What Are the Major Industries in Franchising?

Virtually every sector you can imagine. Franchising covers the spectrum from almost A to Z. In addition to a large presence in the restaurant and hotel sectors, the industry categories in franchising include service-related fields such as home repair and remodeling, carpet cleaning, household furnishings, and various other maintenance and cleaning services. Then there are business support services, including accounting, mail processing, advertising services, package shipping, personnel services, and printing services.
