The Data Franchise Executives Feel Confident About

The survey data reveals a significant uptick in overall confidence levels among respondents.

In the current quarter, 66.7 percent of franchise executives expressed confidence in meeting growth goals for the year, marking an increase from 50 percent in the previous quarter. This positive shift in sentiment showcases the resilience and adaptability of the franchise industry in the face of current economic conditions (which, as of this writing, are pretty darn good).

Although overall confidence has improved, certain concerns do persist.

For instance, interest rates remain a significant worry for 83.3 percent of respondents, impacting their confidence levels.

Additionally, 75 percent of respondents cited inflation as a substantial impediment to growth, leading to increased cost estimates in Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDDs).

Mike Rozman, CEO and co-founder of BoeFly, emphasized the importance of leveraging these insights to make informed decisions that drive sustainable growth within respective franchise brands. The aim is to foster prosperity for the franchising sector as a whole. BoeFly’s Franchise Growth Confidence Index aims to provide industry stakeholders with valuable information to navigate the evolving landscape.
