Leading Indoor Air Quality Franchisor Earns Accolades in 2012 Franchise 500

AdvantaClean named among fastest growing and best home-based franchises.

Huntersville, NC, January 05, 2012 --(PR.com)-- AdvantaClean, a nationwide franchise company specializing in emergency water removal, air duct cleaning, and mold remediation, has earned a spot in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2012 Franchise 500, its annual ranking of America's top franchise opportunities. AdvantaClean’s ranking is number 257 overall, the company’s second appearance on the list, up from number 291 in 2011.

Companies making the Franchise 500 are evaluated on objective factors including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system. Additionally, several notable franchise superlatives – top home-based, top low cost, top new, fastest growing, and top global – are awarded to deserving companies. With 66 franchise units in the U.S., AdvantaClean nearly doubled its number of locations which earned a spot among the ‘Fastest Growing’ franchises for 2012. The fastest-growing rankings are based on the number of new units added in the United States and Canada over the last year. Because the franchise can be run from home and only needs minimal employees, the indoor air quality franchisor also ranked among the ‘Top Home-based’ franchise opportunities.

“Despite the topsy-turvy economy, we’ve experienced another great year of growth. We project this trend to continue for years to come, especially as the housing market turns around,” said Jeff Dudan, founder and CEO of AdvantaClean. “Disaster restoration and mold removal are expanding segments of the national service economy, both residential and commercial. We are excited Entrepreneur recognizes our company’s solid performance.”

AdvantaClean’s use of technology creates simplified operations and promotes consistent, superior customer service. All franchisees are connected with the Home Office through a centralized call center that schedules and books appointments directly to their calendar. AdvantaClean leaders attribute their franchise system’s success to providing franchise owners with a contemporary support model that keeps overhead low, and quality and efficiency high, clearing the path for franchisees to build a successful local business.
