Entrepreneur Magazine recognises NOVUS Glass as top automotive franchise brand in Franchise 500 list

MONTREAL (Quebec), October 5, 2017 – Fix Auto World is proud to announce that US business publication Entrepreneur magazine has recognized NOVUS Glass, its automotive glass brand, as a top global brand in their first-ever 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 leads the automotive service category and placed 54th overall.

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 look 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."

“We are honored to receive this acknowledgement from Entrepreneur magazine,” stated 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.”

"This recognition reinforces our position, not only as a strong franchise, but as a top-tier consumer automotive franchise brand", concluded Carl Brabander, Vice President 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 US and globally is at the core of our vision."
