Dental Fix Rx was recently named by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the top home-based, mobile franchises in the nation. Ranking No. 77, the mobile dental equipment repair franchise is featured in the publication’s April 2016 issue.
The magazine’s Top Home-Based, Mobile Franchises list is based off its annual Franchise 500® rankings, which ranked Dental Fix Rx at No. 268. The Franchise 500 is noted as the world’s first, best and most comprehensive ranking of the top franchise opportunities in the United States. It recognized Dental Fix Rx for its exceptional performance in areas such as financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the franchise system.
“There’s a huge unmet and constant need within the dental community for the services we provide. This, coupled with the fact that we have little to no competition, has poised Dental Fix Rx for continued, fast-pace growth,” said Dental Fix Rx EVP of Business Development, Scott Mortier.
Dental Fix Rx is the only mobile franchise specialized in dental equipment repair services. In the past quarter, the company has signed 15 franchise agreements, bringing its total unit count up to nearly 250 franchises that operate in 37 U.S. states & three Canadian provinces and service more than 17,000 customers. On average, Dental Fix Rx has sold and opened a new unit every week for the past 35 months, and adds around 1,000 new customers every quarter. The company expects to sign more than 75 new franchise agreements in 2016 and to sell all of its U.S. territories within the next three years.
Mortier added, “Our franchisees come from all walks of life. What’s great about Dental Fix Rx is that we provide all the training and ongoing support necessary to be successful.”
The Dental Fix Rx corporate team provides all franchisees an intensive eight-week training program, as well as centralized technological and account management services. By handling the majority of the back-end office support, franchise owners are able to solely focus on servicing customers. The company is also one of the only franchises to offer a franchise guarantee – refunding the franchise fee if new owners do not service 40 clients within his or her first year of business. Dental Fix Rx additionally does not require franchisees to pay royalty fees.
