What kinds of franchises do you think will become most popular on the Internet?
First of all, there are nearly 3,500 different franchisors in North America represented by over 800,000 units that span almost 100 business segments. The choices are astounding compared to even ten years ago. Naturally, the Internet has had a tremendous impact on industry growth in general, but “home based” service businesses have probably seen the greatest boom based on owner convenience and the low cost of entry. QSR (quick service restaurants) will most likely remain the king of franchise opportunities with their attendant brick and mortar investments, but today there is a franchise for every personality and virtually every pocketbook.
