Top Franchise Categories Of The Year

2022 was a strong year for many businesses, but some industries experienced more growth than others. Here are some of the top performing franchise categories of 2022:

1 Automobile Repair Services

On average, people keep their automobiles for almost 12 years. This number is expected to increase due to rising car prices and longer lasting automobiles. These are just some of the factors that are conspiring to make automobile repair franchises sizzling hot in 2022. Another key factor is that cars are becoming so technologically sophisticated that repairing your vehicle yourself is becoming almost impossible. Explore Automotive Franchises.

This year’s pandemic has shown how vital it is to ensure your living environment is as clean and sanitary as possible. Even as things get back to normal, there’s going to be an increased emphasis on proactive cleanliness as a way of preventing viruses and other pathogens from invading the sanctity of people’s living and working spaces.

As the owner of a cleaning franchise, you can help busy professionals who don’t have time to do the cleaning themselves to accomplish this worthwhile goal. Explore Cleaning Franchises.

During the pandemic, tech that made it easier to connect with others—such as tablets, smartphones, and computers—became essential for people’s psychological survival. Now, as we move to a “new normal,” technology will continue to be an integral part of people’s lives as they discover that they prefer to continue to work remotely. This means that franchises offering electronic device sales and repair will be a hot commodity in the coming year. Explore Computer & Internet Franchises.
