Window World®, America’s leading replacement window and exterior remodeling company, is proud to announce that it has been included on The Franchise Times Top 400®, an annual ranking of the largest U.S. franchise brands based on global systemwide sales.
Ranked number 90 on the list for 2021, Window World climbed 33 spots since last year’s ranking was published. This is the first time the Window World has broken into the top 100. The movement up the rankings shows the company’s persistent growth and commitment to its customers.
Previously the Top 200+, Franchise Times renamed its annual ranking of the 400 largest U.S.- based franchise systems to better encompass the biggest brands in franchising, as well as younger companies in growth mode. The research team uses a combination of companies’ voluntary reports and publicly available data, including the franchises’ most recent franchise disclosure documents and Securities and Exchange Commission filings to compile the rankings.
This is the latest in a string of accolades for Window World. In 2021 alone, the company earned a spot on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list and was designated a “2021 Military Friendly Employer” for its efforts in creating meaningful career paths for military veterans. The franchise also recently celebrated the milestone sale of its 20 millionth window.
