Franchise Opportunity Listings

There are many, many sources for franchising information but I’ve outlined a few here:
describes itself as the “web’s largest database of franchise and business opportunities” and offers a search facility by industry or investment level with various industries broken out into type of situation. It also offers articles and news on franchise business.
This site offers a similar look-up including a good resources list naming well-known sources for franchise information. One can also look up company names directly.

The International Franchise Association
Also includes a franchisor directory as well as a supplier directory, books and reports. Franchise Zone
Slices and dices the similar information in some useful ways.
Like Top-Home based, Fastest Growing, Top New and Top Low Cost among others.

For a quick overview has an article on How Franchising Works by Lee Ann Obringer that offers pros and cons, rules, tips and association links.

We also have in our library collection:the Franchise Opportunities Guide, and The 2005 Franchise Annual.
