- Leading Bathroom Remodeling Franchise Celebrates CEO as an Ambitious Leader Building an Industry Leading Brand -

PHOENIX -- Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) announces Brad Hillier, CEO of Re-Bath, the nation's largest complete bathroom remodeling company, has been named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 Pacific Southwest Award finalist. Now in its 37th year, Entrepreneur Of The Year is one of the preeminent competitive business awards for transformative entrepreneurs and high-growth companies who are building a more equitable, sustainable, and prosperous world for all.

Hillier was selected by an independent panel of judges. Entrepreneurs were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirt, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

"It is an honor to be recognized as a finalist for this prestigious award," said Hiller. "At Re-Bath, we are constantly pushing the boundaries of innovation to deliver exceptional bathroom solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers. This recognition is a testament to the incredible work of our team and our shared commitment to growth and progress. We remain dedicated to driving the future of our industry by delivering cutting-edge products, fostering a culture of innovation, and empowering our franchisees and customers."

Under Hillier's leadership, Re-Bath has achieved impressive growth marks as he continues to lead with a results-forward approach. With large retail partnerships contributing to overall brand strength, Re-Bath aims to award 25 franchisees in 2023 that will grow unit count to 149.

Large retail partnerships have proven successful for Re-Bath's overall growth and market share gains, driving nearly a 31% year-over-year increase in systemwide franchise installed sales. In 2022, Re-Bath gained another big-box retail partner in the home improvement space. Not only are these partnerships with top-tier retailers helping to elevate brand awareness, but they are also contributing to franchisee's bottom line, making Re-Bath's franchise opportunity an attractive investment.

Per Re-Bath's Franchise Disclosure Document, franchisees that opened prior to 2020 had average revenues of $4.9M in 2022*.

Re-Bath is riding a wave of momentum as Hillier seeks to double the business in the next four years, inching closer to the goal of becoming a billion-dollar-company. Key to achieving this milestone will be the TZP Group acquisition, a strategic continued focus on partnering with exceptional franchisees, strengthening world-class corporate support, and enhancing the customer-service experience with new technology and innovation. Combined, these efforts will help propel Re-Bath to a household name across the country.

The success achieved by Re-Bath has not gone unnoticed, ranking No. 2 on Qualified Remodeler's Top 500 Nationals List and was recognized by Entrepreneur's Franchise 500®, the world's first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Most recently, Re-Bath earned the No. 1 spot on Bob Vila's 2022 Best Home Improvement Contractors of 2022 Ranking for "Best Bathroom Renovations."

EY Regional award winners will be announced on June 16, 2023, during a special celebration. The winners will then be considered by the National judges for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards, which will be presented in November at the annual Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation's most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies. The Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner will then move on to compete for the World Entrepreneur Of The Year® Award in June 2024.

The Entrepreneur Of The Year program has recognized more than 11,000 entrepreneurs throughout the US since its inception in 1986, and it has grown to recognize business leaders across 145 cities in over 60 countries around the world.
