SAN DIEGO, Dec. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- EmpoweredEzine.com is an online article directory where online marketers, entrepreneurs and business owners can share information and learn from some of the industry's top professionals. The website's motto "Where knowledge equals power" sums up the goal of the articles posted on the site. A recently featured article on Empowered Ezine, titled "Top 10 Franchises 2014," takes a look at the top rated franchises from last year and explains how potential franchisees can take information about these top picks in order to base their own franchise research on.
The article explains, "Every year, Entrepreneur.com puts out a list of the 500 best franchises based on statistical and financial data, this year ranging from July 2011 to July 2013. While getting a top spot on this list does not necessarily mean that a franchise is the best option for new franchisees, taking a look at the top 10 franchises 2014 lists as the best can help potential franchise owners figure out which business opportunities have the most possibility for growth and success in the coming year. If you are thinking of buying a franchise, this list might contain the perfect opportunity for you, or at least give you some ideas when looking for a more ideal business for your situation."
The ten top franchises for 2014 given on this list are as follows:
- Anytime Fitness
- Hampton Hotels
- Jimmy John's Gourmet Sandwiches
- 7-Eleven Inc.
- Denny's Inc.
- Pizza Hut Inc.
- Dunkin' Donuts
Empowered Ezine explains, "Now looking at this list, probably the first thing you will notice is that more than half of the entries have to do with food. Food franchises make up a good portion of the top 500 list; almost a quarter of all entries are food franchises. This is because franchising and food go pretty much in hand. When people are hungry they're usually going to look for a place where they know what the food will taste like and how much they will pay for it. Food chains offer consistency for food lovers, so buying in to a food franchise with a recognizable brand can be one of the best franchise ideas for 2014."
That article has a similar summary of the other categories represented on this short list, namely personal improvement (Anytime Fitness and Supercuts), accommodations (Hampton Hotels) and cleaning and restoration (Servpro). Empowered Ezine says,
"As you can see, some of the top franchise ideas for 2014 fall into four major categories: food, self-improvement, cleaning, and accommodations. Another good franchise category not listed here is online franchises. There are online franchises that offer all sorts of online and offline services. One online business that has a very good return on investment, if done properly, is online affiliate marketing. Internet Income University, which is a free online marketing training website, also offers a turnkey online affiliate marketing business for those who are interested. A plus for this business is that you can learn how to promote any online or offline venture you have once you learn the skills necessary for successful online affiliate marketing."
The article ends by saying, "Of course, those who are thinking of buying a franchise need to do their own research and thoroughly look into any business venture they are considering getting into. The top franchise ideas for 2014 listed here may not be the most ideal choice for everybody's specific situations, but taking a look at them can be a starting point for further inquiries."
