Paul Davis Receives a Coveted Top Ranking in the Franchise Community

Paul Davis, North America’s leading restoration franchise, has been named to Franchise Times Top 200 Franchises ranking in its current October issue.  The Franchise Times Top 200+® is the only ranking by systemwide sales and units of the largest 500 U.S.-based franchise brands. Last March, Paul Davis was also named as a Best Buy in franchising by Franchise Times as part of its annual Zor Awards program designed to recognize brands in 10 of franchising’s most exciting and accessible categories. For this current ranking, the Top 200 largest U.S.-based franchisors named, grew their combined annual sales by more than $30 billion or 4.5 percent last year, to $702.9 billion, with most categories seeing across-the-board gains from the previous year.

“These numbers are a new high-water mark for the ranking, which is the result of a five-month research and reporting effort that leads to the most credible and objective franchise ranking available”, said Franchise Times Editor Laura Michaels. The collection of systemwide sales data also provides useful insight into the franchise industry’s pre-COVID-19 performance.

“It’s been an extraordinary year for Paul Davis,” said Mike Hopkins, Sr., the company’s COO. “We have had to pivot to service first responders’ vehicles very quickly by applying disinfectant that kills the Covid-19 virus to each one as a complementary service from us. Since time was of the essence, it also served as great training for our team members who participated. Out of this need came our TouchLessService™ program, which we designed to safeguard customers and employees during the pandemic, and possibly beyond. Staying nimble in an environment like this helps us serve each customer’s particular needs and modify our approaches.”
