At Bloomin’ Blinds, we believe we offer one of the strongest and most supportive franchise opportunities around. We are so proud of the way our franchise owners use our extensive resources and proven business model to build toward continued growth and success. Therefore, we are truly honored—if not entirely surprised—that Bloomin’ Blinds has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s first Top Growth Franchises list.
Using data submitted and analyzed for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list, the magazine created this new list of the 150 franchise companies showing the most consistent, sustained growth over the past three years. To be considered for the Top Growth Franchise list, companies with positive growth of at least five units each year from 2016 to 2019 were scored on a number of factors, including non-renewals, terminations, and other closures. The top 150 companies were then ranked, and Bloomin’ Blinds made the list at #140.
As Jason Feifer, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur explains, this ranking indicates a healthy support system for those looking to invest. “By maintaining steady, sustained growth over several years, these franchises have demonstrated that they have the systems in place to support their franchisees and help them become successful,” he says. “Now as these and other companies around the country face unprecedented challenges, they may see their growth slow, but that record of success could prove more important than ever.”
Obviously, this award belongs to our wonderful Bloomin’ Blinds franchise owners as much as it does to our leadership team. “We are incredibly proud of the franchise owners who continue to help us move Bloomin’ Blinds forward!” says our CEO, Kelsey Stuart. “Without positive validation from our existing owners, we would never be able to grow as fast as we are. The fact that the current owners are happy being here and are willing to share that with prospective franchise owners is a major force in our fast growth.”
