Showhomes Home Staging ranked in Top 50 by Franchise Business Review
For the third year in a row the Franchise Business Review ranked Showhomes Home Staging one of the Top 50 franchise systems based on franchise owner satisfaction, according to Bob Kohlruss, franchise owner for Showhomes – Folsom Lake.
The Franchise 50 2011 Franchisee Satisfaction Awards ranked franchisors by their overall levels of franchise owner satisfaction. The Top 50 ranking puts Showhomes in a select group of the best franchise companies in the country, and only companies with excellent fundamentals, a great financial position and high franchise owner satisfaction scores earn a spot.
“This is the most important award in franchising,” said Matt Kelton, Showhomes COO. “More than 80 percent of our owners said they would make the decision to purchase a Showhomes franchise again.”
Showhomes – Folsom Lake provides a twist on traditional home staging, using live-in home managers to occupy and help stage vacant houses so they are kept in perfect show condition. Showhomes whole-house staging dramatically improves the speed and price of a home sale and with millions of vacant houses on the market Showhomes is poised for additional growth.
The ranking comes as the home staging pioneer celebrates its 25th anniversary. Showhomes started staging homes in 1986, long before widespread use of home staging in real estate, and has evolved into a national franchise system with more than 70 locations.
“Franchisee satisfaction is one of the most important criteria to consider before investing in any franchise system,” said Franchise Business Review President Eric Stites. “Very few franchise companies have achieved such high ratings from their franchisees, which puts Showhomes in a very elite class of franchise opportunities.”
“Showhomes is a unique franchise that fills an important niche,” said Kohlruss. “I’m very happy with my business, and I believe it is one of the best franchises to open.”
