The Diversity of Franchising

For those out there with the mistaken impression that franchising only means burgers and fries, we’ve got an interesting article for you to read.

The Dayton Daily News has penned an article about the inherent diversity of franchising. To illustrate their point, they’ve spoken with two former Handle With Care franchisees, who in their day shipped “World War II-era machine guns, motorcycles, an (empty) turn-of-the-century coffin and CARE packages.”

There’s barely anything that franchises won’t do. In fact, Alisa Harrisson of the IFA informed the paper that there are over 100 different kinds of businesses that are currently franchised.

With diversity like that, it’s no surprise that franchising continues to help drive the American economy.

BrightStar Healthcare Kelly Luers franchisee added this bit of advice for people ready to open their own franchise.

“Just because you’re part of a franchise doesn’t mean you don’t eat, live or breathe (the business).”
