Franchising Offers A Good Solution to Career Question, "What Next?"

San Diego, California (April 17, 2009) -- With baby boomers getting set to retire, and with unemployment at levels unseen in decades, many are looking to the next season in their lives. One option with growing interest is taking more control of one’s future through small business ownership, specifically with franchising. And there's no better time to look at being your own boss than during National Small Business Week, May 17-23, 2009.

But why franchising?

Edgar Harris, a PostalAnnex+ franchisee in Oceanside, CA explained: “When I retired from the military, I knew I had the skills to try my hand at owning a business. But I didn’t want to learn from scratch. Franchising offered me the great opportunity of ownership without having to do it all on my own.”
