According to their website, Franchise Help is currently the world’s largest independent information source available for people who are considering purchasing a franchise business opportunity within the United States. states that they are thousands of franchises in the US at this time which employ millions of people and generate almost a trillion dollars in economic output, making them an attractive business prospect.

Content, content, content. FranchiseHelp has intelligent, fresh content that attracts quality franchise candidates. It really sets them apart from the rest. Bottom line: this site is the best resource out there for connecting leading franchisors and prospective franchisees.

Serious Business Buyer Resource
August 31, 2015

Our franchise has used to connect us with multiple serous franchisee candidates

We aren't new to buying online leads, so it was apparent very quickly that a much higher fraction of the people requesting information on our concept from were serious business buyers compared to other lead sources we had tried.

If you ARE new to online advertising for your franchise, I recommend you read the "Lead Generation Resource Center" articles on the Franchise Help website to understand how they find franchise buyers for your concept. Even though we've been buying portal leads for our franchise concept for years, those articles really gave me a better understanding of why the lead quality at FranchiseHelp has worked so well for us.

Good luck!

I like that provides both useful industry reports and detailed descriptions of franchise and their financial requirements to help you understand what it would take to own one franchise versus another.

tip: if you know you want to open your own business but aren't sure which one would make the best fit for you, try the site's franchise personality matching quiz.

Highly recommended.
