Doug Dwyer, President & CSO, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen™, responded to our request with the following statement:
Mr. Dwyer wrote:
While we respect Forbes’ attempt to help people considering franchise opportunities, we hope no one will rely on this list to guide their research. As a proxy for judging “best” and “worst,” Forbes relied on unit tallies from 2008 to 2012. The effect? Franchises that were focused on the real estate industry received low marks in spite of their resilience compared to the industry during the Great Recession, and other franchises received high marks in spite of regulatory changes since 2012 that create significant challenges for their business models.
During the Great Recession, excellence was a matter of survival for home services franchises like DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen, and we worked diligently to help remodelers survive in spite of a massive disruption in the housing market. You can read our franchisees’ stories on our blog. They don’t shy away from talking about the challenges they faced and how DreamMaker helped them survive — and how DreamMaker is now helping them prosper.
Our same store sales increased 23% in 2013, more than seven times as fast as the revenue growth of the remodeling industry overall, and the National Association of the Remodeling Industry recently highlighted DreamMaker for its excellence.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.
