Launching the Definitive Resource for Franchising
The Franchise Handbook will go to subscribers as a bonus issue with the January 2019 edition of Franchise Times, and be available online.
We at Franchise Times are hard at work on a new project: the acquisition of The Franchise Handbook, for 30 years a recognized industry resource and now preparing for a re-launch.
Available January 1, 2019, The Franchise Handbook is an annual print supplement and online resource, providing a compendium of franchise facts, dates, easy-to-read charts, statistics and succinct explanations of challenging franchise topics to help franchisors, franchisees, suppliers and vendors find answers to their franchising questions. The new guide is meant for handy reference again and again each year.
The Franchise Handbook will present data such as: fastest-growing concepts, highest to lowest average sales by industry sector, calendar of must-attend shows, state-by-state expansion checklist, fastest-growing concepts and more.
Advertising sections will showcase hundreds of growing franchises and vendor directories will list top service providers in legal, technology, real estate, finance, equipment and other areas crucial to building a successful franchise operation.
“We’re excited about re-launching The Franchise Handbook as a supplement to Franchise Times’ print and online products and believe the new version will provide an essential resource to people who need answers about franchising throughout each year,” said Mary Jo Larson, publisher of Franchise Times magazine.
Franchise Times acquired The Franchise Handbook this summer from Enterprise Magazines of Glendale, Wisconsin.
