SERVPRO makes Top 10 list

Entrepreneur magazine recently announced its annual Franchise 500 rankings, naming SERVPRO, a cleanup and restoration company with a franchise that serves Cape Ann, to its Top 10 list for the fifth consecutive year.

Of the 853 companies qualified for the rankings, SERVPRO earned the No. 7 spot overall and the top spot in its own industry for the 11th consecutive year.

According to Entrepreneur, the Franchise 500 selection process is driven by “objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation,” with some of the most important factors being “financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.”

“This is a very satisfying achievement,” said Rick Isaacson, executive vice president of Servpro Industries Inc. in a statement, “and we’re proud of our franchise team that delivers — year over year — the highest levels of customer service and satisfaction.”

The SERVPRO of Beverly/Cape Ann franchise specializes in fire and water cleanup and restoration services, helping both commercial and residential customers recover from property damage emergencies.

“At the end of the day, our franchisees are individual small business owners who live and work in the communities they serve,” said Isaacson. “When the unexpected happens, local home and business owners know they can turn to their local SERVPRO professional to help them put their lives back on track as quickly and painlessly as possible.”

SERVPRO of Beverly/Cape Ann can be contacted at 978-927-8665, or by emailing antonio.lagrassa@gmail.com or find more information about the franchise at www.servprobeverlycapeann.com.
