Franchises are a great lower-cost, tested method of building an asset and growing your income, by putting in the work to own your own piece of a company that supports your efforts. Here are some of the top franchise contenders of 2017:

BEAUTY: SUPERCUTS®

People are always going to have hair, and keeping it looking great is what Supercuts is all about. Specializing in quick, stylish cuts on a budget, Supercuts provides training and allows you to offer a range of grooming services to your customers.

CLEANING SERVICES: JAN-PRO®

Cleaning is a pain that most offices want to outsource, and Jan-Pro has the process down to a science. You can also start with a less expensive “do it yourself” business model and segue later into building a team that you oversee, which is very flexible.

RESTAURANTS: SAMURAI SAM’S®

Affordable, healthy Japanese food has largely been absent in America until recently. Samurai Sam’s Teriyaki Grill was ahead of the curve and it’s still going strong. If you love healthy food that tastes great and want to make a living at this passion, Samurai Sam’s is your ticket to doing just that.

GYMS: ANYTIME FITNESS®

There is always a market for getting fitter and stronger. Anytime Fitness has low staffing requirements, is perfect for people who may only have time to workout at 3 am, and uses the typical gym membership revenue model to keep your income steady.

If you’re a foodie looking for a competitive franchise opportunity, get in touch with Samurai Sam’s today.
