Children's Franchise Industry Keeps Growing
-by Ed Teixeira
The old adage in business that "People will always spend money on kids and pets" is as true today as ever, especially when it comes to franchises geared to children. We reviewed children’s franchise programs over the past three years. The growth in the number of locations was strong in spite of the "Great Recession". In addition, approximately 20% of children’s franchises started after 2008 with a number of them having been in business for more than 5 years. This can be considered an indication of just how popular this franchise segment is.
