Buying into a franchise business is one of the better ways for a new business owner to up their chances of success. With a proven business model, brand recognition, and ongoing support from the franchisor, opting for a franchise takes much of the guess work out of starting a new business. However, not all franchises are created equal. Those who are thinking of becoming franchise owners should realize that choosing the right franchise is one of the most important decisions that they will make early on in their new careers as franchisees. EmpoweredEzine.com’s new guide to the top 10 franchise businesses for 2014 can help to show potential franchise owners what contributes to success in a franchise business.
This new article from 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 then lists the top franchises for 2014 (according to the Franchise 500 ® list) as:
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
Empowered Ezine notes that these ten franchise business for 2014 fall into four major business categories: food, self-improvement, cleaning services and accommodations. Food seems to be the most popular franchise category, and for good reason: when people are hungry they do not want to worry about if the food will taste horrible or be way out of their budget range. Restaurant chains offer consistency, and as can be seen in the list above, this is something that has been working out very well for food franchises.
The other categories are popular for the same reason – when someone goes for a haircut they want to know that the scissors near their ears are in good hands; when obtaining cleaning services, people want professionalism and no surprises when it comes to the price; and when people go to a hotel they want to know what they can expect in terms of cleanliness and services.
The article takes a closer look at each of these franchise business categories, and ends by saying, “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.”
