Franchise Outlook 2013

The franchise sector is still on the rise this year. In 2012, franchise growth was about 1.5%, this year the estimate is 1.4%. The market may not have huge growth, but there are plenty of opportunities for prospective franchisees.

According to the IFA the franchise industry is expected to add 162,000 jobs this year, which is a 2% increase from 2012.

There are a few issues that concern business owners, franchisors and franchisees this year. One of those issues is healthcare and the new Affordable Care Act. While this can cause job cuts in some sectors, it brings many opportunities in the home care industry. Home care franchises have seen a lot of growth, and with the aging of baby boomers, it does not seem to be slowing down.
