Georgia Leads the Nation in New Franchise Interest Index™
Georgia, Nevada and Florida led the nation with the highest levels of interest in buying a franchise in 2019, according to new data from Franchise Insights.
The Franchise Interest Index™ reveals the relative interest of entrepreneurs making an investment inquiry by indexing proprietary data with state population on a per capita basis. An index of 100 indicates average per-capita interest, while an index of 120 represents 20% higher-than-average interest. The Franchise Insights proprietary data is drawn from the Franchise Ventures’ flow of franchise-investment inquiries in the United States.
- Georgia, Nevada and Florida stood head and shoulders above other states in the index, with scores of 183, 170 and 165 respectively.
- South Carolina, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Texas all ranked high on per-capita basis, with scores over 130.
- Also displaying above-average interest in franchising were states mostly clustered across the Southeast: Louisiana, North Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia and Colorado all scored above 100.
