The UK’s No. 1 Franchise Directory for Over 15 Years

2015 Set to be a Brilliant Year for Entrepreneurs

The first month of 2015 is only just over, but already the rise of interest in the franchise industry shows that this year is going to be a buzzing one for people in the UK planning to start their own business. 

Franchise Direct UK, the internet's leading portal of franchises and business opportunities, has seen its previous website visitor records smashed. In January alone, over 11,000 enquiries were made by potential franchisees who examined the profiles of business opportunities for sale, liked what they saw, and decided to ask for more information free of charge.

"January is a time of year when people are making resolutions and thinking of starting new businesses," says Brian Rogan, Sales Manager for Franchise Direct UK. "And we are excited to see 2015 get off to such a good start."

This increase in investment and entrepreneurship is a reflection of the UK economy's strong growth over the past 15 months. The Office for National Statistics announced last week that the unemployment rate has fallen to just 5.8%, its lowest level for six years, while average earnings are continuing to rise. 

More people than ever have decided to become their own boss, and the fact that thousands are flocking to the Franchise Direct website confirms that they know investing in a franchise is the sensible and profitable way to do it.
