Recessions can be difficult for many businesses and industries. Franchise systems are one of the exceptions by offering the opportunity to become your own boss. There is great satisfaction in knowing that when you make more, you keep more. Starting a franchise means you’re properly compensated for your time and efforts and can achieve stability with business ownership.
Franchise systems are also a great way to build a business legacy. We help our franchise owners grow their businesses over time and include ways to move up through multi-unit ownership, area developers, and master licensees. When our owners are ready to retire, their children have a lasting opportunity to take over and run the business.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) helped offset some small business expenses, aiding hard-hit businesses to survive. And once businesses started reopening, customers returned. Restaurants were able to switch over to more takeout and dining options while keeping customers safe.
