The Award Winning Fully Promoted Franchise
Since we first opened in 2000 as EmbroidMe, we have won awards and been featured on a number of lists describing the best business opportunities. Here are a few of the awards and accolades that we have received as EmbroidMe and Fully Promoted.
Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500
In 2014 and 2015, we were proud to be ranked #1 in our category on the prestigious Franchise 500 list that Entrepreneur Magazine puts out each year. Our over 300 locations worldwide demonstrate that we continue to work toward excellence as one of the best business opportunities.
Franchise Direct’s Top 100 Global Franchises
Another leading authority on franchise development, Franchise Direct, did a global study of the Top 100 Global Franchises, in which Fully Promoted was ranked #39 (we were ranked as EmbroidMe because this study occurred before our name change). Our regional offices all over the globe and our master license partners keep our brand strong on an international level.
Top 200 Franchise Systems
Franchise Times Magazine has repeatedly ranked our brand as one of the top franchise systems and best business opportunities. This ranking comes from their evaluation of our system-wide sales and global growth.
Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year
It’s not just our brand that has caught worldwide attention. Ray Titus, United Franchise Group’s CEO, is proud to have won the prestigious Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Florida. Ray was recognized because of his ingenuity and perseverance, which have contributed to his great success as CEO of one of the largest business-to-business franchise systems. Ernst & Young recognized Mr. Titus’s ability to find the best business opportunities and make them even better with his franchise system.
In honor of UFG’s achievements internationally, Ray Titus has also received the United States Department of Commerce’s “Presidential E” award, which is the highest honor that the U.S. federal government gives to American exporting companies. Signarama, our sister company, was the first ever franchise to win this award!
Governor’s Business Diversification Award
In 2011, the Florida governor awarded United Franchise Group the Governor’s Business Diversification award, recognizing the company’s outstanding contribution to the Florida economy.
Counselor Magazine has honored Ray Titus and the Fully Promoted brand with numerous awards. Mr. Titus was named Counselor’s International Person of the Year because of his brand’s extraordinary international growth. In addition, Fully Promoted has been listed on the Top 40 Promotional Product Distributor list several times, ranking as high as #19.
