In October, franchises created 30,100 jobs. Although the number of jobs created was lower for November, it still stands at a healthy 24,600. The fact that franchise hires are growing is an indicator of the opportunities this segment provides. Especially for first time and small entrepreneurs looking to start their own business.

Franchising and Small Business

Franchising is one of the best ways for first-time entrepreneurs to get their feet wet as business owners. This is because they allow new entrepreneurs to start and learn how to run a business from the get-go.

Everything from operations to hiring, purchasing, marketing, advertising, and finances are part of a process. By simply following this process you can run a franchise without too many hiccups. And if you do need help, the franchisee is there to lend a hand. And with many franchises available under and over $10K, there are huge opportunities. As the ADP National Franchise Report shows, more people are taking advantage of these opportunities and hiring people.

The Franchise Report

The total of 24,600 jobs for November comes mostly from restaurants. This industry generated 15,100, which was followed by auto parts and dealers with 7,700 jobs. Accommodations, food retailers, and real estate came in with 400, 200 and 100 jobs respectively.
