The number of entrepreneurs who have become convinced of the advantages of buying a franchise is on the upswing in 2012, and that’s big news. Franchising, as we at Padgett have pointed out before, offers many advantages to those who are ready to start a business of their own, but the franchising industry as a whole hasn’t been exempt from the economic difficulties of the last few years.
This year, however, the number of people signing on to franchise opportunities is predicted to rise by almost 2 percent, a stark reversal of recent trends. Why the turnaround? In part it’s because some members of one of the largest and most influential segments of our society – the baby boom generation – have been drawn to the idea of franchising. Mid-life career changers and semi-retired boomers who have worked for corporations are trying out something new by becoming franchise owners. In parts of the country that tend to draw retirees, such as Florida, Texas and Arizona, this trend is especially pronounced.
If you’ve had a career in accounting or bookkeeping, but have come to a point in your life where you want to work for yourself, consider opening a Padgett small business accounting franchise.
