INDUSTRY LEADERS: The 2009 Franchise Times Top 200 list ranks RE/MAX at No. 12.
RE/MAX joins the exclusive ranks of the most successful franchise chains in the world after being named to the 2009 Franchise Times Top 200. RE/MAX makes its debut on the list in the No. 12 position, in front of all other real estate competitors and in the company of top franchises such as McDonalds, 7-Eleven and Marriott Hotels.
The Franchise Times Top 200 is an annual financial snapshot of the 200 most successful U.S.-based franchise companies as measured by worldwide sales. The complete list of honorees appears in the October issue of Franchise Times.
“The RE/MAX Network continues to grow because we offer so much value to our franchise owners,” says Margaret Kelly, CEO of RE/MAX International. “Global brand recognition, the industry’s most extensive educational resources, and all the support our offices need to be productive and successful. We like to tell our owners that ‘at RE/MAX, you’re in business for yourself, but not by yourself.'”
Since the beginning of 2009, nine countries have joined the network, and RE/MAX International has sold nearly 400 franchises worldwide. There’s a presence in over 70 countries, more than any other real estate network.
The Franchise Times honor is the second time this year that RE/MAX has been recognized by the franchise community. In January, RE/MAX was the highest-ranked real estate franchise in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 30th Annual ÒFranchise 500 Survey,” a tribute the company has received in nine out of the last ten years.
RE/MAX has also been recognized as one of the “Top 25 Franchise Opportunities” by Hispanic Enterprise, and one of the “Top 50 Franchises for Minorities” by the National Minority Franchising Initiative.
And in 2009, for the third year in a row, RE/MAX was ranked on the list of America’s “Top 10 Military Spouse-Friendly Employers,” according to Military Spouse Magazine.
