What Is Franchising?
The evolution of franchising can be traced back to the 1850s, but franchising as we understand it today started in the 1950s and has reached almost mythical stature over the last fifty years. A new franchise opens every 8 minutes of every business day and drives over 40% of all retail business. Annually, franchising accounts for over $1.5 Trillion in sales, and employs over 8 Million people. Franchises are the most successful businesses on the planet with over 95% success rate and at the same time creating over 170,000 new jobs per year.


Who Buys Franchises?
The majority of franchise buyers are success-oriented, educated, family minded, corporate people. As corporations switched their focus from employees to investors, they realized how expensive their senior level employee had become and they began down-sizing their mid and upper level managers to save money and improve investor stakes in their companies. This growing number of outstanding corporate managers are now the driving force behind franchising and represent a constant stream of qualified franchise buyers through Murphy offices.
