Top Rated Retail Franchises

If you ever thought about owning your own business and opening a retail store or service you’re not alone. Even in a market dominated by retail giants like Walmart, Target, and Home Depot, some 99% of retail stores remain small businesses, account for 29 million jobs, and contribute an estimated $2.6 trillion in the U.S. GDP each year.

And despite pandemic challenging times in 2021, the retail market remained strong. Data forecasts indicate that consumer spending will only increase in 2022.  So, now may be the perfect time to get in on the retail wave by investing in a proven franchise.

The Retail Category is inherently wide-ranging, all focused on the business model of “retail” rather than on any particular product, service, or clientele. There are many well-known brands as well as “specialty” brands that have found their niche market within this category.

Browse the award-winning retail franchises below and complete a contact form on a company’s profile page to receive more information directly from the brand. Who knows? This could be the start of an exciting new career for you.
