For some of you, opening a franchise represents the opportunity to get out of corporate America and finally strike it out on your own. For others, franchising represents a great investment that promises to beat the 1% your savings account is delivering you every year.

Whatever your reason for being interested in opening your own franchise, it all starts with a good idea. And we’ve put together the five best franchise ideas for 2015, each ready to help you realize your goals:
