Commercial cleaning is one of the fastest growing franchise opportunities. Five commercial cleaning franchises ranked in the top 50 of Entrepreneur magazine’s Fastest-Growing Franchises list. Two companies, Jan-Pro Franchising Int’l. Inc. and Stratus Building Solutions, finished in the top 10 franchises.

“We are thrilled to be named as one of the fastest-growing franchises,” says Afshin Cangarlu, CEO of Stratus Building Solutions. “We have an incredible network of franchisees who work hard to grow the Stratus brand. I am proud of the work we have done so far, and I am looking forward to building on this momentum moving forward.”

The list recognizes the 150 companies with the greatest franchise unit growth in North America, based on data submitted for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 ranking. Five commercial cleaning companies made the 2019 list. Aside from the aforementioned companies, those also making the ranking were Buildingstars Int’l. Inc., Vanguard Cleaning Systems and Anago Cleaning Systems.

Entrepreneur’s 2019 Fastest-Growing Franchises ranking is based on each company’s net franchise-unit growth in the United States and Canada from July 31, 2017 to July 31, 2018, with ties broken based on percentage growth.

“Franchising trends are always changing, and our ranking of the fastest-growing franchises offers crisp insight into what’s hot right now,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur’s editor in chief. “And through this list, we’re also able to see the strategies that help newer brands ramp up quickly and that enable older ones to maintain their momentum.”
