TAMARAC, FL--(Marketwire - May 5, 2011) - National Small Business Week, May 16-20, shines a spotlight on the role that the nation's entrepreneurs play in keeping our economy strong and providing new jobs to help fuel the recovery.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, more than one in two Americans today either works for or owns a small business. And these small businesses account for 60-80 percent of the new jobs being created in our economy.
"Our PuroClean Franchisees are proud members of this group of small businesses," says Cliff Nonnenmacher, Vice President of Franchise Development for PuroClean, "but with one critical difference. PuroClean franchise owners benefit from the tools, systems, name recognition and experience of a large and successful franchise organization. We provide a business roadmap that helps even a first-time entrepreneur find the pathway to success."
For many professionals who want or need to start a new career, franchising may provide the answer. A report prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP for The International Franchise Association Educational Foundation predicts that "Franchised businesses are poised for stronger growth in 2011..." The report forecasts a 2.5 percent increase in franchised establishments over 2010 rates.
"We hope that findings like these will encourage would-be entrepreneurs to investigate the option of franchise ownership opportunities in the United States," said Nonnenmacher. "The franchise business model offers a new owner proven business plans, accounting standards, training and more, along with a network of professionals with experience in delivering the company's products and services. Add hard work and a determination to succeed, and you have a winning combination that can work for anyone."
