Small business is coming back in America. The recession has begun to bottom out and opportunities for business growth are brimming throughout the franchise industry. With unemployment realistically being around 25-30% in the U.S., most Americans only have serious income opportunities through small business ownership.
Why has franchising worked so well in 2011?
Franchisors have adjusted business models to account for the new modern marketplace, franchisees benefit from this experience and proven business acumen that franchisors deliver through the franchise relationship.
Franchisees have a new passion for building their business. With the movement away from bureaucratic thinking and BIG company mindset, people are ready to produce.
Technology and leverage systems are more effective today than in previous markets. With more and more integrated franchise systems using web-based tools and software franchise relationships make more sense than ever.
Forward thinking companies and individuals understand that now is the time to expand, assets are cheap and human resources are abundant.
