  • Franchise Consulting- A Recession-Proof Business That Thrives in Any Economy

    FranchiseHelp - Mon, Nov 4, 2013 9:39 AM EST

      Despite the fact that the country continues to be mired in an economic downturn, FranServe founder and president Tim Bleakley finds himself in the enviable position of operating a business that continues to thrive. Mike Reis, one of the people who operate their own franchise consulting business by utilizing the FranServe system, has seen tremendous growth in this industry.  “In the last five years alone, the percent of franchise buyers who have used franchise consultants has grown from 5% to 39%. " “Also, this is also one of the businesses that performs even better in a struggling economy”, Tim Bleakley explains.  “When people are downsized, they are forced to look for other options.  Many of these people gravitate to franchises because of the proven systems, the high success rates, and the extensive training and support programs.  Plus, since we work with a higher level of clientele, those that need financing are easily able to obtain it, especially because we work directly with companies that provide business loans and companies that help our clients access their 401K funds without penalties." “Also, when other industries, like real estate, trend lower, investors buy "absentee" franchises, where they can hire a manager and they don't need to be active owners.  They do this to achieve better returns on their investments and to diversify their portfolios.  Of course, when the economy improves and there is more capital available, there are always people who want to get into their own businesses, so franchise consulting has a consistent flow of business.  It is not seasonal or cyclical, like real estate or tax services.” Mike Reis shares that “I have been a franchise consultant for over 8 years, and I have experienced consistent growth in my business.  It has been my most profitable, most flexible and most rewarding business." The Leader in a Flourishing Industry Although the franchise consulting industry as a whole is experiencing significant growth, it’s FranServe’s commitment to excellence that’s makes it the most successful franchise consulting company in the industry.
