Franchising boom attracts entrepreneurs, and BAI plays a vital role in matching entrepreneurs with the best franchise concept
The pandemic led to a shift in the American workforce and a franchising boom. Many people rethink their chosen career paths and take the leap toward business ownership. A recent study released from the Peterson Institute for International Economics found Americans started 4.4 million businesses in 2020, a 24 percent increase over 2019 and the biggest increase on record.
Known for time-proven systems and a network of supportive fellow franchisees and home office support, franchising is becoming increasingly attractive for those who want to go into business and have the backing of a proven business model. As franchising flourishes, Business Alliance, Inc. (BAI), is busier than ever. BAI is one of the largest and oldest brokerage firms in the industry. After 30 years, we have connections with hundreds of franchises in every industry, from pizza to pet care.
BAI Registered Franchise Consultants act as a matchmaker to help guide entrepreneurs through the sometimes complex and overwhelming world of franchise opportunities. We train our consultants to help franchise systems find the entrepreneurs with the ideal resources, skill sets, and passion to succeed as part of their franchise network. There’s never been a better time to consider franchise consulting through BAI.
“Entrepreneurship is exploding. Corporate America is a lot less certain than it used to be. Many people are looking at business ownership who never looked at it before and are ready to take the leap. Our Registered Franchise Consultants are ready to create opportunities for more people,” says Natalie Barnes, President of BAI.

A recent article in America’s Best Franchises says the franchise industry “is primed to thrive in 2021” as the franchising industry is experiencing a franchise boom. Technology has given us new ways to do business, and many young entrepreneurs are poised to embrace franchising. As entrepreneurs from all backgrounds explore the possibilities of franchising, BAI is here to help.
“The atmosphere of business today has caused a lot of turmoil. Whenever that happens, and I’ve been in this business for 20 years, people have a lot of fear. A lot of it is real. People fear getting laid off, and at a certain age, it is tougher to get another job so they want to start a business,” says franchise industry expert Brian Felderstein. “We handhold people, we coach them, and we give them opportunities they may not have even known existed. It’s the American dream to be in business for themselves.”
Flexible life, meaningful work, and no added fees
Our brokers are highly qualified and may opt to work full-time, part-time, or run their home-based business in conjunction with another business. It’s also an affordable opportunity, including licenses fee, along with the necessary working capital to launch your business.
