Whether we’re aware of it or not, trends play an important role in our lives. From choosing what restaurant to eat at on Friday night to purchasing the new pair of shoes everyone is wearing, trends help consumers determine what they should invest their time, money, and energy on!

The same can be said for the franchising industry, which is why the January/February FranchiseCanada issue is showcasing what franchising in Canada will look like in 2017.

Specifically, the issue highlights five emerging sectors that prospective franchisees should keep an eye on in the New Year, including sports, recreation, and entertainment; mobile- and home-based businesses; business consultants; sign services; and food service franchises.

FranchiseCanada’s cover story on Franchising Trends will also provide insight into why these sectors are gaining popularity and highlight franchises that have found success in these growing industries!
