2009 Annual Franchise Development Report Identifies Industry Sales Trends

Top Lead-Generation Sources for Achieving Growth in 2009

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 22, 2008 - Franchise Update Media Group, the leading industry resource for franchise development, today announced the 2009 Annual Franchise Development Report (AFDR), which identifies the latest sales and marketing industry intelligence, including top lead-generation sources and sales trends. The report is based on a survey of 148 franchisors representing 57,000 units.

"An interesting aspect of the 2009 report is that franchisors successfully hitting their goals are focused more on multi-media programs using new and traditional sources for generating leads and closing deals," said Steve Olson, publisher of Franchise Update Media Group. "Aggressive franchisors recognize that prospective franchisees must be reached in a variety of ways, and are also beginning to incorporate sources such as YouTube, Craigslist, business and social networks into their recruitment plans."

Each year, leaders of the nation's top franchises look forward to the report, which provides timely information and benchmarking data from franchise organizations actively expanding their systems. The report provides insight into success drivers and sales trends for the coming year, enabling franchise development executive to evaluate and analyze their internal procedures and processes so that they can make necessary adjustments to achieve their growth objectives.

"Historic trending of sales and lead sources is critical, must-have information for development executives," said Cynthia Gartman, president and chief operating officer for Country Place Franchising.

Elise Hansen, franchise development coordinator for ChemDry says, "It's great knowing where everyone else is at. The performance measurements for sales follow-up showed what we're doing right, and where we can improve our efforts."

Copies of the 2009 Annual Franchise Development report are available now, and can be ordered online at www.franchiseupdate.com/afdr. Reports ordered before Oct. 31, 2008 are available for $299, and after that date, will be available for $399.
