Top Franchise Topics And Tips For 2012

(A view from The Crown)


2012 was quite an interesting year.

It was dominated by a lot of loud political discourse on blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and the like.

And, in-person political discussions were frequently of the “heated” variety.

In business, small business owners-including franchisors and some rather loud franchisees, jumped into the political fray…a lot.

Moving away from politics, the franchise industry had a pretty flat year as a whole, as the US economy continued to sputter along.

Some franchisors launched new products or new services. Some didn’t.

Some franchisors took advantage of hot trends, and were able to get some great PR in the process.

Below, is a recap of the past year’s topics and discussions…let’s see if you remember them.

One more thing: I’ve included a couple of useful tips for would-be franchisees, and even one for current franchisors.
