The forecast was prepared for the Association by economic analysis firm IHS Economics and Country Risk. The firm based its projection on 2013 numbers that showed the number of franchise establishments increased 1.4 percent and their output rose 4.3 percent in 2013. While modest, that pace put franchises ahead of non-franchise businesses in the same industries.
In 2014, the number of franchise businesses is expected to rise by 12,915, bringing the total to 770,368. That is a growth rate of 1.7 percent, and an improvement over the 1.4 percent growth in 2013. "Franchising is great if you want a business in a box, everything comes to you, soup to nuts — all of your marketing, everything down to even what carpet you want to use."
The franchise sector has seen significant growth over the last decade, thanks in part to the challenged economy that sent many job seekers into franchise ownership when they couldn't find more traditional employment.
