Stratus Building Solutions, the nation's leading green commercial cleaning and janitorial services franchise, is thrilled to announce its recognition as a leading franchise in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500.

Stratus is listed at No. 32 in the new report, climbing more than 40 spots higher than 2021. This is the company’s highest ranking in nearly a decade on the prestigious list which is widely considered an invaluable resource for potential franchisees.

“This is exciting news as we enter this new year,” said Afshin Cangarlu, CEO of Stratus Building Solutions. “Climbing the rankings like this shows the long-term stability and the growth of our model. I am proud of the hard work from everyone in our system over the last two years helping to keep people safe and healthy during the pandemic.”

The COVID-19 pandemic showed how valuable commercial cleaning services are. Stratus Building Solutions, which now has more than 60 master franchise locations in the United States and Canada, is committed to continuing to provide exceptional resources to help companies reduce exposure to virus-causing germs.

“The past year has been one of the most challenging for businesses in recent memory, which made putting together our 43rd annual Franchise 500 list more enlightening than ever,” says Entrepreneur Editor in Chief Jason Feifer. “The companies named to this year’s list showed us how being resilient, supportive, and nimble can help navigate extraordinary challenges and also underscore the grit and innovation that define entrepreneurship.”

The Entrepreneur Franchise 500 ranking is compiled after analysis of more than 150 data points, including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength and financial strength and stability. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores in those areas earn their ranking on the list.
