Franchising in The Middle East There Will Bring Significant Opportunity for US Based Franchisors

As stability emerges in the Middle East there will be significant opportunity for the Franchising Community.

Any comments call the IFA International Franchise Association or go to their website for more information; http://www.franchise.org.

Franchising has the potential to bring the world together and unite us all as one, if we will let it. Capitalism pushes people up, while and socialism and communism push people down. Franchising by its very definition is the purest business format mirroring free market capitalism. In the United States franchising is going through a tough time right now with the over regulations and incessant litigation.

Maybe we ought to keep our eyes on the ball at home as we are participating in building up the Middle East with small business operations through franchising. Participating in the greatest business format in the recorded history of mankind is indeed a truly noble cause. Up lifting millions of Middle Easterners with meaningful work and good paying jobs is a gift that no other nation can give. We are so fortunate in this country to have entrepreneurs who have the where with all to provide such well thought out and perfected businesses in all industry sectors. I challenge anyone to deny that.
