Golden Opportunities in The Green Economy
The COVID-19 pandemic in the United States has made people more conscious about their health, and the personal choices they make. Buy the right franchise, and you could find yourself with healthy profits from people’s desire to be healthier.
One of the big growth areas is healthy eating. Obesity in the U.S. has rocketed in the last two decades, from 30.5% in 1999 to 42.4% in 2018 (CDC NCHS data). Eating a healthier diet is good for your body and reduces risks of disease and infection (such as COVID-19). It’s not a fad – it’s a life choice. Could you build a successful business in a health food franchise?
