Ranking Solidifies Stratus’ Reputation as an Affordable and Noteworthy Business Venture

LOS ANGELES (May 2019) – Stratus Building Solutions was recently ranked as the second-least expensive franchise to purchase in Entrepreneur magazine’s “Top 100 Franchises for Less Than $50,000 in 2019.”

This was exciting news for the Stratus Building Solutions management team. The environmentally-friendly commercial cleaning company already prides itself on its franchises being very accessible, as evidenced by partnerships with associations such as VetFran, DiversityFran and U.S. Green Building Council. But landing the second ranking on the “Top 100 Franchises for Less Than $50,000 in 2019,” demonstrates that the company is also making itself available to people who are budget conscious and simply don’t have a ton of resources at hand to start a business.

“We are thrilled to have been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine,” says Afshin Cangarlu, CEO of Stratus Building Solutions. “We have worked hard to refine our business model to be effective and affordable. Our business is both scalable and efficient, meaning we are able to keep our cost of entry low and appeal to a wide array of ambitious entrepreneurs.”

As Entrepreneur noted, Stratus Building Solutions’ startup costs can be as low as $4,400. It ranges from $4.4K to $72.9K, depending on factors such as how much franchise owners want to invest in equipment and inventory.

This is the third honor Stratus has had with Entrepreneur magazine this year. In January, when Entrepreneur magazine debuted its annual Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking, Stratus was ranked #42. This represents a sweeping improvement over Stratus’ already excellent ranking from 2018 — moving up 61 spots from 103 to 42. Placement in the Franchise 500 is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry. Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. Recognized as an invaluable resource for potential franchisees, the Franchise 500 ranks Stratus Building Solutions as 42nd for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power. Additionally, Stratus received another noteworthy honor in March and was ranked #7 for Fastest-Growing Franchise.
