Entrepreneur magazine has recognized Novus Glass as a top global brand in the publication’s inaugural Top Franchise Brands list.
This list recognizes the 200 franchisors that have built the strongest brands, based on Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 ranking.
Novus Glass, which is No. 85 on the overall list, is No. 54 on the Top Franchise Brands list, leading the Automotive Service category.
To determine which franchises have the strongest brands, Entrepreneur analyzes factors such as social media followers, system size, number of years in business, number of years franchising, and overall reputation – and looks at how they all combine to form lasting relationships with consumers.
“This list captures the essence of what makes a strong brand: It’s that perfect balance between consistency and constant evolution,” says Jason Feifer, editor-in-chief of Entrepreneur. “The brands we highlight know exactly what they are, but they also embrace change.”
Founded in 1972, Novus Glass has been franchising since 1985. The company charges a $7,500 initial franchise fee and an 8-percent ongoing royalty fee to franchisees.
“We are honored to receive this acknowledgement from Entrepreneur magazine,” said Ted Andersen, VP of operations for Novus North America, “Since 1972, customers have come to know Novus as the brand they can trust to provide them with innovative solutions and quality products for all their glass service needs and more.”
Novus Glass is part of Montreal-based Fix Auto World.
“This recognition reinforces our position, not only as a strong franchise, but as a top-tier consumer automotive franchise brand,” said Carl Brabander, vice president of marketing for Fix Auto World. “We are proud to see this newest member of our global family of automotive aftermarket brands be acknowledged as a top player in their market. Creating synergies around all our lines of business, benefiting all of our brands, in the U.S. and globally is at the core of our vision.”
