The Franchise Brokers and Consultants industry has experience modest growth in the five years to 2015, as rising consumer spending and growth in the total number of US businesses have helped increase the potential pool of franchisees and franchisors, which commonly demand industry services. Demand for franchise broker and consulting services was also driven by steadily rising corporate profit margins, which have allowed businesses to expand their operations and embrace more franchise opportunities. Moreover, historically low interest rates and increasing access to credit have made franchise ownership more affordable during this period.
