Franchising is Much More Than Fast Food

There are so many myths about franchising that people believe to be true that actually are not true. The #1 franchising myth is franchising is basically just fast food. That is very far from true. There are actually over 3,000 franchise companies in 75 different industries, touching almost every aspect of our daily lives. The 800,000 franchise businesses in the US make a significant contribution to the country’s economy through sales and jobs for over 8.5 million people.¬†Franchising is booming.

There are even two basic business models: service-based, where the business comes to the customer and facility-based, where there is a store front and customers come in.

Listen to ExecuNet’s entrepreneurial coach Pete Gilfillan explain in less than three minutes how franchising is so much more than fast food and outline the two basic business models in greater detail.
