Franchise Opportunity Listings

There are many, many sources for franchising information but I’ve outlined a few here:

FranchiseOpportunities.com
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.

BestFranchiseOpportunities.com
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.

Entrepreneur.com 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 HowStuffWorks.com 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.
