FRANCHISE YOUR BUSINESS IN:
Everything is coming up Houston! This rapidly-growing city has a strong economy and an even stronger community.
Starting your own business from scratch is no easy feat and building it into a successful enterprise is even more difficult. When you have succeeded at both of these things, the natural next step is to expand your business even further with additional locations. Growing through franchising is a fast and cost-effective way to add locations to your business, but where does a new franchisor locate franchises?
We suggest Houston, Texas — the fastest growing city in the nation.
Because the economy is so strong and so diverse, a franchise in virtually any industry has a place in Houston.
The United States economy is doing well, but Houston’s economy is doing great! The economy in Houston is one of the strongest in the nation, with major industries thriving in the city. Houston has the second-most Fortune 500 companies headquartered there (only New York City has more), and is top in the nation for exports, surpassing New York City back in 2013.
The list of major industry players in Houston’s economy is long, which is why the city is thriving. The biggest industries are energy, manufacturing, aeronautics, and transportation, but Houston also leads in healthcare and manufacturing oilfield equipment. Considered a global city, Houston succeeds in business, international trade, media, science, education, sports, research, and so much more.
A SENSE OF COMMUNITY
In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in 2017, Houston proved that taking care of its residents and businesses was a top priority with everyone—government, citizens, business owners—coming together to put the city back together. The strong community in Houston makes it an amazing place to locate a franchise.
It’s not just the economy in Houston that is diverse, the population is the most diverse in the entire state of Texas. By some accounts, Houston is more racially and ethnically diverse than any other major city in the U.S.
Houston has a deep commitment to art, culture, and history. More than 7 million people visit the city’s Museum District every year to see the various performances, museums, cultural institutions, and exhibits that are located there. There is always something going on in Houston.
As you can see, the list of reasons to locate a franchise in Houston is long and now is the time to take advantage of this amazing city. The first step to getting started is laying down the groundwork for your franchise, including things like the legal documents, your operations manual, and a winning sales and marketing strategy.
