  • The Benefits of Franchising Franchising is a wonderful way to go into business for yourself - without being by yourself. You don’t have to be an expert at franchising or have industry experience. Because your growth affects the growth of the franchisor, you’ll find a team of dedicated professionals willing and able to support you every step of the way. With a franchise, you are awarded a package – product or service, brand name and trademarks, marketing and advertising, operations manuals and proven systems – along with thorough training in every aspect of the business. For that reason, Franchises are usually more successful. Only 2% to 4% of franchisees of a proven franchise concept fail, whereas 65% of new businesses fail within the first three years of operation*. This access to proven business procedures allows a franchisee to open quicker, experience success sooner, develop a customer base faster, have less risk and be more profitable. America invented the concept of franchising. This graph shows the significance of franchising to the US Economy**. *Source: **Source: Small Business Association Franchising as a % of US Retail Sales**
  • The Staffing Industry Today, staffing is one of the fastest growing industries in the country. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the staffing industry is expected to create more jobs than any other industry over the next ten years. As you can see from this graph, flexible staffing has grown rapidly during the past 16 years.* *Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics The staffing industry is taking an increasingly prominent role as a “labor market intermediary” between employers and employees. Over 90% of U.S. businesses use staffing services. For employers, staffing firms lower the costs of hiring by handling recruiting, screening, and testing. For employees, staffing firms provide income, flexible work assignments, and a bridge to permanent jobs. Industrial staffing makes up a significant part of the staffing workforce. Data from the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that the industrial sector employs more than one million people—more than 35% of all temporary and contract employees—making it the largest employer of the staffing sectors.
