“Based on ADP data, the year-over-year job growth rate of the U.S. franchise industry has been outpacing the broader private sector job market by more than one half of a percentage point,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, senior director of the ADP Research Institute. “Over the past year, payroll expansion among restaurants and business services, such as temporary staffing agencies, has been the primary driver of U.S. franchise job growth.
