Buffalo wings & sandwiches formerly known as bw-3 Franchise Systems posted a stellar performance during 2006 with a 40% growth in stock price following revenue growth of more than 32% and profits up more than 84%; proving once and for all that a food service franchise can be a very good investment! Indeed, even with rapidly escalating stock prices, the ability to beat the S&P 500 is an impressive feat made even more enticing when one realizes this franchise is available with exclusive territory rights in rapidly growing states such as California and Florida!
This rapidly growing food franchise has experienced phenomenal growth expanding from 141 franchises in 2003 to 290 by the end of 2006. However, this isn't quite as rare as you may expect. According to the University of New Hampshire Rosenberg Center Franchise 50 Index, 42 of the 50 components showed positive gains. Even more impressive, total for the full year 2006 results show the Rosenberg Franchise 50 Index at 17.8% and the S&P 500 Index at 13.6%.
In fact, research indicates that public franchisers routinely outperform the S&P 500 9 out of every 10 years! If it's a great investment then perhaps it's time to explore the opportunity for small business ownership as an avenue of wealth creation.
