About IRIS Environment Laboratories
IRIS Environmental Laboratories was founded in 2012 by Rod Eustaquio and Rick Eustaquio. Both brothers have decades of combined experience in mold and asbestos inspections and testing, public regulation, and business management. Since 2018, our company has been franchising the business across select states. IRIS franchisees operate mobile businesses that specialize in mold and asbestos inspections, testing, and clearance certification. We serve a diverse residential and commercial clientele, including homeowners, township officials, real estate agents, doctors, asbestos and mold remediation companies, and even U.S. military agencies.
About the 2022 Franchise 500 Rankings
Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 rankings in 2022 is a revealing look at how the U.S. economy changed over the past couple of years. The franchise industry managed to grow while facing waves of fear, abrupt change, false starts, and economic uncertainty. Today, there are more interest and ownership from new entrepreneurs than ever before, including women and Generation Z.
This year’s rankings also underscore significant growth and change in new franchise areas, including the home improvement and food delivery services. These trends could be the result of consumers spending more time at home and opting for healthy food services. Last but not least, there was also the emergence of quick-service categories, including ghost, poke, and salad kitchens.
Although there are more challenges ahead, the franchising industry showed that it is built for resilience. Both franchisors and franchisees are full of grit and innovation, and ready to tackle everything with their unwavering entrepreneurial spirit.
