Those who are planning to buy into a franchise this year can greatly benefit by looking at Empowered Ezine’s picks for the top 10 franchises in 2014. EmpoweredEzine.com is an online article directory where online marketers, entrepreneurs and business owners can share information and learn from some of the industry’s top professionals. The website’s motto “Where knowledge equals power” sums up the goal of the articles posted on the site. 2014 will open windows of opportunity for many new business owners and Empowered Ezine strives to ensure that those starting a business in the year ahead are prepared with the right information. By looking at the franchise business ideas in the recent article, potential franchise owners can enhance their current knowledge and be well on their way to choosing the best franchise business for their needs.
The new article by Empowered Ezine says, “Every year, Entrepreneur.com puts out a list of the 500 best franchises based on statistical and financial data, this year ranging from July 2011 to July 2013. While getting a top spot on this list does not necessarily mean that a franchise is the best option for new franchisees, taking a look at the top 10 franchises 2014 lists as the best can help potential franchise owners figure out which business opportunities have the most possibility for growth and success in the coming year. If you are thinking of buying a franchise, this list might contain the perfect opportunity for you, or at least give you some ideas when looking for a more ideal business for your situation.”
Empowered Ezine goes on to explain that list of the top 10 franchises for 2014 is as follows:
1. Anytime Fitness
2. Hampton Hotels
5. Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches
6. 7-Eleven Inc.
8. Denny’s Inc.
9. Pizza Hut Inc.
10. Dunkin’ Donuts
The article goes on to break down the above list into four separate categories: Food/restaurant, self-improvement/fitness, restoration/cleaning, and accommodations/hotels. These four types of businesses do especially well under the franchise model because these are all areas where the reliability of the brand is key. While starting a totally new business in any of these categories may yield great results, a restaurant, for example, that everyone is familiar with and which they know to have good food at reasonable prices is much more likely to be successful, simply due to the brand recognition.
The franchise guide ends by saying, “Another good franchise category not listed here is online franchises. There are online franchises that offer all sorts of online and offline services. One online business that has a very good return on investment, if done properly, is online affiliate marketing. Internet Income University, which is a free online marketing training website, also offers a turnkey online affiliate marketing business for those who are interested. A plus for this business is that you can learn how to promote any online or offline venture you have once you learn the skills necessary for successful online affiliate marketing. Of course, those who are thinking of buying a franchise need to do their own research and thoroughly look into any business venture they are considering getting into. The top franchise ideas for 2014 listed here may not be the most ideal choice for everybody’s specific situations, but taking a look at them can be a starting point for further inquiries.”
