Window World Makes Entrepreneur’s 2021 Franchise 500 List

Window World is proud to have landed on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list for 2021! The company is #268, moving up nearly 100 spots from #356 last year.

In order to be eligible for this list, “a franchisor must be seeking new franchisees in the U.S. or Canada and must have had a minimum of 10 units open and operating as of July 31, 2020, with at least one franchise located in North America.” Window World has added 10 locations over the past three years, for a total of over 200 locations nationwide.

The companies on this list are evaluated based on five franchise factors:

  • Costs & Fees
  • Size & Growth
  • Support
  • Brand Strength
  • Financial Strength & Stability

Companies are awarded points across the different factors, on 150 different data points. The companies with the highest scores make the list.

We are immensely proud to have made the cut, as it was a highly competitive year. Over 1000 companies applied for the list, which Entrepreneur states was a record number of applicants.
