New franchise restaurants opening for food and QSR brands show ongoing expansion

You might think it's a time to be cautious, what with all the doom and gloom in the news. But for established brands with profitable businesses, it's business as usual. They are seizing the moment to grow, innovate and move forward!

You may have heard the stats about new franchise businesses having remarkably higher success rates than new independent businesses. 93% success rate in fact. And there's a reason for that. The established brand, processes, tried and tested methods and marketing messages, and all of the operational support that comes with a franchise, make it one of the most sound investments you can make.
