Greg Helwig, Chief Development Officer for Kiddie Academy
In this challenging economy where there are six job seekers for every job opening, many would be surprised to learn that one viable option is to take your employment matters into your own hands by starting a franchise business. For those with an entrepreneurial spirit, starting your own business as part of a larger franchise operation offers the opportunity to take control of your destiny and forge your own path.
As for the type of business you decide to open, another positive factor is that inexperience in your chosen industry does not have to be a barrier to entry. There are a number of sectors poised for continued growth, from food service to fitness to child care.
