The franchise sector is expected to contribute about 3% of the nation’s GDP in nominal dollars in 2018, and it is predicted that the franchise sector employment growth will outpace the rest of the economy.

But what is a franchise?

A franchise is an opportunity to own and operate an independent business utilizing a recognized brand name with a system and framework for operating such a business. Franchises take advantage of the support and programs offered by a franchisor.

Why Invest In A Franchise?

Starting a business on your own certainly has its pros and cons. However, according to Entrepreneur Magazine, statistics show that 25 percent of start-up’s fail within their first year, 50 percent of the remaining fail within five years and approximately only 30 percent of the remaining last ten years. Whereby the purchase of a Franchise with an established brand and system may help to reduce the risks of a business start-up.
