)-- Entrepreneurs and opportunity seekers looking for the next up-and-coming franchise concept have a great new resource: TopNewFranchises.Com. TopNewFranchises.Com is conducting a national search for companies that began offering franchise opportunities in 2000 or later. Anyone can nominate their pick for the Top New Franchise, and all nominees are able to receive “votes,” in the form of customer, franchisee and employee endorsements, free of charge. It is the only franchise recognition program that allows franchise owners and customers to share their enthusiasm for their favorite franchise.
According to TopNewFranchises.Com publisher Sean Kelly, the response to the site was immediate and enthusiastic. “Despite our intentionally soft opening, with no advertising for the site and little fanfare, we began receiving nominations and votes faster than we could list the companies,” said Kelly. “By the end of the first full week we received 20 nominations and hundreds of votes. More than 40 new franchises have been nominated to date.”
What are the hot new franchise concepts in the running for Top New Franchise? According to Kelly, there is a wide variety of new franchises, from organic pizza restaurants to bulk tobacco shops, and from indoor golf to interior design franchises. Some of the Top New Franchisees include:
