From June 2013, 27,910 new jobs attributed to development throughout the U.S. franchise industry were tallied up by ADP and Moody Analytics Inc, a figure up from 19,160 in May. This figure deals with private sector jobs and focuses in on the franchise industry to provide a clearer picture of how franchises support economic activity throughout the country and beyond. Industries included in the report include restaurants, education, and auto franchises to name a few.
The importance of this report, which stems from its unique nature, being the only one of its kind, also stands out through its sourcing: collective ADP transactional payroll data, compiled anonymously across the U.S. and obtained through the nearly half million private sector employers who use ADP for payroll processing each month. The ADP National Franchise Report includes findings that give an extensive breakdown of key franchise industries experiencing changes, with attention given to differences when compared to previous months. A six month average is also offered and indications within the report point to which areas of franchising may be experiencing exceptional growth by way of employment.
The focus of the report is on employment trends as they concern the franchise industry, and are made available for existing or potential franchise professionals to get an idea of how the franchise industry in various sectors is affecting the overall U.S. economy. For those potential franchisees interested in investing with a franchise system, the report offers insight as to how hiring is occurring. These statistics can indicate certain factors, such as which segments of franchising may be experiencing noteworthy growth, or sectors that are changing due to certain constraints over a period of time made evident month to month.
