St. Louis, MO – January 15, 2019 – APEXNETWORK PHYSICAL THERAPY was recently ranked in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Recognized by entrepreneurs as an invaluable resource to assess franchise concepts, the Franchise 500® ranks APEXNETWORK PHYSICAL THERAPY for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power.

“Truly, this recognition is a testament to the dedication of our franchise owners and staff,” says Jason Baxter, Director of Franchise Operations. “The personalized service they provide differentiates ourselves from other rehabilitation providers. This is our ultimate goal.”

“As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500, it’s a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology.”

The key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.

Over its 40 years in existence, the Franchise 500® has become both a dominant competitive measure for franchisors and a primary research tool for potential franchisees. APEXNETWORK PHYSICAL THERAPY’s inclusion in the ranking is a testament to its strength as a franchise opportunity.
