D&B #1 Financial Strength Franchise

By Franchise News

2011 AllBusiness AllStar FranchisesAire-Master’s commercial hygiene and odor control service has boasted a high financial strength rank for three consecutive years on Dun & Bradstreet’s Top 300 Franchises. In 2011, Aire-Master’s financial strength rank reached #1. This rank appears on D&B’s AllBusiness Allstar franchises.

D&B Financial Strength Rank

Each year, the AllBusiness Allstar franchise rank weights and combines Dun & Bradstreet’s predictive Commercial Credit and Financial Stress Scores into an overall financial strength rank, which receives a strong weighting in our overall rank. Keep in mind that this is a comparison ranking, so winners that scored low only scored low out of our pool of 300 and may still be strong financially. The score uses the full range of D&B information, including financials, comparative financial rations, payment trends, public filings, demographic data, and more. Of the two scores, D&B weights the Financial Stress Score more heavily.

Aire-Master has been named as the #1 Restroom Maintenance Service Franchise in 2011 by Entrepreneur Magazine and ranked #237 on their 32nd Annual Franchise 500®. This is the 5th time that Aire-Master has ranked #1 in this category.

Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 was the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Now in its 32nd year, Entrepreneur used the financial and statistical data from July 2008 through July 2010 to compile the 2011 rankings. All franchise companies are judged on the same criteria:  objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system, number of years in business, length of time franchising, startup costs, litigation, percentage of terminations and financing options.

Fragrance Evaporation

By Fragrance

All fragrances go through an evaporation process and lose strength over time. What most people don’t know, however, is that the character of the fragrance will change as it evaporates. That’s because the various essential oils and aromatics, or “notes”, that make up the fragrance evaporate at different rates:

Stages of Evaporation

Top Notes

Top notes are the most volatile oils. They provide a strong initial impact and evaporate quickly. Citrus oils tend to be top notes. Some fruits are also top notes.

Middle Notes

Middle notes are less volatile. They are not as strong at first, but they take longer to evaporate. Middle notes remain detectable in the air — longer than top notes. Florals tend to be middle notes, as well as some fruits and spices.

Base Notes

Base notes are the least volatile and longest lasting. They are subtle, yet steady aromas that linger through the end of the fragrance life. Base note oils are mostly woods and some spices.

Making a fragrance “stronger” doesn’t mean it will last longer, because that usually means including more top notes. The goal is to include a variety of notes, so that as the top notes fade away, the middle notes and base notes take over, extending the life of the fragrance. This also adds depth and richness to the fragrance, further enhancing your image of quality.
