This new guide from Empowered Ezine says, “Buying one of the top franchises for 2014 could be a good idea for new entrepreneurs for a number of very good reasons. First of all, buying a franchise offers a tried and proven business model to follow. Often the hardest part of opening your own business is the trial and error process of finding out what works. With a franchise most of the guesswork is completely eliminated. Of course, new entrepreneurs will still need to thoroughly research any franchise opportunity that they are thinking of buying into to make sure that what the business offers, and how it is marketed, will go over well in their area. The following franchise ideas for 2014 serve to give a starting point for that research.”
The very first franchise business that the article looks at also happens to be the list-topper for Franchise 500’s ® 2014 list. This franchise business is Anytime Fitness. Empowered Ezine says, “What sets this gym franchise ahead of the rest is likely the company’s focus on the importance of people – both employees and clients. A lot is invested in training and life-skill building activities and getting fit is not seen as a job, but as a personal goal that clients should achieve for themselves. The company even reimburses clients and workers if they get the company’s logo as a tattoo to symbolize a personal achievement in their lives.”
The article also takes a look at three other franchises that potential franchisees can glean franchise business ideas for 2014 from. These three businesses are: Subway, Men in Kilts, and Internet Income University.
