Play N Trade Franchise, Inc., one of the fastest-growing franchises worldwide, announced that it has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the "Top 10 New Franchises" for 2008, achieving the number nine ranking.

"We were named one of the "Top 50" new franchises in 2007 by Entrepreneur, and we are very proud of the fact that we have moved up to the top 10 in just one year," said Ron Simpson, founder of Play N Trade. This achievements are further validation of our compelling business model and the strength of the video game market. We offer entrepreneurs the best opportunity to be part of the fastest-growing sector in retail that continues to show strong upside and profitability.

"Our franchisee-based business model is the key to our continued growth and success," Simpson said. Our focus is on delivering comprehensive, continuous training and support to our franchisees. We believe this approach offers them the best of both worlds. They are backed by a strong corporate infrastructure while maintaining the flexibility that enables them to respond to their local markets and provide the ultimate customer experience for everyone who walks through their doors.

"At Play N Trade, it's a customer experience, not a corporate experience. That's the foundation of our culture, and the market has responded very positively. As one of the fastest growing interactive entertainment franchises in the world, we marked a major milestone with the opening of our 200th store in Charlotte, North Carolina, on September 12th 2008. Since opening its first store in 2000, the company experienced rapid growth nationally, with over 550 franchises sold . We should hit the 300th mark by January 1 2009 !

The 200th Play N Trade, is the third in the Charlotte area all owned by franchise operators Dave and Rhonda Tatanish. "Our success with Play N Trade can be attributed to three factors: brand, location, and planning," said Dave Tatanish. "Since Play N Trade is a well-established brand, we were able to focus on finding a location that would attract the optimum number of gamers - even in a crowded market like Charlotte - and executing a well-thought-out business and marketing plan."
