Franchises Making a Comeback

Franchises are on the rise as more Americans Look to Entrepreneurship To Boost the Economy


Loves Park, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2012 -- Champion Media Worldwide today announced that franchising is a key element to rebuilding our economy. According to Pricewaterhouse franchised small businesses generated more jobs between 2001 and 2005 than several of the nation's major economic sectors. The economic impact of franchising goes beyond activities inside franchised businesses, because their purchases of products and services and the personal purchases of their owners and workers contribute to the growth of non franchised businesses.

"This spillover can mean millions in our community and cities across the country," says Robert Smith, CEO of in Loves Park, IL.

Now is the best time to look into franchising.
