Waiting Game Publications® Franchise Named To Prestigious Entrepreneur Top 500 Franchise List
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JANUARY 15th, 2014
Lithia, FL.- Waiting Game Publications, LLC announced today that Entrepreneur magazine has named the Waiting Game Publications brand to the 2014 Franchise 500. Entrepreneur’s franchise 500 is widely considered to be the best recognized and comprehensive franchise ranking and is now in its 35th year.
This year Waiting Game Publications® has been ranked #421 after only 3 years of franchising. Entrepreneur judges all companies, regardless of size, by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate, and size of the system. They also consider the number of years the company has been in business and the length of time it has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations, and whether the company provides financing.
The objective factors listed above are plugged into Entrepreneur’s exclusive Franchise 500 formula, which gives each eligible company a cumulative score. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500.
“Obviously we are very excited and pleased to be named to this prestigious list. To be along-side many mature, well developed franchise concepts is extremely gratifying for us. This is a great validation that what we are doing is working and is resonating with entrepreneurs. We are so excited and looking forward to 2014 at The Waiting Game®. It’s going to be a great year!” said Bill Zapf, President of Waiting Game Publications®.
In her notification letter to Waiting Game Publications, LLC, vice president and Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Media Inc, Amy C Cosper stated, “It’s been an exciting and challenging year for franchising and this year marks an exciting new beginning. With that- We celebrate you and your accomplishments.”
Cosper closed by saying that Waiting Game Publications® is “an inspiration to all businesses” and “wishes for continued prosperity.”
