2012 off to a good start for Franchising

After a slow 2 weeks during the holidays we watched as many franchisors declared 2012 is starting off for them so much better than last year at the same time. Great news. Franchising and this blogger have weathered many recessions in the past 30 years but none quite as decimating as this one. Once the housing market is hurting we all are!
Just returned from Pillar To Post convention and CertaPro Painters 2 weeks ago and there was lots of joy all around. Awesome, hard working, middle class franchisees all and they seem to have a much more down to earth and less stressful attitude and existence.
