“This is a great honor and serves as a testament to all the hard work we’ve been doing to create a company that is unique in the way it operates and supports its franchise brands,” said Allan Young, founder and CEO of Noble Brands. “What began as a rapidly growing Glide-Out™ shelving company evolved into the need to become a franchisor that was equally as progressive and growth-oriented.”
Driving the growth of Noble Brands is its flagship franchise concept ShelfGenie, which has been a leading provider of custom-designed Glide-Out shelving since 2000. The company has grown to 50 franchisees that serve 160 territories in the U.S. and Canada and earned such accolades at the Inc. 5000 and Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500. The brand reported annual revenue in 2015 of $27 million, up 20 percent from the previous year and is ramping up its U.S. expansion behind the unveiling of a new content-driven website.
