Franchise Directories

Earlier this week I stumbled onto The Franchise Mall, an online directory of franchises. The reason why I prefer the Franchise Mall over other franchise directories is the amount of information given about the company. The Franchise Mall lists the number of franchises in operation for the past five years, start-up costs, statistics on business operations, similar franchises to look at, and much more.

There are many other excellent franchise directories to choose from and since results vary from database to database, I would suggest using a few when searching for franchise opportunities.

The Franchise Registry - SBA list of franchise companies whose franchisees enjoy the benefits of a streamlined review process for SBA loan applications.
Franchise Search - Resource for franchising lifestyles and personal ownership.
Franchise Opportunities - Directory of available franchise and business opportunities.
Best Franchise Opportunities - Best franchise opportunities, franchises for sale, and small business information.
Franchise Gator - Search franchises, opportunities and business for sale listings.
