Nation’s Leading Green Commercial Cleaning and Janitorial Services Franchise Secures #103 Ranking in Prestigious List


Stratus Building Solutions, the nation’s leading green commercial cleaning and janitorial services franchise, is receiving recognition as one of the country’s premiere franchises in Entrepreneur magazine’s recently released Franchise 500 list. Stratus Building Solutions landed at #103 on the coveted list that ranks companies for outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength, stability, and brand power.

“This is a very important distinction for us and I’m proud we are ranked so highly once again,” said Afshin Cangarlu, Stratus Building Solutions’ CEO. “This ranking is a testament to the hard work of our corporate office, master franchisees, and individual franchisees located coast to coast. We can’t wait to rise up the ranks in next year’s list as we continue to grow and improve the Stratus Building Solutions franchise system in 2018!”

The key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, corporate support, brand strength, and financial strength. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.

"This year’s Franchise 500 ranking features both up-and-comers who bring fresh ideas to an ever- changing industry, as well as savvy stalwarts that have thrived for decades. We are proud to highlight and celebrate them all,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “Our results show that the industry is strong—and that the most enduring franchisors are those who learn to balance innovation with reliability. That’s how to attract new customers while keeping the old ones happy.”

Over its 39 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. Stratus Building Solutions’ position on the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
