For the second year in a row, Parisi Speed School cracked Entrepreneur Magazine’s list of the Top 500 Franchises in the country. After coming in at #439 in 2016, Parisi rose 48 spots in 2017, to #391.
“We are extremely honored to be named to Entrepreneur’s list again for 2017,” said Dr. Paul Staples, CEO of Parisi Franchise Systems, “Over the past 12-months, we have seen a tremendous amount of growth in terms of our numbers not only with new franchisees, but current members of our network adding second locations.”
Most of that is due to the number of new initiatives launched by Parisi this year… making it even more attractive to potential owners.
On the youth sports performance side of things, Parisi launched Centers for Standardized Athletic Testing at three locations. The goal of these centers are to provide training and recruiting education to high school athletes, in conjunction with strategic partners NCSA Athletic Recruiting, Zybek Sports and BoxCommand. Parisi also reached an agreement with USA Football to provide speed training content to their athletes.
In terms of franchising, Parisi began offering additional business models to cater to the various interests of potential owners, as well as new business resources that make running a Speed School even more turn-key.
“Our rise in the Franchise 500 list this year shows that the Parisi Speed School business opportunity is one that can not only provide a new career path for someone, but more importantly, allow them to truly make a difference in the lives of youth in their community,” stated Staples.
