The History Of Franchising, And Why Today It’s Easier Than Ever

Once upon a time, if you wanted to buy a franchise, you might have found an ad in the paper, like the one that appeared in a 1949 New York Times issue, which I recently found while combing through some online library newspaper archives.

“Do you have $10,000 to $20,000 to invest?” the headline blared in the classifieds. It continued: “We will set you up to operate a successful ladies cotton dress shop, on a franchise basis. Successful stores now operating in New York State, New Jersey and Long Island. You can locate the store in your own community, no experience necessary. Excellent opportunity to develop your own business and make a comfortable living. Write for appointment.”

Hard work is often lauded as the key American virtue that leads to success and opportunity. It has preoccupied the business world for years creating a divide and resulting in two camps: Hustle Nation vs. Ease & Flow.

On one side are entrepreneurs who grind. They put in long, arduous hours and focus on high-performance achievement, devoting themselves completely to their businesses.

How Franchising Builds Up Local Communities

Franchise locations help drive local economies, according to the 2016 Economic Impact of Franchised Businesses report: “Taking into account the indirect impact of franchised businesses, business format franchises support more than 13.2 million jobs, $1.6 trillion in economic output for the U.S. economy and 5.8 percent of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP).”
