As our new timeline on Facebook shows, Franchise Direct has been connecting entrepreneurs to franchises since 1998. We've grown from strength to strength since we opened as a start-up in the late-'90s and now operate franchise opportunities websites in 10 countries. In compiling the timeline, we realized that we recently reached an exciting franchise milestone - our 2,000,000th franchise lead application was just filled out.
That's right, two million leads. It's a really exciting number for us. That's two million entrepreneurs reaching out via Franchise Direct to some of the world's top franchise brands. Two million franchise dreams made with franchise Direct.
Best of all from our perspective, this number shows that more entrepreneurs are turning to Franchise Direct for exciting franchise opportunities. We hit the 1,000,000 million lead mark back in 1998 which means it took ten years for Franchise Direct to reach our first million leads and only four years for us to reach our second million leads. At this rate, it won't be long until we reach three million leads!
All of this just proves how successful Franchise Direct is at lead generation. For franchises looking to reach a wider pool of prospective franchisees, Franchise Direct is a LEADing authority in lead generation. We deliver leads by the millions!
