United Country
® Real Estate Named
To Entrepreneur’s 29th Annual Franchise 500

January 1, 2008 - KANSAS CITY, MO - Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking, has recognized United Country® Real Estate among its 2008 list of top franchises.

United Country® achieved the No. 101 overall ranking on the Franchise 500® list, as well as securing top rankings in three separate sub-category lists, including the No. 23 ranking in the Low Cost Franchise category, the No. 47 position for Fastest Growing Franchise and the No. 95 ranking for America’s Top Global Franchise.

“This recognition further illustrates the value of United Country®’s unique approach to serving our franchisee partners and providing advanced real estate marketing systems that differentiate our local franchise offices in their markets. We are honored to be included in this prestigious study,” said Dan Duffy, CEO.

This honor follows United Country®’s inclusion on the Wall Street Journal’s 2006 list of “Top 25 High Performers,” a study of more than 2,500 U.S. based franchise systems.

Entrepreneur magazine has been conducting the Franchise 500® study since 1980. All companies, regardless of size, are judged by the same criteria: objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. The objective factors are plugged into the exclusive Franchise 500® formula, with each eligible company receiving a cumulative score. The 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the official Franchise 500®, identifying today’s top franchise opportunities.
