The Top 3 Computer Franchise Predictions for 2013

The Top 3 Computer Franchise Predictions for 2013Whether you already run a computer franchise business or are considering starting one next year, you’re sure to want to know what the future may hold. 2012 has been a challenging year for many people, and 2013 is unlikely to be much better. This article sets out to make some predictions as to what may happen in the computer franchise world in 2013.

  1. Franchise businesses may be seen as a “low risk” option. Assuming that global economies begin to recover in 2013, and access to business financing becomes slightly easier, it’s fair to say that banks will probably see established franchises as a safe bet. As a result, it may be a little simpler to get funding to begin a new computer franchise business.

  2. Free or low-cost franchises will be popular. While economies may begin to recover, nobody could pretend that 2013 will mark a return to the “boom years.” As a result, it’s only common sense to predict that low-cost franchises or free-to-join IT support networks will seem an attractive proposition to entrepreneurs.

  3. Franchises will adapt. The computer world is changing fast and becoming less about PCs and servers and more about tablets and cloud services. Wise franchises will adapt and new franchises will appear that reflect new ways of doing things.
