Interior Magic International Recognized in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2016 Franchise 500® List
Lexington, NC – Once again Interior Magic International tops the charts in the franchising industry. Entrepreneur magazine named Interior Magic International’s franchise system to its Franchise 500® list, widely considered the “best and most comprehensive franchise ranking” in the industry. Interior Magic’s impressive position in the Automotive Appearance Services category puts the brand in an elite group of franchise concepts and comes on the heels of a tremendous year of growth in 2015.
This noteworthy ranking validates the progress Interior Magic has made in the past couple years, which now has 47 franchise locations across the United States. Through a strategic franchise growth plan, the company plans to add an additional 8 to 10 franchise locations within the next 18 months, building on the momentum the company has established. In order to support this growth plan, construction is currently underway on a 12,000 sq. ft. addition/remodel to their Corporate Office and Training Facility located in Lexington, NC.
“We are honored to be recognized again as one of the top franchise systems in the country for Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® listing,” said Jeff Byerly, company President. “This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication our franchise owners, along with their management and sales team, put into making our concept and services the best they can be. We’re taking this opportunity to surge forward on every level to continue to provide our industry leading services across the United States.”
To be eligible for the Franchise 500®, a franchisor must have a minimum of 10 units, with at least one in the United States. All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same objective criteria including financial strength and stability, growth rate, size of the system, number of years a company has been in business, length of time it has been franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and whether the company provides financing.
“We especially credit our franchise employees as a large reason why we are consistently successful,” added Byerly. “Their commitment to our organization is second-to-none and they are like family to us. We are looking forward to adding even more franchisees to our team in the coming years, and being able to bring our reconditioning services to more customers across the country”.
Byerly along with his business partner Shane Loman founded Interior Magic and its franchise concept in 2001, and the brand has continued to be an industry leader since then.
