Security and growth in a post-COVID world

Ray Hays, managing partner at FranLaunch USA, has penned an article for Global Franchise detailing how certain franchise industries, such as security-related concepts, are still seeing strong demand throughout the COVID-19 crisis.

“The security sector, in general, is fragmented into various products and services segments, but its future looks bright,” writes Hays. “A review of the FDDs of the U.S. security franchisors shows solid franchisor expansion and healthy unit-level financial performance. In short, it’s an upward trending market.”

Our focus has been to preserve our strong balance sheet by aggressively reducing operating expenses and preserving cash, including suspending our quarterly dividend and share repurchase programs,” said Dave Hoffman, Dunkin’ Brands CEO. “Simultaneously, our management team and Board of Directors are voluntarily taking salary and fee reductions with the savings generated going to the Dunkin’ Brands Family Fund, which supports Dunkin’ and Baskin-Robbins crew members in times of crisis.”
