Z-CoiL Footwear

Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear® Ranks as
One of the Fastest Growing Franchises in the Nation
in Franchise Times’ Fast 55

Z-CoiLMinneapolis, MN, March 16, 2009 — Speeding along a growth curve in this economy is no sport for amateurs. It takes hard work, the right franchisees and a staff who knows where they’re going and how to get there.

Included in this year’s Franchise Times magazine’s Fast 55, a ranking of the fastest growing, young franchises in the nation, is
Z-Tech, Inc., an innovative footwear company based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Z-Tech, Inc. designs and manufactures Z-CoiL® Pain Relief Footwear®, shoes specially engineered to relieve foot, leg, and back pain. The company’s rapidly expanding distributor network is dedicated to changing people’s lives by relieving their pain and restoring their mobility.

This is the sixth year Franchise Times, the news and information source for franchising, has published the Fast 55. The list—compiled by FRANdata, a Washington, D.C.-based, research company that analyzes franchise information and data—focuses on companies that have only been franchising in the last five years. At the same time, these companies’ growth rate has been off the chart. For instance, the No. 1 company, Healthsource Chiropractic, had a 2,185 percent increase in units from 2002 to 2007. Z-CoiL’s growth rate in the same period was 488%.

In this year’s list there were 17 industries and 40 sectors represented.
