We are always looking for new ways to understand the arc of franchise success. Franchise Direct's top-notch multimedia team have created an excellent chart that provides a new vision of the last decade of franchising.
Our exciting new chart features seven franchises: Bumper Man, Dairy Queen, Econo Lube N Tube, Golf Etc, Jimmy Johns, Moes, and Mrs. Field. Basically we have taken the statistics concerning the number of units each franchised has opened and closed from 2000 to 2008. But we have employed fun and hi-tech motion graphing that allows you to watch the evolution of each franchise evolve before your eyes.
It's both fun to use and incredibly informative. The information can be viewed via circles, bars or lines and its funky look is really fun to watch. At the same time, anyone looking to assess a long term arc of one of these franchises - or any franchise - for that matter, can take a lot from this chart. Enjoy.
