A major issue that the majority of restaurants are dealing with is slowing sales from stagnant consumer spending. This is because of the lingering effects of the credit crisis on household incomes has caused most families to cut back on their expenditures. One of the first areas that have seen the largest reductions were in discretionary spending on items purchased at: fast food restaurants and convenience stores. This is having an adverse effect on the profit margins for a number of large franchises such as: Subway, 7-Eleven, Quiznos, Denny’s, Sizzlers and Bennigan’s just to name a few.
In the majority of cases, franchise owners are receiving less assistance from their parent organizations in making their businesses work. This can create even more challenges on the individual store level, as the owner has to deal with the regular issues associated with running the restaurant or convenience store. Then, they have to somehow be able to compensate for the lack of support that is being received from company headquarters. The combination of these two factors can create a situation where many franchises have been forced to close. To prevent this from happening requires utilizing strategies and tools that will deal with these issues.
