    Business growth wouldn’t be the same without franchising. During the last five years, according to the International Franchising Association (IFA), franchises have expanded their employment by an annual average of 2.6 percent. That’s 20 percent higher than all businesses across the economy, according to the Washington, D.C.-based industry group.

    If you could travel back in time to visit a franchised business of 50 years ago, you would see many similarities to today’s franchises. For instance, standard signage, menus, employee uniforms, and operating procedures were as common for franchisees then as they are today. But franchising has nonetheless changed enormously and has seen countless firsts and innovations over the years, decades, and centuries it has existed.
