New Englanders Reap the Benefits of Franchising

One of the best things about owning a franchise is that you can easily apply both your life lessons and business knowledge in a new and exciting field.

This week’s Boston Globe had a fascinating profile of New Englanders who stumbled upon the franchise dream. There’s Trish Harrington who took her daughter to a birthday party at a Snipits and ended up buying her own children’s hair dressing franchise. Or Subway owner Mehran Atoufi who took customer service skills mastered from the hotel sector and put them to work to launch his own deli franchise.

“When you have increasing unemployment, a lot of people look at starting a business as a way to provide for themselves. Franchising is one aspect of entrepreneurship that people can try to help get their business off the ground,” Robert Nelson, district director for Massachusetts in the Small Business Administration, told the Globe.

No matter what your background in life and in business is, the odds are you will find the franchise for you out there somewhere. We’ve seen it so many times.
