According to the International Finance Association, franchised businesses continue to grow at a rapid pace. Over 400,000 franchised businesses now employ nearly 10 million people with a payroll of $230 billion. Every year, thousands of individuals choose to get into business ownership via franchising. A franchise offers a path to be in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

Franchises can be a great path for people seeking to start a business, but wanting use a proven concept that has already been tested. A franchise helps to lower the risk of business ownership as other have developed the system and found out what works and what doesn’t.  If you want to be an entrepreneur and build the business from your own ideas, then start a business yourself. If not, consider finding a franchise that is right for you!  I recently wrote an article in Qualified Remodeler magazine about how to select a franchise opportunity that is right for you.  I invite you to check it out in the attached link.
