Learning from the legacy concepts of today, the next wave of trendsetting concepts are redefining the franchise landscape of the future.
Franchising has been a successful business model for almost a century, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for a brand-new concept to come along and completely reinvent the way we view this dynamic industry. In fact, some of the most exciting, emerging businesses came from times of hardship.
This can be for a multitude of reasons; one of which is that more and more innovative thinkers are turning to franchising to create a work-life balance for themselves that is on their own terms. The standard nine-to-five just isn’t working for everybody anymore, and some of the world’s most creative, fresh franchise brands are showcasing a lifestyle that’s becoming increasingly attractive to the next generation of investors.
To prove this point, we’ve collated 14 franchise brands that fall under the ‘emerging’ banner. For our criteria, this means brands that began franchising no earlier than 2015, and have either expanded into an international market beyond their domestic home ground or announced firm plans to do so.
So whether you’re looking to partner with a boutique boxing brand, or want to start a coding school for the most tech-savvy kids, then we’ve got you covered. Any kind of idea or experience can be a thriving franchise – it just needs passionate leaders, a honed business plan, and an engaged consumer base.
