Franchisees Come In All Ages

When we think of franchise owners, we often think of greying, middle-aged men who've set out in search of a second career. But franchising is such a varied and diverse world that these kinds of expectations are oftern wrong. In reality, franchisees come in all shapes, sizes and ages.

I was thinking of the incredible potential that comes with franchising when reading about one of America's most successful young franchisees. Samantha Goldsmith of Long Island is only 24-year-old, but she already owns seven Red Mango franchises. Seven. That's not so bad for a young woman. When you think of all of the out-of-work recent college graduates in America today, it's incredible to see what one young person can do with via franchising.

"It’s such a healthy brand and I always believe that the best man wins. We will have the best customer service possible and we value our customers greatly,” she told

Interestinly, Goldsmith plans to open 10 Red Mango locations. This is the kind of entrepreneurship that gets America going. The lesson to anyone looking for a new business opportunity today - whether you're just out of college, or have spent twenty years doing the same job - franchising can be your guide.
