Pearle Vision® Carries Increased Franchising Momentum into 2018
The 2017 franchising achievements of Pearle Vision have brought even more clarity and focus to the brand’s growth – expansion that includes Pearle Vision strategically opening and adding to its development pipeline new EyeCare Centers across North America.
Now, to build upon the momentum being generated, Pearle Vision has earned a prestigious franchise industry accolade, reinforcing the strength of the franchise opportunity. Pearle Vision has earned the #1 ranking in the Health Products category of Entrepreneur magazine’s recently released “2018 Franchise 500” list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Additionally, Pearle Vision ranks #72 overall among all franchises in the ranking, placing the brand in the top 20 percent of U.S. franchise concepts. The respected ranking validates the progress the company has made in the past year.
In the past 12 months, new Pearle Vision EyeCare Centers have opened coast to coast with new franchisees in Bellevue, Wash., Atlanta, Ga., suburban Detroit and suburban Oklahoma City. Plus, existing franchisees are deepening their connection to the brand by investing in additional locations. From New England to Florida and Arizona to Ohio, seasoned franchisees who understand the strength of Pearle Vision’s complete value proposition have their sights set on new center growth.
The first two area developer agreements in 2017 are also fueling Pearle Vision’s growth. Launched in early 2017, the new opportunity has resulted in Pearle Vision awarding groups of qualified franchise investors the rights to open throughout entire designated market areas (DMAs) or states. Thus far, area developer groups are planning to or have already opened centers in Tampa and Phoenix. Prime U.S. markets remain available for expansion and the company is working to fill all available territories.
