The Economy is “Nil Sine Franchising” – Nothing without Colorado’s Franchises

It is well-known in franchising that the franchise business model is historically the most successful form of business ownership, with franchisees leveraging ongoing and dedicated support from the franchisor, proven practices and systems, and widespread brand recognition.

Being entrepreneurs themselves, franchisors are passionate about helping Americans achieve their dreams of career ownership and self-sufficiency and making a positive impact with their franchisees by filling a specific need in the market.

Franchising supports employment and job market in ColoradoBut what franchisors might not know is how much they positively contribute to the national economy, employment and job market, and the national GDP.

According to, in 2019, franchise systems supported 8.4 million direct jobs, and created $787.5 billion of economic output for the US economy, resulting in 3% of the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

On the state level, franchisors contribute greatly to local communities. In Colorado, for example, there are over 15,600 franchise locations directly supporting 150,400 jobs. This generates $13.4billion in output, and contributes $8.1 billion of the GDP.

Franchisors have every right to be proud of being part of the economic engine that is franchising and The Entrepreneur’s Source feels privileged to contribute to these numbers as well.
