Toronto, Canada, August 13, 2007 --(PR.com)-- Europe’s leading business franchise directory, Franchise Europe has ranked WSI in the Number 1 spot under the Computer, Electronic and Internet Services category of their Top 500 Franchises list. Also making it into the coveted Top 100 franchises listed by Franchise Europe, WSI adds another notch to its decade long reign of leading Internet services franchises.
The company has held this Number 1 spot in North American Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 listing for 6 years in a row. It was also featured recently by another leading US based industry business publication Success Magazine in its ranking of “Top Ten Franchises We Love”. Ron McArthur, president WSI says, “We are very proud of what WSI as a team has been able to accomplish in the last year. All our efforts and initiatives are geared towards ensuring the success and profitability of our franchise network. We continually hear the success stories from our franchisees in the field, but it's exhilarating when the world recognizes the great progress we've made as well.” He further adds, “Our ranking as #42 in Entrepreneur Magazine's Annual Franchise 500 issue this year was exciting enough. That was followed by featuring in Success Magazine’s Top Ten ranking. Earning the Number 1 position in Franchise Europe’s listing as well is now the real icing on the cake for us. Needless to say, it also encourages us to aim higher and strive further towards our vision of being the world’s number 1 provider of Internet solutions to small and medium sized businesses.” The WSI network is spread across 87 countries with over 1500 WSI Internet Consultants serving the needs of the dynamic and growing global SME market.
