Which industry best describes your business interests?
Not surprisingly food came out as the most popular industry on the Franchise Direct site. The food franchise industry is the most developed of all franchise industries, and plays host to such recognisable brands as McDonald’s, Subway and Burger King to name but a few. However, food franchises are not alone at the top, as business to business franchises come in a close second.
Offering a variety of business models, b2b franchisees provide valuable services to other businesses in their operating territories. Also appearing in the top five industries are retail franchises (23.5%), internet/online business franchises (19.3%) and computer franchises (18.2%).
