In this economy, many recent college grads are turning toward franchising as a viable way to build a future and jump-start their business careers. Here are 1851’s top 10 franchises for future franchisees under the age of 30.
1) Soccer Shots

Additionally, Soccer Shots appeals to many demographics: Soccer Moms, Dads, entrepreneurs fetching lifestyle.

3) Wing Zone
Investment: $247,500 – $312,500

Why Young Franchise Prospects May Like It: When founder Matt Friedman and Adam Scott decided there was a void in chicken wing delivery concepts while attending school at the University of Florida, these two Gators saw opportunity in an untapped segment. Today, their model has evolved into drive-thru technology and beer and wine. The options and flexibility blended with flavor and the pure fact that they sell Buffalo chicken wings makes this a mouth-watering opportunity.
