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).”

From Athlete To Entrepreneur: Exploring The Process

Process is the fuel that energizes progress. Yet many entrepreneurs view process as a dirty word reserved for General Electric and Six Sigma classes. When a fledgling business has no structure in place to manage common business issues and conflicts, the entrepreneur is left to plug the holes with whatever is on hand.

Your “go to” strategy is to plug your fingers and toes into as many holes as you can, as fast as you can. If the day’s crises are particularly bad, you might need your tongue or an elbow. After all, we entrepreneurs are pretty resourceful. You may slow the tide for a day, but it’s very likely that more holes will show up tomorrow—more than you can manage with your extremities.

In 1998, Zwicky began developing the online version of its stores on its own as a separate business model, and later developed a full-service online marketing agency specializing in SEO.
