March 06, 2017 // // WACO, Texas – Capitalizing on extensive recent system growth, including signing a record number of franchise agreements last year, Restoration 1® has earned its first ranking in the 2017 Fastest Growing Franchises List by Entrepreneur magazine. The company specializing in water, fire, smoke and mold remediation, was ranked #72 on the list.

Quickly making a name as one of the fastest-growing restoration franchises in the country, Restoration 1 also recently earned its highest ranking in the brand’s history on Entrepreneur’s prestigious Franchise 500 list when it jumped from #383 in 2016 to #96 in 2017.
