Storm Guard was recently named to Franchise Business Review's second annual "Culture100" list.
The list recognizes the top 100 franchise brands in a 2021 report on the Best Franchise Cultures.
Founded in 2003, Storm Guard saw the demand for a company that specializes in roofing and construction.
As a single location in Minnesota, Storm Guard found itself traveling to help local communities that were devastated by natural disasters.
After responding to a hurricane in Florida in 2012, the founders saw the need for their services all over the country and decided to turn it into a franchise.
Today, Storm Guard has more than 35 franchise locations across 17 different states.
Storm Guard was among 224 franchise brands, representing nearly 25,000 franchise owners that participated in Franchise Business Review's research on the best franchise cultures.
Franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems. The brands that were selected received the highest overall ratings based on 12 questions specifically focused on leadership, core values, whether they enjoy being part of the organization, and would they recommend their franchise to others.
"The impact of the pandemic this past year on small businesses has put the spotlight on franchise culture more than ever," said Michelle Rowan, president and COO of Franchise Business Review. "Our research into hundreds of brands really shows which ones held up the best when rated by their franchise owners. The franchise companies that have the honor of being named to our Culture100 list are clearly among the best of the best franchise opportunities."
"We are incredibly proud of how strong the culture is at Storm Guard," Storm Guard President Shane Lynch added. "As with any company, the culture is carried out through the franchisees, which is why we look for people that are dedicated to helping their community rebuild after a disaster and to be a part of the Storm Guard family."
