Press Release
: : 21 January, 2005


Action International has been ranked once again -- for the second consecutive year -- as the #1 Business Consulting Service Franchise, one of the Top 100 Franchises overall, and one of the Top 20 Homebased Franchises by Entrepreneur Magazine in their January 2005 Franchise 500 issue.

Action International is the world’s largest business coaching and training company with more than 560 franchisees in 19 countries around the globe. Action’s franchisees are certified business coaches who work with and educate owners of small to medium-sized businesses on how to improve the sales and marketing in their business.

This is the magazine’s 26th annual evaluation of the most successful franchises in all industries. “Franchise 500” winners were determined by their cumulative scores in: financial strength, stability, number of franchises, growth rate, years in operation, start-up costs, and company-provided financing.

A Golden Franchise Opportunity
In addition to helping small to medium-sized business owners grow worldwide, Action International offers opportunities for passionate, goal-oriented business professionals to reap the rewards of being a business coach, says Action’s Global CEO Vic Ciuffetelli.

“Being a franchisee of Action International has allowed me to apply my experience in managing a business to an environment where I can help others flourish,” said Marcie Hanhart, a franchised Action coach in Basking Ridge, NJ. “Action gave me a chance to go into business on my own, yet be a part of an international team of professional business experts. At the end of the day, I’m earning an income by helping other people reach their goals. That to me is the most fulfilling of any career imaginable.”

Initial investments for an Action International franchise (in the United States) ranges from $70,000 to $85,000, depending on location. That amount includes 10 days of training at Action International’s headquarters in Las Vegas. Additionally, franchisees receive ongoing training and complete access to the advice and coaching methods of Action International franchisees worldwide.

“Action franchisees are fulfilled professionally, intellectually, financially and spiritually,” Ciuffetelli said. “Every day, business owners invest in our franchisees and gain huge returns as they realize their goals. Action coaches truly serve a deep-rooted need in the business world. They feel good about themselves – and they should.”

The company was established in 1993 in Australia by a young visionary named Brad Sugars.

He developed a comprehensive system and methodology to assist business owners in achieving their goals and realizing their dreams with dramatic results. The company began franchising in 1997, and now has 560+ franchisees (Action Business Coaches), working in 19 countries around the globe.
