Discovering the Impact

Franchising is a method of distributing products and services that involves a franchisor who lends their trademark and business system to a franchisee who, in return, pays a royalty for the right to use the franchisor’s trademark and system in their business.

Franchised businesses operate in all 50 States, the District of Columbia and in every Congressional District. The number of jobs in franchised businesses in 2007 was greatest in California, Texas, Florida, Illinois, and Ohio. The number of jobs provided because of franchised businesses was greatest in California (1,852,200), Texas (1,352,000), Florida (1,111,900), Illinois (819,400), and New York (784,300). Considered relative to the size of a state’s economy, franchising had the greatest impact on jobs in Mississippi.
