Cartridge World has been named one of the top 100 franchises by US-based Entrepreneur magazine's annual listing, Franchise 500. Cartridge World claims it has been listed among the top franchises for the past 6 years.

It also affirmed it ranked Number One in its category and believes the achievement will make it more competitive in the printing and office supply industry. Cartridge World noted that its customer service kept it on the list for the past 6 years.

According to Cartridge World, its first store was opened in the US 10 years ago. In addition to nearly 600 shops in North America and over 1,400 retail locations around the world, the firm said it is looking to add stores in the US. William Swanson (pictured), North American CEO and Global CFO of Cartridge World, added, “We’re adding new products and services to U.S. Cartridge World stores to capture more of the global $80 billion ink and toner business.”

Rod Young, Global CEO of Cartridge World told Recycling Times Media, “I want the industry to know Cartridge World is in growth mode. People are the core part of our strategy, and we want to attract more entrepreneurial organisations from around the world that see the opportunities in this $80 billion, vibrant and interesting global market.” Watch the full Recycling Times interview with Rod Young at
