The Top 50 Blogs Posts on Franchising In 2008

Many entrepreneurs are turning to opening a franchise as a way to build their own companies while taking on a proven business model. Franchisors offer their time tested methods and business practices as a way to grow their companies, while the franchisees pay an upfront fee and a percentage of gross monthly sales for the help and information. The word franchise actually comes from the French term “franchir” which means to clear an obstacle or difficulty – with the difficulty that most entrepreneurs go through when starting up a company from scratch, it’s no wonder that the franchising trend has taken off! We’ve put together the Top 50 Franchising Blog Posts from the past year to help you navigate the waters and give you the best information to consider when starting a franchise.

Joel Libava “When Anita Campbell approached me about being the “Franchise Expert in Residence” on her award winning site, I was certainly humbled. I had been blogging/writing for 2.5 years, and was not sure I was quite ready to write a monthly column on Small Business Trends. Was I ready to be alongside small business experts like Steven Little, Tim Berry, Jack Yoest, Ivana Taylor, and others? With a lot of encouragement from Anita, I started my monthly writing, and she prepped me for a “Big” Franchise Trends for 2008 article she wanted me to do. Evan, when your team voted THAT article as Number #1, I was so happy! {Anita was too, obviously} Thank you so much for the recognition, Evan! Keep up the great work you do for current and future entrepreneurs, everywhere…”
