Over the last two and a half years, the U.S. has seen some major changes to the landscape of the workplace. The shift has taken many members of the workforce from office jobs to self-employment. We may very well be witnessing the largest job migration since the Industrial Revolution. In the past three decades, the relationship between employer and employee has dwindled down to a strained relationship at best. Automation of tasks and large-scale layoffs have left employees with a sense of insecurity that has driven them to feel little loyalty to their employers. These changes in the climate of the workspace are largely responsible for the exodus we’ve been seeing from corporate America to franchise ownership.
Ever wonder if you’re cut out for the entrepreneurial life? One that would offer you the freedom and flexibility that comes with being your own boss? Now, more than ever, people across the U.S. are considering this very question. On the heels of an unprecedented shift in the workplace, employees across the country are reexamining their career choices, as well as their goals for the future. Through these transitional times, franchising has remained incredibly resilient – even amid economic headwinds. That’s why so many are choosing to strike it out on their own and open a business of their own through franchising.
Any new business owner will find themselves in need of a helping hand from time-to-time. It can be rather intimidating to start from the ground up in a brand new business -- whether you’re already familiar with the industry or not. One of the perks of franchising is that you aren’t alone in this endeavor. All franchises are built just a little bit differently than one another, but the hallmarks include the brand’s road map to success in the form of a proven business model to follow. Then, there’s the unwavering support from the brand to consider.
