2 min read

While restaurants are hiring, growth in the rest of the franchise industry isn't measuring up.

This October, the U.S. added 16,970 new franchise jobs, according to the ADP National Franchise Report. More than three out of four new jobs were in the restaurant industry, which grew by 13,240 jobs.

“Franchise job growth continues to be slower in the second half of 2014 after stronger growth March through June,” Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and head of the ADP Research Institute, said in a statement.  “While employment growth in the restaurant industry is slightly above its twelve-month average, the pace of franchise jobs added overall is running well below its average.”
