Who is looking to start a business? 1000 People with a net worth of over $200,000 were surveyed and here are the results:

56% are planning on opening or starting a business in the next 12-18 months. (Either alone or with a partner.)

25% are females looking to start their own business.

56% looking to start a business are planning on having a business partner.

31% of the people looking to start a business are planning on going into business with a spouse or domestic partner. (That's roughly 10% of all respondents.)

30% of respondents looking to start a business are going into business with a friend and 26% are going into business with a colleague.

Females are more likely to go into business with a spouse or domestic partner than males.

How are business partners likely to be related? Here's a handy dandy chart:

The Nuts and Bolts of #Franchising

Ever think about owning your own business? As in owning a Franchise?  How about owning a Supercuts? You won't be cutting hair. You would have licensed employees for that, also normal business hours, managers, trained staff, and  Below are some the most common misconceptions about Franchising, and the Truth.

Common Supercuts and Franchising Misconceptions:

  • This business is for hairstylists. It's not a serious business for people who aren't hairstylists.
  • You need to know how to cut hair to open a Supercuts franchise.

The Truth about Supercuts and Franchising:

  • The hair care industry is stable. It is a need based business, not a want based business. (Frozen yogurt is a want, but a haircut is a need, both in good times and in bad.)
  • Cutting Hair cannot be made technologically obsolete.
  • Services must be performed by a licensed professional, you won't ever be cutting hair, you will be in charge of running the business instead.

It's simple to own a Supercuts. You don't have a high amount of staff, inventory costs are low, hours are especially reasonable compared to other franchise industries such as food, automotive, child care, fitness, etc.

The Supercuts brand is widely recognized. It's also backed by national advertising, robust web and mobile presence and the Supercuts brand is sought after nationally.

A recent NPR article discussed some of the whys and hows franchisees chose Supercuts.
