When I penned “The 2020 Franchise Trends” earlier this year, little did I know that the #1 trend I predicted, delivery, would explode the way it has. Unfortunately, it comes with a cost.

That cost is COVID-19.

Covid-19 Update: You can now get vaccinated!


Coronavirus And Delivery

The Coronavirus (as of this writing) is taking an enormous amount of lives here in the U.S and around the world. It’s also changing our everyday lives in just about every way possible.

For example, businesses that are used to seeing billions of dollars in annual revenue are laying workers off.

In addition, small businesses, franchises included, are temporarily (hopefully) shutting down, or, in the case of fast food establishments, (which are deemed essential businesses) only open for drive-thru service, carry out and delivery.

But that’s not all of them.

There are several more fast food chains including Burger King®, that deliver food right to your door.

A question:

Are you getting your food delivered from franchise businesses near you, or are you getting complete meals delivered once a week?

Either way, fast food delivery from franchise businesses like Burger King, are becoming crazy-popular now, and will continue to be a go-to service this year and beyond. But it’s not just food that’s being delivered.


Product Delivery

It seems that everyone I know is running short of things like toilet paper, paper towels, and even bread. Who would have thunk it?

And since local grocery stores and drug stores can’t seem to keep those items in stock, consumers are forced to go online to order them with the hope they’ll be delivered in time. Crazy. Maybe we should have been more prepared.


How could we have?

It’s not like we were privy to the information our current President received waaaay back in January.

From The Independent:

Intelligence agencies ‘have been warning on this since January‘, said a US official who had access to intelligence reporting that was disseminated to members of congress and their staff as well as to officials in the Trump administration, and who, along with others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe sensitive information.

Donald Trump may not have been expecting this, but a lot of other people in the government were – they just couldn’t get him to do anything about it,’ this official said. ”The system was blinking red.’

In any case, we are where we are, right?

In delivery mode.

Joel is Highly Principled
There are many people in the franchise business who claim to to be experts in the field. Unfortunately many of them lack both knowledge and integrity. Joel, however, is without question one of the most qualified and principled people I know, in or out of his industry."
