IT Service Provider Franchise Recognized #1 in “Miscellaneous Tech Services” Category for 8th Year in a Row
CMIT Solutions announced today that it has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Rated number one in the “Miscellaneous Tech Services” category, CMIT Solutions also achieved a ranking in the top half of the list overall.
The recognition received by CMIT Solutions highlights the expansion made by the company in 2019. An addition of more than 15 locations last year brings the brand’s total number of locations to more than 200 in communities across the United States.
“We are honored to be recognized as the top miscellaneous tech service franchise for the eighth consecutive year as well as be included in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list among some of the best businesses,” said Roger Lewis, CEO of CMIT Solutions. "When I joined CMIT Solutions in June, we were already on a strong growth path and it only continues to amplify with our dedicated franchisees and technology partners. Looking forward to another year of building upon this growth.”
The key factors that go into the evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500 in ranking order.
“The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin’ that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble, and closely in touch with their customers’ needs—because in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive.
CMIT Solutions offers a broad spectrum of IT services including computer monitoring, help desk, back-up & recovery, and cyber security platforms, along with quick response onsite services when unexpected IT issues occur. CMIT Solutions has carved out its niche as an industry innovator that specializes in working with the small to mid-market business community. Combining this with the company’s leading technology partners, the SMB community now has an edge in today’s increasingly challenging marketplace.
Entrepreneurially spirited individuals interested in owning a CMIT Solutions franchise should have the ability to invest $128,300, which includes working capital and a typical franchise fee of $49,950. Plus, CMIT Solutions is a proud partner of the VetFran program. Approved candidates receive 20% off of the total franchise fee.
