Even with the challenges that the last two years have thrown at the world in general and the door and window industry in particular, Window World stayed on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list for the third year in a row. The North Wilkesboro, N.C. -based company clocked in at number 385 on the list.

Just to be eligible for consideration, “a franchisor must be seeking new franchisees in the U.S. or Canada and must have had a minimum of 10 units open and operating as of July 31, 2020, with at least one franchise located in North America.” Window World expanded its operations by 10 locations in three years and has more than 200 locations to its name.

The list is compiled by taking into account five franchise factors: costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Companies accrue points across the different factors, on 150 different data points, and the highest scores make the list.

Entrepreneur reports that there were a record number of applicants for the list, with more than one thousand companies vying for a spot.
