Today in the studio, we recorded another edition of our new business show “Top Growth,” sponsored by Penta Communications and hosted by CEO Deborah Penta. This edition of Top Growth focused on Emerging Franchise Markets in the Northeast. Deborah interviewed Rob Branca, Jr. Chairman of Dunkin’ Donuts Independent Franchise Owners PAC and among other corporate affiliations, he is also with Branded Management Group and Branded Realty. According to the International Franchise Association, franchise businesses continue to grow at a rapid pace – faster than the rest of the United States economy. According to a recent report released from Washington DC, franchising remains on track to outperform the US economy for the 5th consecutive year. Franchise businesses will add 248,000 new jobs this year, which is a 2.9% increase to 8.8 million direct jobs over last year. The Franchise industry’s buzz is all about growth and this year, among the list of America’s top 500 Franchises, was Dunkin Donuts – which ranked #11.
