Pearle Vision Optical Store Franchise Lands on Franchise 500 List
Find out why Pearle Vision is the only optical store franchise on Entrepreneur magazine’s annual list
At Pearle Vision, we’re proud to be the only optical store franchise on the 2016 Entrepreneur Franchise 500, coming in at #115 and marking seven years in a row on the list.
“It’s a great validation of a business model centered on providing genuine eye care to our patients, while supporting our Licensed Operators in growing their businesses,” says Director of Business Development Mike Weaver. “We’re best-in-class in an industry that really strives to make a positive impact on people’s lives.”
A long history of excellence
This isn’t our first appearance on the Franchise 500 — in fact, we’ve been on the list 10 of the past 11 years. It’s part of a long tradition of patient-centered eye care, going back to 1961 when Dr. Stanley Pearle opened his first store.
Of course, our past matters because of what it means for our future, and the future at Pearle Vision is bright. To drive even better results for all of our Licensed Operators, we are focused on quality care, improving the topline and bottom-line performance of eye care centers and improving operations to boost customer satisfaction.
What makes us stand out
We’re the only optical retail franchise on the Franchise 500, but we’re not the only player in the optical industry — so what makes us stand out from all the others?
Our history is not just of excellence, but also innovation. Pearle Vision was one of the first stores to bring optometrists and opticians together under one roof, so patients could immediately go from their exam to picking out their new glasses*. This helps maintain an outstanding patient experience in the whole process, with high-quality services and products. Independent Doctors of Optometry offer full, comprehensive exams that go in-depth with a patient’s optical and overall eye health, and Pearle Vision offers stylish frames from some of the best brands in the industry.
Our innovations come on the operations side of the business, as well. Our new integrated supply chain makes tasks like inventory management much easier for our Licensed Operators, so you can focus on the patients first. That commitment to our patients is exactly what gets us on lists like the Franchise 500, and it ensures that we’ll continue to succeed.
