Magazine ranking based on sales and unit data; PIRTEK is positioned at No. 150
The Franchise Times has placed PIRTEK at No. 150 on its prestigious Top 200+ list. It marks the first time PIRTEK has made the magazine’s list of 500 high-performing franchises, ranked according to 2018 sales and unit data.
“The Franchise Times ranking is truly an honor and we want to thank each and every team member who contributed to that success every day,” said Kim Gubera, PIRTEK USA’s CEO. “It’s always encouraging to have an esteemed publication recognize us like this, and I know all stakeholders in the organization will work hard to increase our ranking on next year’s list.”
The only franchise brand of its kind in the United States, PIRTEK specializes in hydraulic and industrial hose services through its locations throughout the country. PIRTEK USA team members are also available 24/7 to provide onsite repairs to hydraulic and industrial hoses, thanks to the company’s specially equipped Mobile Service Vehicles. PIRTEK boasts more than 400 franchise locations in 23 countries around the world, including 90 in the United States.
The Franchise Times Top 200+ is indicative of the U.S. economy’s vitality and that of the franchises contributing to it. The companies on this year’s list added $26.9 billion in sales over the previous year, posting a grand total of $671.3 billion. According to the magazine, that figure represents 3.27 percent of the entire U.S. gross domestic product.
PIRTEK enjoyed record-breaking sales in 2019. The company has been in an expansion mode since rolling out its Tier 2 program in 2016, when the total of U.S. locations was 58. The Tier 2 option enables business owners to launch a franchise at a lower initial cost. A franchisee can keep the inventory in a small warehouse or storage facility and lease two vehicles. Tier 2 owners are expected to advance to a Tier 1 location in three years. The standard Tier 1 model requires a franchisee to have a full Service & Supply Center staffed with five to seven employees and at least two Mobile Service Vehicles.
