Franchising is on an impressive upward trajectory, signaling a golden era for entrepreneurs looking to venture into this dynamic sector. The IFA 2024 Franchising Economic Outlook projects a 4.1% increase in total franchise output, which would grow the industry to $893.9 billion in 2024, an increase of more than $35 billion over 2023. This robust growth underscores the vitality and resilience of the franchising model, making it an attractive avenue for aspiring business owners.

Once primarily associated with fast food, franchising today encompasses a multitude of opportunities in industries ranging from retail to health and fitness, home services, spas and salons, and pet care. New entrepreneurs looking to buy their first franchise may find the choices overwhelming.

Choosing the right industry is a pivotal decision that is integral to your franchise’s success. Start by exploring your interests and passions, as aligning your business venture with what genuinely excites you can lead to a more fulfilling and motivating experience. You should also evaluate your professional background and skill set. Leveraging your experience can provide a competitive edge in managing a franchise, making certain franchise industries better suited to your capabilities than others.

It’s also essential to investigate which industries are flourishing in your area and which are facing saturation. You’ll want to identify industries with the potential for future growth — those that are embracing new technologies, adapting to changing consumer behaviors, and riding the wave of emerging societal trends.Top of Form

Which Franchises Are the Most Profitable?

It’s impossible to predict how profitable a certain franchise will be. Even solid, recognizable brands have some franchises that dramatically outperform others, as well as some franchises that go out of business. The reasons are varied — it could be because of the market, or even the location within the market. Or it could be something to do with the franchisee not working to their full potential. Before you invest, review the company’s franchise disclosure document to learn more about the financial performance of the company overall.

However, there are four franchise industries showing high growth that are well worth considering.

  • Personal services. FranData projects that personal services, including health/fitness and beauty-related services will lead the growth in franchising, increasing by 3% in 2024. They credit the growth of this industry on the pent-up demand for the services caused by pandemic restrictions.
  • Quick service restaurants (QSRs). The International Franchise Association expects QSRs to grow by 2.2% in 2024. In 2023, approximately 21% of new restaurant concepts were classified as QSRs, illustrating the continued consumer demand for fast food.
  • Pet services. Pet industry sales are expected to grow to almost $200 billion by 2030. Bloomberg Intelligence reports this growth is driven by an increase in spending on pet-related healthcare that has created longer pet lifespans that require more expensive elderly care.
  • Home services. Home services franchises encompass everything that has to do with the renovation, redecorating, repair, or upkeep of a home. According to Verified Market Research, the global home services market is projected to reach $182 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 21.14%.
