Statistics prove that you are much more likely to succeed when you own a franchise compared to when you start a business on your own! In fact, in 2008, the Small Business Administration reported that 30 percent of small businesses fail within the first two years and 50 percent fail within the first five years. The IFA indicates the termination rates over the last 20 years in the franchise industry have averaged around 7 to 9 percent. In periods of economic recession the turnover rates are slightly higher and in periods of economic expansion the rates are slightly lower. But in general, this indicates that over time, on the whole, franchise businesses have a much higher business continuation rate than non-franchise businesses.
