DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- How do you identify an amazing franchise? A new book by internationally-recognized franchise speaker and author Dr. John Hayes answers that question and profiles 12 companies that Dr. Hayes says have the traits that make them an amazing franchise opportunity in the coming year.
Available today on Amazon and other outlets in e-book and paperback formats, "12 Amazing Franchise Opportunities for 2015" is the latest in a long line of books Dr. Hayes has written on the subjects of franchising and small business over the past three decades.
"For years, franchising has been the most popular path for those looking to open a small business," Dr. Hayes said. "But with so many options in so many industries, deciding which opportunity is the best is an almost impossible decision. In this book I take a look at what I have found sets some franchises apart from others and provided a dozen examples."
Featured in "12 Amazing Franchise Opportunities for 2015" are:
Dickey's Barbecue Pit
"With 500 locations in 43 states by the end of 2014, and another 150 locations in development, barbecue has proven to be a smokin' hot franchise opportunity."
"This is a $700 billion industry that's targeted for growth in the U.S. and many other countries with its convenience in customers never having to get out of their vehicles."
"It creates a social experience where guests enjoy their favorite cocktails and snacks while learning to paint. Because it is a no experience required art event, the focus is on fun."
United Franchise Group
"With company-wide sales of $450 million annually, United Franchise Group's experience and vision for growth has led all of its brands to amazing levels of success."
"For years I've watched the PostNet corporate team develop their franchise network. What I value about them is their honesty, passion, and their commitment to doing everything that's possible to help their franchisees succeed."
"In the world of signage and visual graphics, FASTSIGNS continues to be a top-rated franchise opportunity year after year."
"The brand is very popular in America and has a predictive and successful business model … Appliance repair is a necessary and repetitive business which will continue to expand."
"Multi-unit operators are welcome as Wingstop will surpass 1,000 locations within the next three years. And if that's not amazing enough, I suggest you go sample some of their wings!"
Palm Beach Vapors
"Palm Beach Vapors is America's premiere franchise opportunity retail vapor store with an impressive business model that requires less than $100,000 for start-up."
Dental Fix RX
"This is a franchise opportunity that's smack dab in the midst of a booming industry, and that's one of the signposts for success for franchisees."
"While Jani-King attracts franchisee investors who have accumulated years of business experience (and the money to show it) the company also attracts franchisee investors who are just getting started in business … When it comes to the cleaning industry, Jani-King is one amazing opportunity."
America's Swimming Pool Company
"I'm enthusiastic about the company's leadership, and I expect we'll see more ASP franchisees throughout North America in the coming years."
