Las Vegas, NV, December 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- ActionCOACH is starting off its new year strong with several awards for 2010 – and 2010 hasn’t even started yet.
The company was recently named an AllBusiness AllStar Franchise and the Top Coaching Franchise for 2010 by AllBusiness.com. Editors at AllBusiness.com took a number of business indicators into account when compiling rankings, including a quantitative measure of brand awareness, how fast new franchises are being added, how long each company has been in business and franchising, and the total number of franchises and company-owned units.
ActionCOACH maintained their same overall rank, No. 71, and strong brand awareness ranking, No. 89, as on last year’s AllStar Franchise list, and its growth ranking was its best ranking, No. 68, up from No. 89 on last year’s list.
Last year was the first year for this list, but it is regarded as one of the most transparent and interactive rankings of its kind. The company believes this is also the only list that draws upon the in-depth financial analysis of its parent company, D&B (Dun and Bradstreet).
Given today’s economy, AllBusiness.com’s ranking formula places particular emphasis on financial strength. AllBusiness.com stated on its website: “All of our winners have a strong financial foundation to survive and prosper in these tough times.”
“Coaching tends to be a hot industry during recessions, as start-ups launch and existing businesses seek help staying afloat,” AllBusiness.com stated on its website. “As business coaches, ActionCOACH franchisees are trained to deal with economic downturns, giving them an edge.”
In addition to its rankings on AllBusiness.com’s list, ActionCOACH was also ranked No. 65 in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 rankings, and No. 1 in their Business Coaching category. ActionCOACH has ranked No. 1 in Entrepreneur’s Business Coaching category for seven consecutive years.
“The fact that we’ve maintained and increased our rank on AllBusiness.com’s AllStar Franchise list says a lot about ActionCOACH,” founder and chairman Brad Sugars said. “It shows we’re a strong franchise, and we’re not going to let a suffering economy affect our business negatively. Instead, we’re going to use the opportunity to help people and their businesses.”
