FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--Coverall Cleaning Concepts, a leader in the commercial cleaning industry, has again been named the fastest growing commercial cleaning franchise company by Entrepreneur magazine, as part of the magazine's "Entrepreneur 500" report. The Entrepreneur 500, the franchise industry's most widely respected ranking of top franchises, has now included Coverall for the 15th consecutive year.

"Coverall has clearly emerged as one of the premier commercial cleaning franchise organizations in the world," said Phil Kubec, president and CEO of Coverall Cleaning Concepts. "This strong finish simply reinforces what our franchisees and customers already know: that Coverall Cleaning Concepts offers the most capable and technically advanced commercial cleaning services in the world."

Ted Elliott, COO of Coverall, said the Entrepreneur500 ranking is only the beginning of what is anticipated to be a strong year for the company.

"We expect Coverall to sign an additional 1,680 new franchise owners in 2002," Elliott said. "Our goal is to continue to increase our penetration in the national account market. We believe these results are attainable, because Coverall is the forerunner coast-to-coast for customers looking for one-stop outsourcing of their janitorial and building maintenance needs."
