July 25, 2017 // Franchising.com // New York, NY - Franchise Grade®, the leading franchise market research firm in the franchise industry, has released its latest Facts and Figures report - “Historical Trends of Key Franchise System Metrics”.
Franchise Grade®, analyzed 1551 franchise systems in its database for the period 2013 to 2016 to identify any trends in four important areas: Investment, Ongoing Fees, Franchise Rights and Financial Transparency. We excluded the Lodging Sector from the analysis since its large investment amounts would skew any averages.
One of the trends that we identified revealed that the total initial investment for a franchise increased by 9% which coincided with a 9% average increase in the initial franchise fee.
Commenting on the results of the report, Jeff Lefler, CEO and Founder of Franchise Grade stated: “It’s important for individual franchisors to be aware of changing trends in franchising especially in the areas that are important to franchise industry investors. Being aware of these trends should alert franchisors to know how changing trends can impact their respective franchise sector and category.”
