what’s touted as ‘the world’s first, best, and most comprehensive franchise ranking’ is a huge accomplishment for us, and it provides evidence that our franchise model works in any market conditions,” said PrideStaff Vice President of Franchise Development Paula Pizarro. “PrideStaff’s national resources, proven processes, industry-leading technology and true entrepreneurial spirit helps franchisees to build profitable businesses focused on creating exceptional customer experiences. By fueling our clients’ and candidates’ success, we fuel our own.”

This latest recognition is one of many PrideStaff has received from Entrepreneur within the past twelve months. In addition to making the Franchise 500® Ranking, PrideStaff also distinguished itself by being named an Entrepreneur 2018 Top Franchise Brand and a 2018 Top Franchise for Veterans.

The success of PrideStaff’s approach is evident, as they consistently rank among the highest 1% of staffing firms in the industry. According to Inavero, a business intelligence firm specializing in the staffing industry, PrideStaff earned a client Net Promoter® Score (NPS) as high as or higher than other well-known brands such as Southwest Airlines and Netflix. NPS is computed by subtracting a firm’s detractors from its promoters.
