Job Data Shows Improving Economy As House Doctors Handyman Service Plans 10 New Franchise Openings

Data shows the employment market in the U.S. is growing stronger as Jim Hunter President of House Doctors Handyman Services company announces plans for 10 new franchise openings.

Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) July 23, 2013 - The employment market in the U.S. has shown signs of strength in recent weeks as 195,000 jobs were added to payrolls in June and Labor Department data showed State unemployment benefits dropping by 24,000 to a seasonally adjusted 334,000 in July. The improving economy is also leading to an increased interest in business ownership according to Jim Hunter President of House Doctors the professional handyman service and home improvement company.

Just last week the House Doctors handyman franchise President who is no stranger to entrepreneurship having owned companies in three different countries announced plans to open 10 new franchises over the next few months. House Doctors franchisees do not swing the hammer but manage technicians who work on the growing to do lists of busy homeowners.

Hunter said. "Increased interest in franchising is great for the economy and for job creation. So it's exciting when we are seeing an increase in the numbers of people interested in starting their own business. Such is the demand that we are already planning 10 new franchise openings over the next few months. Entrepreneurial activity leading to job creation definitely increases as people feel better about the future."

June's ADP National Franchise report shows franchises added almost 28,000 in new jobs in June alone. Today the International Franchise Association promotes 825,000 franchise businesses across 300 business lines, which support nearly 18 million jobs and generate $2.1 trillion of economic output to the U.S. economy.

House Doctors is forecasting double digit growth this year and expects to be adding staff at it's Corporate Office in Cincinnati soon. Hunter continued. "Each House Doctors franchise that opens immediately employs three people. Then as the business grows that number can increase to five, ten or more. Over the next few years we have aggressive plans for growth. Across the US we are planning to open 300-400 franchises creating hundreds of additional jobs. We are just one of many franchisors who are thinking the same way. That can lead to an ever increasing number of jobs in the future."
