Here are ten solid franchise opportunities that did well during 2012 and are poised for continued growth in 2013 and beyond.

As a matter of course I rarely promote franchise opportunities, however, since I’m typically aware of what’s happening in the franchise industry I felt it appropriate after the end of 2012 to list ten franchises that I believe are on the right path. For those interested in pursuing one of these franchise opportunities be sure to perform the appropriate due diligence and confirm that your financial and business profiles match up with the specific franchise you may choose to pursue. This are not listed in order of preference.

As the franchise industry continues to face the challenges brought on by the great recession and tight credit markets those franchisors that achieve continued growth reflect sound franchise systems including these ten franchise opportunities.

 1. CMIT Solutions:

CMIT serves small business customers with IT service packages for small business clients. The franchise grew by 15% in 2012. Sheri Vandermause, CMIT Solutions head of franchise development states: “We attribute our strong growth to the strength of our business model, the space in the market that we are in, and the fact that many talented executives are interested in having something of their own at this stage in their career – that allows them to see the direct benefits of their efforts. Additionally, there is consolidation in the industry for IT services companies that support small businesses and CMIT’s systems, support and collaborative environment provide the perfect environment for those independent firms to grow at an accelerated pace.”
