Pearle Vision® Carries Increased Franchising Momentum into 2018
Entrepreneur Franchise 500 ranking and new openings reinforce the value of our optical franchise opportunity
Pearle Vision’s 2017 franchising achievements 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, Pearle Vision has earned a prestigious franchise industry accolade, reinforcing the strength of the optical franchise opportunity. Pearle Vision has earned the #1 ranking in the Health Products category of Entrepreneur magazine’s “2018 Franchise 500” list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking.
“We’re at a pivotal point of our historic brand,” said Alex Wilkes, General Manager for Pearle Vision. “The ranking on Entrepreneur’s ‘2018 Franchise 500’ list validates the energy and momentum behind the concept. The commitment we have made in recent years to cement Pearle Vision as the premium eye care brand, and category leader, continues to earn recognition. From the introduction of a game-changing operating model to our innovative marketing programs, we are pulling the right levers to foster growth and position Pearle Vision as an attractive franchise investment.”
In the past 12 months, new Pearle Vision EyeCare Centers have opened coast to coast with new franchisees in Bellevue, WA, 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.
A trio of area developer agreements in 2017 is 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.
