Franchise Businesses that Out-Perform in a Recession
If you’re an entrepreneur looking to invest in business but hesitant with the speculation of a recession on its way, here’s four franchise business ideas that are likely to out-perform in a recession. Business During a Recession For many businesses, a recession is a difficult period to survive. The first thing people stop buying are non-essential goods and services like fashion retail, luxury items and restaurants. An economic recession then leads to companies having to scale back wherever possible, make cuts to staffing numbers. A reduction in turnover leads to a reduction in profit and when this happens, especially for an extended period of time, it can be very difficult to bounce back from. A recession-proof business is one that provides goods or services that are everyday essential items. These businesses tend to suffer little effect during an economic downturn. Derek Cafferata, CEO and President of franchise experts All State...Read More
Inflation & Franchising
Inflation has its advantages and disadvantages. For business, it’s franchising that sits strong when the economy experiences an inflationary rise. In its most basic terms, inflation is when the prices of everyday goods and services increases. For consumers, the dollar buys less and the cost of living rises.

The WPI is the increase in price of bulk goods at a wholesale level. CPI is the increase in prices of products and services at a customer level. When the WPI increases, usually the CPI will follow because, eventually, the customer will be the one who covers this increase in price. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the Urban Consumer CPI increased 7.5 percent between January 2021 and January 2022. Advantages and Disadvantages of...Read More
