Capitalizing On the Largest Entrepreneurial Surge This Country Has Ever Seen
January 25, 2008 // Franchising.com // Southbury, CT – For FranchisEsource Brands International (FSBI), strategic activities in 2007, a brand acquisition and operational consolidation, are the fuel igniting the plan for aggressive growth designed specifically around a multi-brand franchise approach to the marketplace. FSBI (www.franchisEsource.com) is a multi-brand franchisor principally engaged in growing solid concepts into major international franchise brands such as The Entrepreneur's Source, Decor & You, Business Advisers International, Business Partner and FranchiseSearch.com.
"Our 6 national brands are in demand and offer great investments for the aspiring entrepreneur and for multi-unit investors, and those researching the various franchise options," says Terry Powell, CEO of FSBI. "We have an aggressive five-year financial plan of being a $750 million company taking advantage of the multi-unit trends and surge in the business services sector," he added.
According to a recent International Franchise Association (IFA) study, franchise growth today is due to continued expansion of existing brands, new brands entering existing industries and more companies using a franchise business model in industries not typically known for franchising. However, the multi-unit model is a significant factor in the continuing expansion of franchising.
According to Fortune Small Business, the U.S. is in the middle of the largest entrepreneurial surge the country has ever seen, says Powell. Approximately 75,000 corporate employees are laid off every month, according to outplacement firm Challenger, Gray and Christmas, that's 30,000 more per month than just six years ago, he added.
Today, FSBI has 40 area and regional developers actively working North American markets to exponentially grow co-branded/multi-brand models and individual units. FSBI currently has 544 units represented by their national brands with a commitment to expand to over 2000 units within a 5 year period.
"We will conservatively reach the 2000 unit mark if December is any indicator, where 59 new units were opened and became operational, we are off to an impressive start," says Powell.
As leaders in business coaching, The Entrepreneur's Source, TES (www.EsourceCoach.com), along with its affiliate brand, Business Advisers International, BAI (www.AdviCoach.com), with its AdviCoach Advantage, dominates 33% of the multi-billion dollar coaching/consulting franchise market. FSBI predicts continuing dominance in the business coaching franchise sector by 2012 by achieving a commanding 45% market share.
Another FSBI brand, Decor & You (www.DecorAndYou.com), offers a progressive executive business multi-unit model with business owners functioning as CEOs managing professional interior decorators nationally.
And Business Partner (www.BusinessPartner.com), the new brand affiliate of FSBI, strongly compliments the FSBI mission of being a one stop marketing services franchise providing business owners a full suite of marketing products and services provided by MktgCoaches.
FSBI online search tool, FranchiseSearch.com (www.FranchiseSearch.com) with its unique Google Search capabilities, is the premier Internet resource site for individuals seeking information on franchising opportunities. It offers a list of proven franchise concepts, business history, investment requirements and a personal testimonial and description of the lifestyle each business offers.
"FSBI represents the culmination of over 24 years of in-depth experience working with hundreds of franchise concepts and franchisors growing the many different franchise brands available on the market today," said Powell.
