Economic impact of Franchised Businesses

The economic impact of franchising goes beyond activities inside franchised businesses, because franchises purchase products and services from non-franchise suppliers and their owners and workers spend income earned from franchising on personal purchases. As a result of these spillover effects, in 2007, franchising directly and indirectly accounted for 17.4 million private nonfarm jobs (11.8 percent of all private nonfarm jobs) and $0.7 trillion of private nonfarm payroll (9.7 percent of all private nonfarm payroll), $2.1 trillion of private nonfarm output (9.0 percent of all private nonfarm output), and $1.2 trillion of private nonfarm GDP (9.7 percent of all private nonfarm GDP).
