This originally appeared on supportingstartegiesfranchise.com

Beverly, MA – Supporting Strategies, a provider of outsourced bookkeeping services, controller services and operational support, has announced the opening of its 100th location, Greater Cincinnati Ohio owned by Managing Director Craig Feltner.

The company reached this milestone just seven years after launching its franchise model.

"We have added franchises on a steady basis since 2013 and now have a presence in 30 states," said Leslie Jorgensen, Supporting Strategies Founder and CEO. "The strong response to our franchising opportunity has been gratifying to see, as has the success of our family of franchisees."

According to a story by the Franchise Performance Group, only 18% of the 3,800 franchise brands in the United States have more than 100 units or territories.

"Early on, we made a real effort to find out what worked, and what didn't work, for our initial franchisees," said Steve Schultz, Chief Evangelist & VP of Franchise Development at Supporting Strategies. "We've applied those lessons learned and focused on giving our new franchise partners the insights, strategies and resources they need to become successful."

Supporting Strategies has earned the Franchise Satisfaction Award from Franchise Business Review for five years running. Since 2017 Supporting Strategies has also placed on the publication's lists of Best Franchises for Women, Top Low-Cost Franchises, Top Franchises for Veterans, Top Innovative Franchises and Top Service Franchises.

Last year, Entrepreneur magazine included Supporting Strategies on its Fastest-Growing Franchises list for the first time.
