Perfect Economic Conditions for a Franchise

New York is the financial capital of the world, home of Wall Street, and many large and important banks and investment firms. You would think that this distinction would mean that the economy couldn’t possibly grow, but that’s not true. Diversity is important in any economy, and New York is one of the most diverse cities in the world, attracting people from all over the world to live and work there.

Since 2009, job growth has steadily increased in New York, landing it the #55 spot on Forbes’ list of the top two-hundred cities for job growth. In addition, the sheer size of the population of New York’s five boroughs is the stuff of dreams for a franchise owner; the vast labor pool in the city allows a New York franchise owner to be picky and select only the top candidates for management and employees. Indeed, New York is one of the most educated cities in the United States, as evidenced by its ranking as #30 by Forbes. This highly educated population is a boon for an owner of a franchise in New York, as it creates both a highly qualified labor force and a large customer base.

Small Business Development Center

One factor that surely contributes to New York’s economic success is the emphasis on both big and small businesses. New York values both the financial giants on Wall Street and the small local businesses and franchises. Indeed, New York is home to several companies dedicated to offering assistance and resources to small business owners, including the Small Business Development Center, or SBDC.

The SBDC is a non-profit organization that helps owners of small businesses and franchises with every facet of ownership. Just some of the services the SBDC provides are business counseling, business plan development, assistance with e-commerce, understanding state and city licensing requirements, finding investment funding, and more. The SBDC is able to offer such services to qualifying businesses free of charge, due to funding from various private and public avenues.
