VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Franchise portal BeTheBoss.ca is the number one place on the internet for franchising information in Canada. Now they've released a statistical Infographic on their Top 100 Franchises list offering a breakdown of the most notable points found in the study.
Using percentages and figures, BeTheBoss lays out in simple terms what the biggest industries are in the Canadian franchising world, where the companies in the Top 100 originate from, and much more. Rob Lancit, the president of FranTech Media Inc. which owns and operates BeTheBoss.ca, is thrilled with the data set and confident that it will be a great resource for franchisees.
"A lot of work went into collecting the data, and we feel this Infographic accurately reflects the nature of franchising in Canada today. For anyone looking into buying their first franchise this is a great resource because it'll tell them in plain terms what industries are trending right now, and allow them to make a more informed decision on what franchise to buy into," says Lancit.
The data set indicates that 47 per cent of the companies in the Top 100 originate from Canada and 49 per cent come from the US. Australia, the UK, and Japan make up the remaining 4 per cent.
"Franchising is a multi-billion dollar industry in Canada and the US, so a study like this is extremely useful. This will add a lot more value to our visitors, and further cement our position as the go-to place for franchising information. It's a competitive industry, but this list is going to give franchisees an edge as no one else has really done this kind of a study in Canada before," says Lancit.
The food industry has always been highly franchisable and it shows. An interesting statistic gleaned from the Top 100 is that 47 per cent of the franchises in the list are food franchises. This includes fast food, bars, and casual dining restaurants. The study further breaks down the food franchises sector into what types of food are most popular. Pizza tops the list with 25 per cent of all food franchises. Burgers, and yoghurt/ice cream establishments take the second and third place respectively. This is just a sample of the info you can find in the Top 100.
"We're very excited about this study and how it will benefit future and current franchisees. There are many ways they can go about using this information in their business search," says Lancit. "It's always been our goal to help future and current franchisees anyway we can, and this info is a giant step in that direction."
