Business service franchises have increased in market share more than any other sector. Canadian franchise businesses are booming, based partially on the stability of the economy. The sector is one of the largest in the world, second only to the U.S. Accounting franchising, and is thus a solid franchise business opportunity for those who have a head for finance and experience in bookkeeping.
There are a variety of options that allow you to get involved in a niche you are passionate about. Tax preparation, payroll services and incentive counseling are all relatively low investment franchises that have the potential to offer significant return on investment in a growing industry. Debt management, bookkeeping services and retail accounting are all franchising opportunities that let you get involved with the financial management of small to medium sized businesses.
