5 Fast Growing Franchises in 2015

Which franchise should you open? There are a lot of factors that go into that decision, but one criterion that you absolutely have to consider is how quickly that franchise is growing. You can imagine what it would have been like to open a McDonald’s way back in the 60’s or 70’s, seeing that it has turned into one of the most successful franchises of all time.

If you’re interested in opening up a franchise that’s fast growing in 2015, we recommend checking out one of the following franchises:

1. Jimmy John’s

With over 2,000 locations already, Jimmy John’s can’t open fast enough! While the sandwiches they produce are simple, customers absolutely love their quality, consistency, and speed. The average annual sales for 2013 was $1,470,812, which leads to unbelievable profits for franchisees. Jimmy John’s is only getting bigger, and fast!

2. Big Cat

Ever heard of an electric bike? No? That’s because they aren’t as big in the U.S. as they are all over the world. In Europe in 2014, there were an estimate of 1.4 Million electric bicycles sold, and Big Cat is leading the charge in bringing electric bikes to the U.S. If you want to be on the cutting edge of transportation in the U.S., you have to check out Big Cat.

3. Cruise One

Americans absolutely love going on cruises. This is a fact. Cruise One is a fast growing franchise that’s taking advantage of this fact, where franchisees help customers plan the cruise of their dreams. With over 900 franchises already around, the current franchisees can tell you how popular their product really is! As the economy continues to recover and Americans have more money to travel, Cruise One is poised to take advantage!

4. Fleet Services International

I bet you didn’t know that the automotive aftermarket is the second largest franchise category, only to the food franchise business. Corporations and the government are in desperate need of organized and qualified maintenance, and Fleet Services as at the forefront of the industry. Having partnered with Richard Petty, the brand recognition is off the charts!

5. Doc Popcorn

It may have flown under the radar, but the Doc Popcorn franchise was actually acquired by the Dippin’ Dots franchisor in 2014. That means that it now has the full force of the Dippin Dots franchise behind it driving their growth. Snack food is exploding! As Americans are out and about more frequently, Doc Popcorn brings a tasty treat right to them. You may see a Doc Popcorn in every shopping mall you visit by the end of the year!

Watch out, Franchisees! 10 Franchisor Red Flags

Only a limited number of states require registration by franchisors, and franchisors are by no means required to register in states where they have no intention of selling franchises. However, if a mature franchisor appears to be consciously avoiding the registration states, this may suggest some level of internal concern about the FDD, the franchisor’s sales tactics, or the franchise system as a whole. The cover pages of the FDD will identify where the franchisor is required to register (and whether it has registered or not), and the charts in Item 20 of the FDD will explain whether the franchisor has ever sold a franchise in any of the registration states.
