Stratus Building Solutions, the nation's leading green commercial cleaning and janitorial services franchise, continues adding to its list of franchising honors. The latest spotlight comes from Entrepreneur magazine, which awarded Stratus Building Solutions with a Top 5 and a Top 10 placement on its two 2021 Fastest-Growing Franchises lists.

Stratus Building Solutions was ranked No. 3 on the United States and Canada list and No. 9 overall out of the 150 international franchises that were recognized as brands with the greatest unit growth over the past year.

“The past year was so challenging for businesses, and we’re thrilled to have been in a position to fill a need and serve a purpose,” said Afshin Cangarlu, Stratus Building Solutions CEO. “I am proud of the way our system was able to grow to meet the increased demand for cleaning and disinfecting services during the pandemic.”

Stratus Building Solutions quickly recognized the importance of commercial cleaning companies as the COVID-19 virus began to spread across the U.S. and Canada. The company was able to position itself as an expert in the field and provide services to keep businesses, employees and customers safe. By the end of 2020, Stratus had disinfected more than 10,000 businesses.

While doing so, the franchise continued its rapid growth to earn its spot as a Fastest-Growing Franchise.

Entrepreneur’s annual ranking is compiled using data submitted for the most recent Franchise 500 list; and is based on the net total of new units during the period in review. The 2021 list counted the new units that each franchise added from July 2019 to July 2020.
