As a Franchise Consultant I have seen a great jump in the number of retirees looking for great franchise businesses to own.
The reasons are many:
- They lost income during the recent recesssion and need to make it up
- They are healthy and want to have fun doing something that is also lucrative
- They want to give back to the community but also earn a nice income
- Many other reasons
It makes perfect sense because a franchise will provide all the training needed and there are 1000's of franchises available today.
