French-style franchising - an attractive model
French franchises are flourishing! As the leaders in Europe, they have seen their numbers double
in the past ten years, with steady growth of between 8% and 11% over the last five years. The
number of franchises is increasing by 5% to 10% annually - in 2012, there were an estimated
1,658 networks, with a turnover of €50.68 billion (compared to €47.88 billion in 2011).
